Tottenham striker Heung-min Son: Holding deserved dismissal

Tottenham striker Heung-min Son insists Arsenal defender Rob Holding deserved to be sent off during Thursday night's win.

Son struck in the 3-0 triumph and was also involved in Holding's dismissal.

He later said: "It's always good to win but especially this derby. It means a lot. We can close the gap. This game really, really feels nice.

"Obviously I want to play always but what can I say? I have to accept it. We have a game on Sunday so that's why. I am not angry just disappointed. I have to move on. I wanted to keep playing. We have an important game so I need to be ready, recover well and be fresh again.

"I was running into the space but [Rob Holding] broke the run and whether the ball is coming or not it was a dangerous challenge for me. It was a clear foul for me."
