Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Heung-Min Son scored a scorcher of a goal against West Ham United but the Korean wasn’t in a celebratory mood after the draw as he felt his side deserved more from the game.
“I’m really upset not to get the three points, everyone is. We deserved more,” Son insisted in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.
It was largely one-way traffic at Wembley Stadium on Thursday night, as West Ham didn’t have a single shot on target in the first-half with Hugo Lloris a virtual spectator for most parts of the game.
The Hammers’ first shot on target, however, was an unstoppable one as Pedro Obiang scored a contender for goal of the season and Son absolved Lloris of any blame for the opener.
“Sometimes football is like this. Their goal was a great strike, Hugo (Lloris) could do nothing about that,” the in-form Korean winger stressed as he continued, “After that we showed good mentality, came back strong and created chances. We fought until the last moment. I just feel sorry for my team-mates and the fans who came to support us.”
Spurs, who had beaten Swansea 2-0 away on Tuesday, will now shift their focus to the FA Cup, where they take on AFC Wimbledon on Saturday before hosting Everton in the Premier League on January 15.
The Lilywhites are effectively out of the Premier League title race but remain in contention for the UEFA Champions League spots (top-four), as the fifth-placed Lilywhites are just three points of Liverpool, who are in fourth place.
