Tottenham captain Son Heung-min names the one exact thing they need to 'correct' against West Ham

Song Heung-min had to come to the rescue of his team again against Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham have had to come from behind to earn points 17 times already this campaign, which is more than any other team in the Premier League. They were made to work hard for the win against Luton Town that keeps them just in touch with Aston Villa in fourth. 

Again they conceded first this weekend and had to fight back for the win, with captain Son scoring his 160th Tottenham goal for the club. Despite being the match-winner he says they need to sort out their habit of always conceding first.

He told the BBC 5LIVE after the win in north London: "We do not want to always concede the first goal and then have to come back we need to correct that and ensure we don't have to always give ourselves a lot to do in games." 

Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou who would have been relieved that his team found a way back also admitted they were sloppy and needed to be better for the Tahith Chong goal.

He added: "I think we made the game pretty difficult for ourselves. We certainly had enough chances and we controlled the game pretty much from start to finish, but obviously, when the scoreline is as it is, disappointing goal we conceded. 

"That was the highly disappointing point of the day. I just thought it was preventable, but aside from that I thought the lads handled it really well in the second half."

Tottenham will take on West Ham United on Tuesday night, with the Hammers licking their wounds after being at the wrong end of a thrilling 4-3 game against Newcastle United.
