Son Heung-Min Mocked For Dive Against West Ham United

Son Heung-Min Mocked For Dive Against West Ham United

Son was accused of diving after the ball was kicked towards him ahead of a Tottenham Hotspur corner, and it doesn't look great

Son-Heung Min made the difference as Tottenham Hotspur beat West Ham United on Sunday, but the forward was still mocked during his performance.

Spurs and West Ham were both desperate for the three points, as they continue to hope they can catch London rivals Arsenal to finish in the top four.

Things didn't start well for the Hammers, as Kurt Zouma scored an own goal after just nine minutes, and Son really made the difference with his two goals, despite Said Benrahma getting his side back in the game to make it 2-1.

Whilst his goals, and the part that Harry Kane played in both of them, was being lauded, the South Korean forward blotted his copy book with an embarrassing dive.

Whilst the Spurs forward walked to take a corner, Zouma kicked the ball at him, not particularly hard, and sent the former Bayer Leverkusen player to the ground somehow.

Antonio Conte isn't likely to care too much, as Son's brace, and the three points against David Moyes' team, rounded off a good week for his team.

In midweek Harry Kane had earned three points in the win over Brighton, and spectacularly kicked a bottle of Coca-Cola in celebration, and the six points has put them above Manchester United into fifth.

They remain behind their local rivals Arsenal, after the Gunners beat Aston Villa, and a perturbed Steven Gerrard on Saturday, and have played one game more than Mikel Arteta's team.

The two sides do still have to play before the end of the season, after the first game was controversially postponed in January due to Covid.
