Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min picked up his fifth goal of the season on Thursday, tapping in a well-placed cross in the 65th minute to lead Spurs to a 2-0 win against Brentford.
 
Son was also involved in the first goal of the match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. In the 12th minute, Son shot down the wing, firing in a cross that got picked up by Brentford defender Pontus Jansson ended up rebounding off Brentford midfielder Sergi Canos for an own goal.
 
Son's 65th minute goal was much cleaner. Harry Kane playing Sergio Reguilón down the left side on a fast counter attack, Reguilón found Son in the box, and the Korean forward took one touch to beat the goalkeeper and give Tottenham a comfortable 2-0 lead.
 
Thursday's goal was Son's first in the Premier League since Oct. 17, when he scored against Newcastle. Across all competitions, he hasn't scored since Nov. 4, an unusually long dry spell for the prolific attacker.
 
Spurs now sit at sixth in the Premier League and will hope to further build on that lead this weekend, when they take on No. 19 Norwich City at home on Sunday.
