Dier struck his first league goal since December 2015 after 66 minutes to set Spurs on their way before South Korean international Son sealed the win 11 minutes later.

The crucial victory came on what had looked as if it might be a miserable afternoon for the Londoners after they lost midfielder Harry Winks to what appeared a serious ankle injury.
