Tottenham Hotspur capitalized on a defensive error to end the first half of Sunday's North London derby level on goals with Arsenal. Spurs' Heung-min Son was the man responsible for the equalizer which came exactly 137 seconds after the Gunners had opened the lead.
Prior to the South Korean attacker's moment of luck, Alexandre Lacazatte had fired Mikel Arteta's men in front inside the 16th minute. In a game in which the team's struggled to create chances at the initial stages, the French striker pulled one out of the hat to smash home the opener from long range.
However, Lacazette's strike was subsequently eclipsed by a costly mistake by Sead Kolašinac which gifted Tottenham Hotspur a lifeline in no time. The German defender made a poor call to pass a ball to David Luiz from the half-way line and failed to find his intended target.
The chance then fell to Spurs' Heung-min Son who raced all the way to lob home the equaliser. The chance then fell to Spurs' Heung-min Son who raced all the way to lob home the equaliser. The forwar has now scored 10+ Premier League goals in each of his last four seasons. He joins Teddy Sheringham, Robbie Keane and Harry Kane as the fourth player to score 10+ PL goals in 4 successive seasons for Spurs.
