Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Luton Town: Son Heung-min scores late winner to boost Spurs' top-four hopes

Son Heung-min scores for Tottenham in their Premier League home match against Luton

Son Heung-min scored a late winner as Tottenham recovered from a goal down to beat Luton and move into the top four of the Premier League.

Tahith Chong's well-worked goal had given the Hatters an early lead, but Spurs responded well and equalised early in the second half when Brennan Johnson's cross was turned into his own net by Issa Kabore.

Spurs laid siege to the Luton goal after restoring parity, but a series of crucial last-ditch challenges kept Ange Postecoglou's team at bay - and Alfie Doughty somehow prevented Johnson's close-range effort from rolling over the line.

However, there was nothing Luton could do about Son's winning goal, which took a deflection off half-time substitute Daiki Hashioka on its way past Hatters goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski.

Aston Villa will reclaim fourth place with a draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers later on Saturday.
