Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte couldn't have asked for a better response from Heung-Min Son after controversially leaving the struggling South Korean star out of his starting team to face Leicester City.

After eight games without a goal, Son finally got back on the scoresheet Saturday, coming off the bench in the second half to score a 13-minute hat-trick in Spurs' 6-2 win over the relegation-threatened Foxes.

His drought-ending goal came courtesy of a sensational strike outside the box to double Tottenham's lead. But it was Son's second goal that was arguably the best of the bunch, as he put the match out of reach for Leicester with an identical curling strike - this time, with his weaker foot.

Son then killed the game off with a goal on the break that was initially called offside before VAR overturned the official's decision.
