Tottenham Hotspur vs. Leicester City – Football Match Report – September 17, 2022


Son Heung-Min came off the bench and scored a quick-fire hat trick as Tottenham Hotspur rallied to a dominant 6-2 victory over bottom-place Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Leicester opened the scoring through a Youri Tielemans penalty, but Spurs struck back shortly after through a back-post header from Harry Kane.

Spurs defender Eric Dier sent Spurs ahead with a header from a corner, but Leicester’s James Maddison fired back with a superb finish from just inside the 18-yard box as he floated the ball over goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Brenden Rodgers must have hoped at half-time that his Leicester side would go on to pick up their first Premier League win of the season, but an error from midfielder Wilfred Ndidi allowed Spurs midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur to run through on goal and slot home.

Son, who came off the bench on 59 minutes, netted a hat trick with goals in the 73rd, 84th and 86th minute to condemn Leicester to their sixth defeat in seven league games this season.
