March 30, (THEWILL)- Tottenham Hotspur strengthened their bid for UEFA Champions League qualification, as Son Heung-min’s late strike claimed a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Luton Town on Saturday. The result propelled Ange Postecoglou’s side into fourth place in the English Premier League, leapfrogging Aston Villa on goal difference before Villa took on Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Luton stunned the home crowd by taking the lead within three minutes through Tahith Chong’s clinical finish. However, Tottenham responded swiftly after the interval, levelling the scores courtesy of an own goal from Issa Kaboré. Despite numerous chances for both sides, the match remained finely poised heading into the closing stages.

With time running out, Brennan Johnson’s shot appeared to have put Spurs ahead, but goal-line technology ruled it out. Undeterred, the hosts kept pushing and their perseverance paid off in the 86th minute when Son converted Johnson’s clever cut-back to claim all three points.

The victory extended Tottenham’s impressive home form to seven wins in eight English Premier League matches, while Luton’s winless run to 10 games. With the race for UCL places intensifying, this hard-earned triumph could prove pivotal for Postecoglou’s side.
