Spurs relief as Son’s late winner completes comeback against Luton

Heung-Min Son scored a late winner to get Tottenham’s Champions League qualification hopes back on track with a 2-1 comeback home win over relegation strugglers Luton.

The Spurs captain’s 86th-minute deflected strike completed the turnaround for Ange Postecoglu’s side that moved them above Aston Villa into the top four.

Luton, who drop into the bottom three, threatened a shock result at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Tahith Chong scored a third-minute opener.

But half-time substitute Brennan Johnson made an instant impact in the 51st minute to provide the cross which Luton defender Issa Kabore turned into his own net.

Spurs looked to be heading for a damaging draw as one of the closest goal-line technology decisions in Premier League history denied Johnson in the 78th minute with the ball just millimetres from going in after Alfie Doughty’s clearance from behind the line.

But Son’s late heroics rescued a relived Spurs, who bounce back from their disappointing defeat at Fulham, while Luton drop to 18th with 17th-placed Nottingham Forest ahead on goal difference.
