An uneasy one-goal difference. Tottenham pulled out a weapon to deliver a critical blow to their opponent. Heung-Min Son. In the 23rd minute of the second half, Son Heung-min replaced Richarlison.

Maybe he wasn’t happy with Son Heung-min, who was holding back his team. Some West Ham fans expressed it the wrong way. Racial discrimination against Son Heung-min. The fans belittled Son Heung-min and Korea, such as “a child who eats dog meat” and “a country that eats dog meat”.
This is not the first time West Ham fans have been racist towards Son Heung-min. While returning home in 2017, a man asked Son Heung-min, who was doing fan service, “Can you get me a copy of the movie Escape from the Planet?” It was a word from a narrow-minded perspective that Asians sell pirated DVDs.
Son Heung-min, who recognized that he was a racist remark, did not respond. Then the man said, “Isn’t it selling DVDs?” “I am a West Ham fan. You are really unlucky.”
Tottenham immediately responded to this racial discrimination. Through the official social network service (SNS), the club strongly said, “We recognized the embarrassing racism towards Son Heung-min,” and “We stand on the side of Son Heung-min and once again urge the SNS company and the relevant authorities to take action.”
