Tottenham’s Son Heung-min has won the Premier League’s Goal of the Month award for November for his stunning solo effort against Chelsea.
Collecting the ball just inside the Chelsea half, Son sprinted down the right wing, outpacing Jorginho before cutting into the box, beating David Luiz, and then calmly finishing past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
It was Son’s first Premier League goal of the season and it gave Tottenham a 3-0 lead in a match they went on to win 3-1, bringing an end to Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the campaign.

“One of the best goals in my career because it was a London derby, a big game,” Son told the Premier League website after receiving his award from Carling.
“I was so excited to play Chelsea and score such a beautiful goal.”
Son Heung-Min is the first Asian player to win the award, which has been handed out every month since the start of the 2016/17 season.
