Son Heung-min may have scored a last-gasp winner away at Aston Villa but he was the subject of much criticism from fans for the chances he missed.
Spurs dominated the share of chances with 23 shots in total but two lapses in concentration at the back led Villa to open the scoring early on before finding an equaliser after half-time. However, the front-three of Son, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn caused problems throughout before Bjorn Engels’ mistake allowed Son to score with seconds remaining.
Dele Alli also had a decent game, receiving a match rating of 6 from The Independent, but he could not make the most of the opportunities he was presented with. That was the same story with Son, who even missed a penalty before tucking in the rebound, but he could have had a second-half hat-trick if Pepe Reina had not kept him out on several occasions, with poor decision-making also to blame.
Would Man Utd sell Dean Henderson to Tottenham?
Supporters took note of that and criticised him for it, with one moment in the second half likely leaving fans exasperated as the forward failed to take a shot on goal with just a defender to beat. It is no surprise one fan used the word “infuriating”.
Here is some of the reaction to the performance of the South Korean, who did at least hit the 50th Premier League goal mark with his two goals.
Love Son but his decision making in the last few games has been nothing short of awful

How many times…. Son wants so long on the ball.
He has been through on goal so many times. Shoot.

Son must be drunk. Honestly every single touch he has is the opposite of what he should do. Appalling performance #thfc
