Tottenham Hotspur are considering an appeal against the red card Son Heung-min received against Bournemouth, according to the Daily Mail.

Son was sent off five minutes before half-time for shoving Jefferson Lerma to the ground as Spurs fell to a 1-0 defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

Footage appeared to show Son was provoked by Lerma, who seemed to punch the Korean in the back which brought on the retaliation.

As a result, the Mail claims Tottenham could appeal against the dismissal in a bid to have Son available on the final day against Everton.

The Londoners have until midday on Tuesday to make their decision.

Half-time substitute Juan Foyth was also sent off at Bournemouth, lasting only moments before seeing red for a high tackle.

It’s unlikely Spurs will consider an appeal against the Argentinian’s dismissal due to the nature of the tackle.

Thankfully, Tottenham look set to clinch the fourth Champions League spot regardless of the final day results – Arsenal need an eight-goal swing to finish above their fierce rivals.

But still, it would be nice to have Son back to make things a little easier.

Plus there is the small matter of leapfrogging Chelsea into third place.



  1. Referee should be red carded! Son was floored in earlier incident yet Pawson did not even give a foul let alone a yellow card. When Son pushed filthy Lemar to the ground, was Lemar hurt? Only acting!
    And comparing penulty Anthony Taylor gave to Arsenal to the blatant two handed shoving of Son to the ground which Taylor refused to punish, only confirmed referees bias against Spurs!
    I have given up hope on Spurs winning the League unless massive overhaul of officials!

  2. Well said mate and while we are on the subject how come liverpool player wasn’t sent off Sunday…..for handball on the line ….I know Newcastle score from the rebound of him …..but the letter of the law states a straight red ….. how much have they had go there way this season by the way ? Gifted goal from us and Everton plus penalties galore from very soft challenges…..Fulham for example….hurry up VAR get rid of the cheating …..coys
