Spurs, Son step up in the second half
Norwich came out ready to fight in the second half as they held some possession and pushed Tottenham back into their defensive block. Norwich’s push persisted for much of the half, but the Canaries ultimately paid for the space over the top conceding three more goals.
After Deki and Sonny had just missed connecting on a goal, Kulusevski made no doubt about the outcome, cutting in from the right side of the box onto his left foot and curling a beautiful shot past Krul.
It was a three-goal lead now for Spurs, and as Deki was coming off, the question remained, would Son score.
Shortly after Lucas Moura came on, he headed a flick past the defence onto a rushing Son. Unfortunately, for the second time in as many chances, Krul was up to the task and made an excellent save on Son’s shot. Moments later, Krul could not make a third.
Kane had the ball near midfield and played it forward to Moura, who used a delicate touch to split the defenders and play Son in on goal. After striking two powerful shots that Krul had saved, Sonny calmly slotted between Krul’s legs for his 22nd goal of the season.
Five minutes later, Son would collect the ball near the edge of the box off a Spurs free-kick and blast a superb shot into the top corner as Krul tried to stretch for it. With his 23rd goal, Son finished tied with Mo Salah, who scored for Liverpool and will share the Golden Boot.
Regardless, it was mission accomplished overall for Tottenham, as the clean sheet and the Golden Boot both take second fiddle to fourth place and a return to the Champions League.
