Eric Dier Asked Tim Krul What Mo Salah Had Given Him After Denying Heung-Min Son

Footage captured Eric Dier asking Tim Krul, "what's (Mo) Salah giving you, man?" after he denied teammate Heung-Min Son in the 5-0 thrashing of Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Spurs blitzed the Premier League's bottom club on the final day to secure Champions League football next season after a stellar turnaround under Antonio Conte to pip Arsenal to fourth spot.

Despite it raining goals, Krul was in inspired form and made a number of key stops to deny Son, who was chasing the Premier League Golden Boot.

And after a fine save to keep out the South Korean, England defender Dier couldn't resist a jokey comment about Krul being on some sort of mission for Salah.

However, with Spurs 3-0 up through a Dejan Kulusevski double either side of a Harry Kane strike, Son did then score a superb quickfire brace to take his league goals tally to 23 for the season.

Salah came off the bench for Liverpool to put them 2-1 up at Wolves at Anfield in the 84th minute, meaning that both finished on the same amount of goals and therefore shared the Golden Boot.

In a clip that did the rounds on social media, Son could be seen asking for updates on how Salah was getting on in his Golden Boot quest.

"He’s scored? Salah’s scored?” was the comment from Son.


Both star forward were presented with their awards after the game but Son certainly looked happier than Salah in the official pictures.

Reflecting on winning the prize, Son told Sky Sports: "It's incredible to have this award. I can't believe it. I got really emotional. I dreamed of it as a child. Literally it's my in hands. I can't believe it."

The 29-year-old's feat is made even more impressive by the fact he did not have a single penalty in his tally.
