Spurs fans furious with Son & Foyth vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth vs Tottenham

Tottenham travelled to Bournemouth in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Spurs started the weekend in 3rd-place in the Premier League table, four points above 5th-placed Arsenal.

So, a win against the Cherries would have secured their Champions League status for next season.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have avoided relegation and can’t finish 7th so their season is pretty much over.

Son & Foyth lose their cool

And the first 45 showed that it was only really Tottenham who were playing for anything.

They had the better of the chances and probably would have been ahead if not for several good stops from Bournemouth goalkeeper, Mark Travers.

Despite their dominance, Spurs suffered a big blow at the end of the first-half.

Heung-min Son, somewhat uncharacteristically, lost his temper after being tackled by Jefferson Lerma.

Son would then get up and shove the Bournemouth midfielder, causing him to receive a straight red card.

The South Korean will now miss Spurs’ final league game of the season vs Everton.

After lashing out against Lerma and getting himself sent off in a key clash, some Spurs fans are not too happy with Son.

Spurs fans are also furious with Juan Foyth after the centre-back managed to get himself sent off last than three minutes after coming on.
