Football fans all say the same thing after Heung Min Son hat trick vs Leicester

  • Son Heung Min became the first Totteham player to score a hat trick off the bench
  • The South Korean's strikes were his first three goals of the season
  • Fans instantly concluded that the 30-year-old's class was unquestionable

Football fans came up with the same conclusion about Heung Min Son after the South Korean cameo hat trick against Leicester City on Saturday, August 17.

The 30-year-old was dropped to the bench by boss Antonio Conte, who was keen on rotating his squad for the Leicester game.

Upon his introduction on the hour mark, the South Korean, who was the Premier League joint top scorer last season, reminded fans of his quality with two trademark long range strikes.

He was then played in to slot home a third past a helpless Danny Ward to round off an emphatic 6-2 victory for Antonio Conte’s side.

His first goal of the evening was a stunning right-footed strike from 25 yards, and he further showed his prowess with a near-similar strike, this time with his left foot.

The third goal needed confirmation from the video-assisted referee (VAR) as he was initially adjudged to have been offside.

Soon after the game, social media was ripe with reactions as Son became the first Tottenham player to score a hat trick from the bench.

“I can’t recall a better performance off the bench in a minute. Son Heung Min 2nd half hat trick, I think he is getting out of the rut.” One fans said.
