CAIRO-20 September 2020: After suffering a 1-0 defeat at the opening game of the season against Everton at home, Tottenham Hotspur bounced back with a 5-2 win over Southampton.
Spurs South Korean winger Son Heung-min was the team’s hero on Sunday’s game after scoring four goals to give his manager Jose Mourinho the first three points this season.
"It's incredible to score four goals in the Premier League, it's a big honor," Son said after the game.
Son’s four goals were set up by the team striker, Harry Kane, who added the fifth goal for Spurs minutes before the final whistle.
The South Korean added “I wouldn't have scored four goals without this guy (Kane). He's amazing. Four assists, he deserved the man of the match today,"
Despite the loss, Southampton’s Danny Ings was superb as he scored his team’s two goals and was close from adding more goals in multiple occasions.
Tottenham strengthened their squad on Saturday as they announced the signing of former player, Gareth Bale, and Sergio Reguilon from Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
Kane believes that the new comers will add a great value to the team, saying “It's great to have Sergio and Gareth joining, there are a lot of games and it's a busy schedule so we need the whole squad,
