(Yonhap) — SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Yonhap) — Tottenham Hotspur’s unbeaten record in the Premier League has been extended thanks to Son Heung-min’s second consecutive game-winning goal.
Son scored in the 71st minute of Tottenham’s 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace on Friday (local time) at Selhurst Park in London.
He had previously played a decisive role in his team’s 2-0 triumph against Fulham on Monday by scoring a pivotal goal.
After a sluggish start, Tottenham took the lead in the second half of the match against Palace with an own goal by defender Joel Ward and Son’s goal, before conceding a late goal to Jordan Ayew in stoppage time.
Son’s goal was his eighth of the season and moved him to within one goal of the league’s leading scorer, Erling Haaland of Manchester City. Son also has one assist.
Friday’s win extended Tottenham’s lead in the Premier League. They have 26 points in 10 games, five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
