There was an early injury… to a referee. Mike Jones hurt his calf in warm-up and needed to swap spots with fourth official Kevin Friend.
Jonas Lossl made a fine save on Harry Kane, and the latter won a dangerous free kick in the 19th minute. Christian Eriksen presided over the chance, and his shot was deflected wide of the goal by the wall.
Son scored a terrific goal to give Spurs a well-earned lead, dancing around Lossl to finish a very well-worked team goal. It started with an Eriksen pick and fine vision by Eric Dier.
Lossl made another good stop on Kane in the 38th minute, collecting the well-protected rebound.

Terence Kongolo got away with what should’ve been a penalty kick award to Son and Spurs.
The South Korean wasn’t deterred and scored a goal within two minutes when Kane delivered a remarkable cross over the Town defense and onto the path of Son.
His second, Spurs second, Town’s death knell on the day.
