Kieran Trippier on what Son Heung-min is always doing in Tottenham Hotspur training

Son Heung-min scored his first Tottenham Hotspur goal in 12 appearances against Watford.

Kieran Trippier has told the Hampstead and Highgate newspaper that he wasn’t surprised by Son Heung-min’s audacious piece of skill which won Tottenham Hotspur the match against Watford.

Son flicked in Trippier’s cross in the last minute of Spurs’ game at Vicarage Road on Monday, with a wonderful piece of skill.

It was a goal which was fitting of winning any match, but Trippier claims that he is used to seeing Son attempt similar tricks - as the South Korean international does it so often in training.

"It was a great finish but that’s no surprise from Sonny because he does it in training every day, with the skills he’s got," the right-back said. 

“I was happy to get an assist but most importantly we got the points because it’s not an easy place to come to.

In the match against Watford, Spurs had gone in front when Eric Lamela scored in the first half.

They were pegged back, though, as Odion Ighalo continued his scoring streak.

Watford then looked to be good value for a point, even after Nathan Ake was sent off, but Son showed his ability in the last minute.

It was an important goal for the 23-year-old, as he has been suffering a mini-drought of late.

Son made a blistering start at Tottenham, but had not scored in 12 appearances prior to his goal against Vicarage Road.

Spurs’ win at Watford has kept them in fourth place in the Premier League table.
