Tottenham Hotspur almost always bring in goals against Leicester City and the Spurs and Foxes didn’t disappoint with the hosts’ 6-2 decision in defense on Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Heung Min-sung came off the bench to score a 13-minute hat-trick in Tottenham’s triumph after Spurs were 1-0 down six minutes later and were at 2-2 by half-time.

Tottenham scored the only goal in the second half. And it was all a highlight as Rodrigo Betancourt forced a pass and crushed Danny Ward before Heung-min Son came off the bench to score a sensational trio of goals.

What have we learned from Tottenham – Leicester; Heung-Min Son’s reaction

Spurs have Conte juice: A mid-week defeat in the UEFA Champions League has already sparked a backlash from Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who coached Spurs the day after the disappointing loss to Sporting Lisbon. An early concession after that? Well, let’s just say it’s no wonder Tottenham have overcome any mid-week fatigues and scored four of their last five goals against Leicester. No, the Foxes can’t defend right now – more on that point – but Tottenham have never felt in danger of taking anything but three points, even when they were down 1-0 and level 2-2.

The Son, in particular, responds to the call: Antonio Conte responded to Richarlison’s improvement and Heung-Min Son’s unexpected stellar turn by including the former in the starting XI. But a player like Son will always have a chance to shine, and he did. Son’s goals were fourth, fifth and sixth of the day, but he will fight for the honor of being the best goal of the game. Big time thing from South Korea.

“I didn’t finish well this season,” Son said. via BBC. “I was also a bit unlucky with an own goal, two offsides and a shot on the crossbar. I knew there were goals ahead and I didn’t worry. I have always had great fans, teammates and coaches. … I was almost sure that I was ready to do a hat-trick! I’m glad I was able to help the team, it’s really important and I can go to the national team with renewed vigor. … I get emotional [about the crowd support] to be honest. There was amazing support and I always felt like I was disappointing my teammates and fans with my performances. They have always supported me.”

Foxes only know half of the game: New player centre-back Vought Faes has had his moments but the fact remains that Leicester City are absolutely brutal defensively right now, leading to a chicken-or-egg question regarding transferred goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. Was he what good? Danny Ward can’t be that bad, but the question is whether Leicester’s defense has been hiding his Danish star for years. Leicester started the day conceding the third most goals scored in the Premier League and boasting the fifth worst xGA. The situation is not improving and Leicester could be one of the surprise teams in danger of relegation as Fulham and Bournemouth were victorious at the start of the season.

brandy watch: Leicester have been terrible this season and the Foxes are counting on the international break to bounce back. Is there any chance that this means giving up his great reputation, but an unstable performer manager?

Rogers admits he’s under a lot of pressure.

“Even more,” Rogers said. “I come every day and do my job. I perfectly understand the indignation of the fans. I can’t hide from it. This is my responsibility. … No matter what happens, I will respect them very much [the owners] because they gave me a lot of support. I understand the game. The score did not reflect the game, but the bottom line is that this is a heavy defeat. They gave me excellent support. Whatever happens to me at Leicester, whether I stay and fight, I will always respect them.”

Two things are very true in this statement:

  1. That’s very commendable for a man who definitely didn’t make it, but at the same time saw the nightmare of the summer transfer window.
  2. It’s very honest and perhaps a harbinger of what’s to come, or even opening the door for the bosses to let him go without much remorse.

He is also likely to be entitled to a rather consolatory payment in the event of dismissal.

Key storylines and star players

The result in Portugal may have been different from everyone else, but the performance itself was actually very similar to how Tottenham played in the Premier League. Thanks to a few well-timed goals, the Spurs managed to come out (mostly) from the right side in every mediocre performance, but were eventually forced to fall victim to their own poor chance-making and unimaginative possession. Mostly, the struggles of Son Heung-min, last season’s Golden Boot winner who has yet to open his scoring for the 2022-2023 season, have prevented Tottenham from gaining momentum too quickly. At the same time, they are one point away from the top of the PL, and have not shown anything close to their best.

As for the Foxes, the unfortunate one does not even begin to explain their existence since the beginning of summer. Leicester signed just one new player during the summer transfer window, with Wout Faes brought in shortly before the deadline to replace Wesley Fofan, who moved to Chelsea for $80m. The season started with a two-goal lead over Brentford (Leicester’s only so far), followed by five consecutive defeats and 14 goals conceded. Brendan Rodgers is no doubt feeling the pressure as his employment becomes more and more insignificant with each fleeting loss.
