It was another win for Tottenham Hotspur at their new Stadium last night, having started off with a bang against Crystal Palace last weekend.
Spurs returned to action last night for the Champions League quarter-final clash against Manchester City, and eventually won the game 1-0 thanks to a late strike by Heung-Min Son.
Last night’s game was the first of three meetings between the two clubs in the space of 12 days, and the period could end up proving to be a defining one for both sides.
Spurs players showed a strong performance against City, with Hugo Lloris saving an early penalty from Sergio Aguero. However, it was Son’s winning goal that got many fans talking.
Some sections of Tottenham fans took to social networking site Twitter to lavish praise on the 26-year-old South Korea international:

Much respect to Heung Min Son. It takes a lot for me to praise anything Korean but he deserves all the accolades

As the Premier League top-four race continues to heat up, Tottenham need Son to be on his very best form between now and the end of the season.
