Son Heung-min scored a hat trick Saturday in a convincing 6-2 victory against Leicester City. To be specific, it took Son Heung-min just 13 minutes and 21 seconds to score his hat trick.
What made the trio of goals by Tottenham Hotspur‘s Son Heung-min special was that he scored them after coming on as a substitute. Playing at the new White Hart Lane, the South Korean international came off the bench in minute 65. His performance was even more impressive considering he had been scoreless in his last eight games for the Tottenham Hotspur.
Son Heung-min scores hat trick; Leicester in trouble
Despite losing 6-2, Leicester City were actually the first to score in this match after converting a penalty. But from there on, mistakes were made aplenty by both sides before Son Heung-min put the game well out of reach for the Foxes.
Leicester City’s defeat means that the club are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League. Brendan Rodgers’ side has just one point out of a possible 21. And with Premier League clubs entering the international break, it’s very likely that Rodgers may get sacked.
What is most worrisome for Leicester City is their goal difference. While the club has had no problems scoring this season, Leicester City have conceded 22 goals. That’s the most number of goals conceded by any team in the league so far this season.
Leicester City’s next match is against Nottingham Forest on October 3. With both clubs at the bottom of the table, it’s a must-win game for both sides. It’s a relegation six pointer as early as October.
