Fans were left confused by the drama and how it appeared to come from nothing.

However, it's been revealed Lloris was angry at the 27-year-old's lack of effort when closing down Yerry Mina in an Everton attack.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp said: "He [Son] absolutely gives up on it and there's a reaction. He [Lloris] is proud, he doesn't want to see someone running at his back four.

"He then shouts at Son and it's the most exciting thing that happens in the first half."

Lloris addressed the incident at full-time and stressed the disagreement would remain behind closed doors.

"It just belongs to the changing room," the Frenchman said per Metro. "Outside you can say whatever you want. There is a lot of respect between all the players in the changing room.

"What happened between me and Sonny is just something that is part of football sometimes. But there is no problem at all.

"You can see at the end of the game we are more than happy to be part of the team and have these three points."

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho also spoke about the incident and in typical fashion, labelling the fiery exchange as "beautiful".

"[The argument] was probably as a consequence of our meetings," he stated per BBC. "If you want to blame someone for that it's me," said the 57-year-old.

"I was critical of my boys. They were not critical enough with themselves. I asked them to be more demanding of each other.

"Son is an amazing kid. Everybody likes Son, but the captain told him you have to do more and give more to the team.

"It is something needed for the team to grow up. To grow up you need big personalities. When you have that reaction I have no doubts."

Giovani Lo Celso's strike deflected off Michael Keane for the game's only goal as Spurs climbed to eighth in the table.

They face bitter rivals Arsenal in the North London derby on Sunday afternoon.
