Tottenham vs Luton LIVE!

Tottenham captain Son Heung-min struck late on to secure a 2-1 Premier League victory over Luton Town to bolster his side's top-four ambitions on Saturday. Son started and finished a flowing Tottenham move in the 86th minute to leave relegation battlers Luton with nothing to show from a spirited display in north London.

Tahith Chong gave Luton a surprise early lead with Son being denied by the woodwork soon afterwards. Tottenham equalised in the 51st minute when Issa Kabore scored an own goal and the hosts' pressure was eventually rewarded with Son's clincher.

Tottenham moved into fourth place with 56 points, ahead of Aston Villa on goals scored although Villa were in action later at home to Wolves. Luton slipped back below Nottingham Forest into the relegation zone.

16:53 , Alex Young

Son was always the most likely to get the winner but Spurs but credit to his support cast. It's another assist for Brennan Johnson after great work from Timo Werner.

Postecoglou got it right by introducing the Welshman for Kulusevski and leaving Werner on at the interval.

16:50 , Alex Young

90min: Nine minutes added on. This is far from over.


16:47 , Alex Young

86min: A Spurs break and finally the front three click all at the same time!

16:46 , Alex Young

16:42 , Alex Young

81min: Into the final 10 minutes and Luton are retreating.


16:40 , Alex Young

16:37 , Alex Young

Ten minutes ago, it looked like a matter of time before Spurs found a second goal, as Luton retreated deeper and deeper.

But the Hatters have steadied the ship and look much more comfortable all of a sudden. A big 15 minutes in both clubs' seasons ahead.

16:32 , Alex Young

72min: Johnson lays the ball off for Porro to fire at goal from the edge of the area, but the full-back is leaning back and his side-footed effort spins over the bar.

Had to hit the target.

16:31 , Alex Young

71min: Bentancur almost sets up Son sliding into the six-yard box, but the cross is a tad in front of the forward. Bentancur’s follow up is then blocked.

16:29 , Alex Young

68min: Double change for Spurs. Maddison and Sarr replaced by Lo Celso and Bentancur.

16:28 , Alex Young

67min: Spurs losing momentum as Luton start to build more of a foothold. A little over 20 minutes to go.

16:26 , Alex Young

65min: Vicario needs to be alert to deny Clark, just on as a sub, from the edge of the area.

16:23 , Alex Young

62min: Werner again looks certain to score and again Kabore is on hand with a crucial block!

16:20 , Alex Young

59min: Udogie is down after a tangle with Berry, giving away a free kick in the process, but he will be OK to continue.

16:17 , Alex Young

57min: Johnson finds Son in the area, and he looks certain to tuck home but Kaminski makes a fine stop.

16:16 , Alex Young

Another positive impact from the bench by Johnson after he changed the recent home games against Brentford, Brighton and Crystal Palace as a substitute.

This match is following a familiar script, with Spurs rallying after the interval following a poor first half.


16:15 , Alex Young

54min: Spurs are purring. Maddison is pulling the strings and sends Porro free in the area, but the defender’s cross to the back post is cut out.


16:13 , Alex Young

51min: Kabore puts into his own net under pressure from Werner, but this is all about Johnson whipping in a superb cross.

16:10 , Alex Young

49: Spurs win a free kick about 35 yards out, which Porro bends in but is cleared easily.

16:09 , Alex Young

48min: Maddison and Johnson link up for the first time and almost carves open the chance for a goal, with the latter looking for Son but getting closed out.

Smart movement from the sub. Spurs fans in better voice.

16:07 , Alex Young

Postecoglou has seen enough, and sends on Brennan Johnson for Dejan Kulusevski at the interval.

Timo Werner seemed like the more obvious man to make way but this change should mean Spurs have wingers attacking both posts, which wasn't always the case in the first half.

16:06 , Alex Young

47min: Luton change, too, as Hashioka replaces Burke.

16:05 , Alex Young

46min: ...and we are back underway!

16:05 , Alex Young

Brennan Johnson is coming on, with Kulusevski replaced.

16:04 , Alex Young

The players are back out.

16:02 , Alex Young

Almost time for the second half.

15:57 , Alex Young

You don’t fear for Spurs quite yet, but you feel they need to score quite soon after half-time to put the fear in Luton.

Some boos from the home supporters as another hugely underwhelming first half from Spurs comes to an end. It's now six straight first halves without a goal for Ange Postecoglou's side.


15:49 , Alex Young

49min: Luton with a late corner but well cleared by Dragusin... and that’s half-time!

15:47 , Alex Young

46min: Three minutes added on.

15:45 , Alex Young

44min: A rare chance for Luton, again at the back post, but this time Doughty’s volley is blocked by Porro.

15:43 , Alex Young

41min: More groans as Romero’s pass towards Son into the area is overhit and rolls out of play.

15:40 , Alex Young

39min: Spurs play it short to Bissouma, who tries to find Dragusin at the back post... but it sails out for a goal kick.

15:40 , Alex Young

38min: Son’s deflected shot almost finds Maddison in the six-yard box, but does win a corner.

15:37 , Alex Young

36min: Burke now booked.

15:35 , Alex Young

All the noise is coming from the away end here, as Spurs continue to struggle to get back into this game. They have been so clunky in the final third, with a real absence of precision or a final pass.

15:35 , Alex Young

33min: A superb run from Son, driving at the defence. As he approaches the edge of the area, he shapes to shoot but lays the ball off to Maddison, who finds Werner... who finds a Luton player.

Cue groans.

15:33 , Alex Young

31min: Barkley booked for chopping down Maddison.

15:31 , Alex Young

30min: It’s just not quite clicking for Spurs at the moment. Wayward final balls as they try to find an equaliser.

15:29 , Alex Young

27min: Son tries to find Maddison after winning the ball high up the pitch, but his pass is nowhere near his team-mate.

15:27 , Alex Young

26min: Chong proving a thorn in Spurs’ side, giving Porro plenty to think about and now wins a free kick off the full-back. A breather for Luton.

15:25 , Alex Young

23min: Spurs look in full control but Luton holding firm at the moment.


15:21 , Alex Young

20min: How are Spurs not level?! Son round the keeper, hits the inside of the near post, the ball rolls across the line and then hits the other post!

Then Sarr’s follow up is cleared off the line.

15:19 , Alex Young

15min: Spurs should be level! Werner turns Kabore inside out but then can’t apply the finish at the far post.

15:13 , Alex Young

11min: Spurs are patient with the ball. Son and Kulusevski seeing plenty of it.

15:11 , Alex Young

8min: He is fine to continue and the ball is back with Spurs.

15:09 , Alex Young

6min: Kaminski is down getting treatment after a clash with Kulusevski. The Spurs forward’s momentum taking him into the keeper after stretching for the ball.

15:08 , Alex Young

5min: Spurs need to regroup. Son tries to make something happen but is crowded out.


15:06 , Alex Young

3min: Luton stun Spurs in the third minute!

Townsend does superbly down the right, breaking after a Kulusevski chance, to drag Udogie wide and then find Chong in the centre to beat Vicario.

Statuesque defending.


15:01 , Alex Young

1min: Here we go.

14:58 , Alex Young

Here come the teams!

I imagine Ange Postecoglou was keeping an eye on Newcastle's dramatic comeback against West Ham, with Spurs visiting the Hammers on Tuesday night.

The head coach's decision to leave Micky van de Ven and Brennan Johnson on the bench this afternoon was surely with that game in mind.

Ange Postecoglou expecting a 'tough game'

13:35 , Alex Young

“Luton have been ultra-competitive all year. They've always, in every game, really made it hard for the opposition. I think Rob has done a brilliant job this year, considering all the challenges they've had and have currently got with injuries.

“Every game I've watched them, they're always competitive, they always make it difficult for the opposition and it'll be no different for us tomorrow and we've got to be ready for it.

“We're back at home, obviously the last game was disappointing but we've got to make sure we get back to playing our football and playing our best because that's what's going to be needed.”

Rob Edwards tells Spurs to expect a different Luton

13:13 , Alex Young

Tottenham secured a narrow 1-0 win at Kenilworth Road in October despite a red card for Yves Bissouma.

Micky van de Ven scored the second-half winner but only after a crazy first 20 minutes when the visitors peppered the Luton goal.

"They were amazing and we got a few things wrong that first game," said Hatters boss Edwards.

"The plan was right for where we were at that time and how we were going about things. But the first 18 minutes or so it was like 'wow!'. The speed and the quality of their play was just incredible.

"I remember being probably the most animated I've ever been on the touchline because it was clear what we weren't getting right. But once we adjusted, yes they dominated the ball but we were in the game.

"There was a lot to like about that performance at that stage of the season, going up against Tottenham the way they were performing at the time, they were on a real roll.

"But we are going about our work differently now so we'll see - at there place as a well, a big stadium which is going to create a really good atmosphere - how we deal with them this time around. I'm looking forward to see how far we've come. Hopefully we'll carry a little bit more threat this time."

While Spurs aren’t always totally convincing at home, questions would be asked if they do not beat a team who have won only once in ten games.

Spurs to win 3-1.

Tottenham team news

Tottenham head coach Ange Postecoglou is able to welcome back defender Micky van de Ven today, while Richarlison is managing a niggling knee injury.

Van de Ven missed the 3-0 defeat at Fulham before the international break with a hamstring strain but has trained this week, and is likely to replace Radu Dragusin in the back four.

Richarlison is also in contention to start despite not featuring for Brazil over the hiatus.

Postecoglou has said the forward is ready to play but Richarlison may have to settle for a place on the bench again, with Timo Werner and Brennan Johnson also competing to join captain Heung-min Son in the front three.

The Australian faces a decision in midfield, where Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur and Pape Sarr are battling for two places.

Bissouma was sent off in Spurs' 1-0 win at Luton back in October but has generally been favoured by Postecoglou as Spurs' deepest midfielder.
