The Spurs ace's solo effort against the Blues was not in Sky Sports' four-man Twitter shortlist of best goals that weekend.
The South Korea international broke his duck for the 2018-19 campaign in style as Spurs ran out 3-1 win over the Blues at Wembley Stadium on 24 November.
Son had not long returned to Tottenham after helping his country win the Asian Cup, a trophy that also saw him become exempt from national military service.
With Spurs leading their London rivals 2-0 nearing the hour mark, the 26-year-old latched on to Dele Alli's delivery from deep and marauded forward, outpacing Jorginho.
He then cut into the Blues area, getting the better of David Luiz and slotting beyond the reach of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the far corner of the net for his 50th Spurs goal.
Tottenham proudly announced the news on their Twitter feed and urged fans to vote ahead of the 5pm deadline on Friday 17 May:
Son's goal was famously not shortlisted by Sky Sports' Twitter account when it came to the best Premier League goals of that particular weekend:
Here is how some of the Lilywhites faithful responded to Son's GOTS nomination on the social media platform:
Yes. If Salah, Ronaldo, Messi score that, not only would it win an award but the media would go on about it for months.— Spursy (@CarnoustieC) 16 May 2019
Hope you win Sonny!— Patricia Price (@Patrici12240595) 16 May 2019
Just a reminder that this goal wasn't even nominated by @SkySportsNews for the goal of the weekend— Tony Spumoni (@tony_spumoni) 16 May 2019
Well deserved, one of the best solo goals over ever seen! #COYS— Tyler Barella (@TylerBarella) 16 May 2019
Great goal, but did help Jorginho was moon walking at the time!— david coys (@Dvlh2) 16 May 2019
Agree with Townshend choice but MOTD never even considered Son's goal .— Eric Hatton (@scobie56) 16 May 2019
I think he may be let down by the pathetic attempts by the Chelsea defenders to stop him. The winner will be a Liverpool penalty or deflection, if the FIFA goal of the year is anything to go by!— Nick Burns (@kalkanspur) 16 May 2019
I’m a fan but tbh Townsend’s goal was miles better— ㅤㅤㅤClinical (@ClinicalCrssr) 16 May 2019
