Tottenham captain Heung-min Son was on target once again during the 2-2 draw against arch-rivals Arsenal.
Son scored two well taken goals, both of them immediately after Arsenal scored as he put his team level.
Tottenham made a slow start to the game with Arsenal being the dominating team for the first half an hour.
And in the 26th minute it was the home side who took a deserving lead. Saka’s shot from outside the box going far post was guided into his own net by Cristian Romero.
The goal seemed to wake the away team who went on to become much more threatening from there onwards.
And it did not take them long to get back in the game. In the 42nd minute, Heung-min Son had the ball in the back of the net from a James Maddison assist.
10 minutes into the second half, Romero conceded a penalty after Ben White’s shot was handled by the Argentine which was fired in by Saka.
But a minute later, Spurs were back in the game with Maddison capitalising on a Jorginho mistake before laying a pass for his captain who scored his second of the game to make it 2-2.
