Hueng-min Son (aka the most loveable footballer in the Premier League) receieved a red card for pushing an opponent(!) in Tottenham's trip to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

The 26-year-old was fouled on the edge of the Spurs box, but reacted angrily towards Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma with what looked like a push to the chest of his opponent.

Referee Craig Pawson instantly brandished the red card to Son, causing plenty of angry and confused reaction on Twitter.

A very harsh sending off for Son in an opening 45 minutes of football that saw Eric Dier avoid a second yellow card despite a couple of tactical fouls.

Things went for bad to worse for Spurs when Juan Foyth (who had just been substituted on at half-time) joined Son for an early bath after just two minutes on the pitch.

The Argentine defender made a reckless foul that was met with a deserved red card to take Tottenham down to nine men.

At least Dier was subbed off at half-time to avoid what would've been an inevitable third sending off for the North London club.

Not ideal for a club hoping to secure a place in the Premier League's top four... but you can always rely on Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United to drop points.
