Ryan Mason and Gary Neville take to Twitter after Tottenham's 1-0 win against Crystal Palace
Son Heung-min continued his recent goal-scoring run as the Tottenham Hotspur summer signing fired Spurs to a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
The South Korea international scored his second goal in three games for the north London side after he fired past Palace goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in the 68th minute.
The former Bayer Leverkusen’s strike sealed Tottenham’s second win of the Premier League season, which lifted Mauricio Pochettino’s side up to ninth place in the table.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Tottenham’s victory.
