Son Heung-min on target as Tottenham end year on a high

Introduction to the article:
Tottenham secured a 3-1 home victory over Bournemouth in an entertaining Premier League match, with Son Heung-min scoring his 12th goal of the season.

A Hard-Fought Victory

Despite a strong start with Pape Sarr’s ninth-minute opener, Tottenham faced a tough Bournemouth side that played aggressively throughout the match. Bournemouth remained a threat throughout the game, missing key chances to score.

Injury Concerns and Timely Boosts

After Sarr sustained an injury and left the pitch in tears, Tottenham received an injury boost with Rodrigo Bentancur’s early return to the field, a month ahead of schedule. This was a much-needed positive development for the Spurs.

A Spirited Second Half

Following halftime, a resilient Bournemouth continued their offensive push, constantly testing Tottenham’s defense, but in the end, Spurs secured a hard-fought victory. Son’s second goal of the match and Richarlison’s late strike sealed the win for Tottenham.

Nearing the Top of the Table

With this victory, Tottenham closed the gap with their arch-rivals, Arsenal, and are now only a point behind them in the Premier League standings. Despite facing a feisty Bournemouth side, Tottenham ended the year on a high note.
