Heung-Min Son was the most dangerous player on the pitch for the 'Lilywhites.' Not only did his early cross caused chaos for the Spurs' early goal, but he also sealed the deal by sprinting up the pitch to tap the ball home from Sergio Reguilon's pass.
Son also made history by becoming just the fifth player ever to score 75+ Premier League goals for Spurs.
''For me, Sonny is a really, really good player, a top player,'' Antonio Conte said after the game. ''He’s a modern player. He has great quality. He’s fast, he’s resilient, he’s strong. When you have all these characteristics, it means that you’re a top player and Sonny has all these characteristics.''

Son's performance against Brentford was a remarkable one. The South Korean recorded 44 touches with an 81% passing accuracy.
He also won eight duels, one interception and registered eight crosses into the opposition's box.
"It was a good performance against a dangerous team," Conte added. "I'm happy because I have seen a great commitment and a good passion about the players.
"It's a good reaction (after last week's loss to Mura). In a loss you learn a lot but now we have to think about another Premier League game on Sunday (against Norwich City).''
