The Sevilla player left the field with a mouth full of blood and didn't let the incident go away after the referee blew for half-time.
He confronted Son, who shrugged him away. But before the Argentinean could react, he had Richarlison and Romero in his face.
They came to Son's aid, with Spurs' new Brazilian star wasting no time to have his teammate's back.
