It was a case of home sweet home for Tottenham as they celebrated moving into their new stadium with a convincing win. Hailstones showered the pitch ahead of the first game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen each scored a goal in the second half to help Spurs bounce back in style.
Following Sunday's 1-2 defeat to Liverpool, Tottenham needed to bounce back in order to strengthen their chances of finishing in the top four.
Playing in their new Stadium, Tottenham made 14 attempts in the first half, more than they did in the first half in any of their 14 Premier League games at Wembley this season. However, the north London side settled for a goalless draw in the first half.
After a number of chances Spurs had to depend on Son who put them ahead. The 26-year-old became a history maker, netting the first goal at Tottenham's new stadium.
Kane drove inside the box down the left and powered past Kelly, who looked to have fouled him. The ball rolled across the six-yard box and all eyes were on the ref - apart from Eriksen's - who played on and scrambled the ball into the net through the goalkeeper. It probably would have been a penalty but Eriksen's played to the whistle and the goal was given.
