Tottenham captain Son: We were fantastic

Tottenham captain Heung-min Son declared their performance as "fantastic" after victory over Newcastle.

Spurs won 4-1 with Son scoring from the penalty spot.

He later said: "When you're winning you enjoy it more. To bounce back like that is very important. We don't want to make any more mistakes like we have done. I thought today was fantastic. I hope we can continue to perform like this and stay humble.

"We said we had to be more ruthless. We were ruthless today and were creating chances. We did that fantastic job. To beat Newcastle 4-1 is not easy. They are a very strong side, so credit all the players and fans.

"We are playing in the Premier League, we have to demand each other more and more. It's never enough. Those amazing teams always keep going. It should be a habit for us.

"If we continue to be strong like this, we will be a very good side."

On taking his penalty, he added: "Shall we call Harry [Kane] back? I practiced all the time, even when Harry was here. And I learned a lot from him."
