After Tottenham’s 4-1 defeat against Leicester, Son Heung-min expressed his sadness in the aftermath. It was also a difficult debut for the club’s new signing, Pedro Porro, who was criticized as “unbelievably bad” by former manager Tim Sherwood.
Antonio Conte was back on the touchline for the match, just days after undergoing surgery. Despite starting strong with a goal from Rodrigo Bentacur, Tottenham struggled against Brendan Rodger’s team and eventually lost due to goals from Nampalys Mendy, James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Harvey Barnes.
Son was candid in his evaluation of the game and stressed the need for the team to learn from their mistakes. In an interview with Match of the Day, he said: “We started well and created opportunities, but after the first goal was scored, we quickly conceded another and it was downhill from there. Leicester was clinical, almost scoring every chance they had.
It’s a very disappointing result. I think it’s very sad. We knew it was going to be a tough match, but the Premier League never makes things easy. This should serve as a big lesson for us. I don’t think complacency was the issue, as we were prepared and ready to play. We just need to learn from this.”
Spurs take on West Ham in their next Premier League match next weekend.
