By on December 28, 2015

Tottenham Hotspur moved up to third in the Premier League table after a last gasp winner from Heung-min Son secured a 2-1 win at Watford on Monday afternoon.

Spurs started well and opened the scoring in the 16th minute when Erik Lamela cooly slotted home from the edge of the box following a swift break-away from the visitors.

Watford levelled things up just before half-time when in-form striker Odion Ighalo used his strength to break free from the Spurs defence before poking home for 1-1 in the 41st minute.

The huge turning point of the game came midway through the second half when on-loan defender Nathan Ake was sent off for a high challenge on Lamela near the half-way line.

Tottenham took full advantage and grabbed a late winner as substitute Son flicked home at the near post to secure a huge three points for Spurs. The win sees the North Londoners move up to third in the table and within three points of leaders Leicester.
