Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-min struck late on to secure a 2-1 Premier League victory over Luton Town to bolster his side's top-four ambitions on Saturday.

South Korean superstar Son started and finished a flowing Tottenham move in the 86th minute to leave relegation battlers Luton with nothing to show from a spirited display in north London. Tahith Chong gave Luton a surprise early lead with Son being denied by the woodwork soon afterwards. 

Tottenham equalised in the 51st minute when Issa Kabore scored an own goal and the hosts' pressure was eventually rewarded with Son's clincher.

Tottenham moved into fourth place with 56 points, ahead of Aston Villa on goals scored although Villa were in action later at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Luton slipped back below Nottingham Forest into the relegation zone.
