Tottenham’s season looks to be falling apart after they lost 2-1 to Newcastle United  in the Premier League on Sunday evening. Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron put the visitors in-front before a Harry Kane header reduced the scoreline in the second half.

Spurs came into the game looking for their six home win in the Premier League- but they left empty handed and lost the invincible home form. The defeat is the second for Spurs this week and their manager Antonio Conte will be worried given how dominating Newcastle United were at certain periods of the game.

Harry Kane’s low header at the back post looked to have given them a life wire, the England’s striker’s 10th of the campaign but they just  weren’t on it and left the game empty handed. The form of Son Heung-min will be a worry to both manager Antonio Conte and fans who have not scored a Premier League goal this season when he’s started.

The South Korea spot in the starting eleven is almost as Harry Kane but the fact that his only three goals in the league has come against Leicester, a game he was introduced from the bench will be playing in his manager’s head. The problems are piling for Spurs who will hope that injured duo Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison to help the team.

South Korean forward Son Heung-min is an incredible athlete but his form when starting Premier League games got some fans thinking maybe it’s time to get him contributing from the bench.
