Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-min struck late on to secure a 2-1 Premier League victory over Luton Town to bolster his side’s top-four ambitions on Saturday.

Son started and finished a flowing Tottenham move in the 86th minute to leave relegation battlers Luton with nothing to show from a spirited display in north London.

Tahith Chong gave Luton a surprise early lead with Son being denied by the woodwork soon afterwards. Tottenham equalised in the 51st minute when Issa Kabore scored an own goal and the hosts’ pressure was eventually rewarded with Son’s clincher.

Tottenham moved into fourth place with 56 points, ahead of Aston Villa on goals scored although Villa were in action later at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Luton slipped back below Nottingham Forest into the relegation zone.

It's all over in north London, as Spurs come back from 1-0 down to defeat Luton 2-1 late on, thanks to a timely strike from their captain Son Heung-Min! Despite Luton pressing for an early goal to match Chong's strike in the first half, it was Spurs who got themselves level just six minutes into the second period. Vicario saved Barkley's shot at one end, and within just seconds, Johnson's enticing cross from the right was unfortunately turned into his own net by Kabore! Spurs continued to press for a winner through Son, Werner, Porro and Johnson, while Clark went closest for Luton at the other end. All would be denied by Kaminski and Vicario in the respective nets, but the hosts rallied again with just four minutes left on the clock. Werner's cross was steered into Son's path by Johnson, and the Tottenham captain rifled home the winner to spark pandemonium in the stands. The hosts held on to secure a 2-1 victory which returns them to the winners' circle, while Luton's wait for three points in the Premier League extends beyond the two-month mark. Spurs are back in fourth - for now - while Luton's late defeat sees them drop back into the relegation zone as the final home straight of the season begins.

FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 2-1 LUTON TOWN.

CHANCE!!! Townsend's clever reverse pass finds Kabore on a continuing run down the right, but the full-back's cross into a crowded Spurs box can't be turned home as both Clark and Mpanzu are closed down and dispossessed!

16:58

CHANCE!!! Mengi's awful clearance ricochets off Lo Celso and bounces straight into the path of Richarlison. He goes down in the box having appeared to be fouled by the defender, but Mengi - already on a yellow card - gets away with it!

16:57

Bentancur's clever flick allows an advanced Hojbjerg to play Werner into the box, but the forward's shot from a tight angle is flashed behind for a goal-kick!

16:54

Townsend snatches at a 25-yard shot against his former club which Romero gets in the way of, and Kabore's cross on the follow-up is a poor one, sailing behind and into the side netting!

36 per cent of Luton’s points in the Premier League this season have come from goals in the final 10 minutes (eight of 22), more than any other side. Indeed, only Liverpool (17) and Arsenal (14) have more goals in that period in 2023-24 than the Hatters' 12. Could it be another one of those days?

16:44

OVER!!! The hosts win a free-kick on the left-hand side of the box, and Porro steps up to strike it. He's got crossing options aplenty, but chooses to shoot and curls a well-struck effort just over the top!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:43

OFF THE LINE!!! Spurs were centimetres away from taking the lead there!!! Dragusin drives forward up the left flank and links up with Werner, who plays a one-two with Bentancur. The Uruguayan's cutback is struck goalwards by Johnson from close range, but the shot hits Kaminski's left arm and rolls along the goal-line before being hacked clear by Doughty!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:40

Tottenham full-back Porro has had the most shots (37) and accumulated the highest xG (2.2) of any player yet to score in the Premier League this season, and has unsuccessfully added 0.11 to that total with two wayward attempts in this game!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:37

Clark drifts over from right to left and plays a one-two with Chong before crossing, but the offside flag is raised to penalise him just as Vicario collects the aerial ball.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:36

OVER!!! Bentancur finds Johnson running in behind Doughty, and the Spurs winger stands up his Luton counterpart before teeing up Porro. The full-back arrives onto the ball and shoots first-time, but is leaning back as he does so and puts it over the bar!!

Substitution Tahith Jose Girigorio Djorkaef Chong Wilfred Oluwafemi Onyedinma

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:33

CHANCE!!! Bentancur's first-time cross into the Luton box is really threatening, with both Son and Werner attacking it. The latter heads back across the face, but no-one can make much of it until Johnson wins a corner!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:30

Porro makes a smart run in behind the Hatters' defence and is found by Sarr, but his square ball towards Werner is cut out by Kabore on the edge of the box.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:29

SAVED!!! Townsend wins and takes a Luton corner on the right-hand side, which is met and punched away by Tottenham goalkeeper Vicario. It lands at the feet of the substitute Clark, who fizzes a low half-volley towards the bottom corner and forces Vicario into a last-ditch save!!

Kaminski has stayed down in the goalmouth after colliding with his own post in keeping out a dipping cross from Porro, but gets back to his feet with Luton readying their latest substitute.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:26

CHANCE!!! Porro and Sarr combine to play in Johnson down the right, and the substitute's latest cross causes further trouble for Luton. Werner closes in, but Kabore slides in once more to deny him!

Tottenham have now scored 15 goals in the first 15 minutes of their second halves this season, more than any other Premier League side. Response.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:23

Johnson has shooting space on the edge of the box and tries his luck from 20 yards, but a series of deflections takes all power out of the shot and it's an easy one for Berry to eventually clear.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:21

SAVED!!! Porro surges onto the ball and finds Son in the box with a perfectly-placed low cross, but the Spurs captain's first-time effort is saved brilliantly by Kaminski from close range!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:20

Maddison's attempted shot ricochets into the path of Sarr, but Kaminski dives onto the loose ball before the offside flag is rasied!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:19

CHANCE!!! Kabore avoids a second successive own goal!! Lovely one-touch play between Son, Maddison and Porro sends the latter in behind the Luton defence, and his cross from the byline is thumped away from danger by Kabore facing his own net!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:17

There's a quick check for offside from Porro's initial ball to Johnson, but the Welshman's run is given the all clear by VAR and the goal stands!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:15

SAVED!!! Doughty tees up Barkley on the edge of the area and the midfielder fires a low shot through the crowd. It's creeping in too, but Vicario gets down low to his left and tips the ball away from danger, despite seeing it very late indeed!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:14

Maddison beats two on his way into the Luton box before being dispossessed timely by Doughty, and Barkley combines with Hashioka as the visitors play their way out of defence!

Tottenham have a record of three losses and two wins and draws when trailing at half-time in the Premier League this season, and need to turn that patchy form around if they're to keep pace in the fight for a top four place!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

16:07

We're back for the second half, and Spurs have it all to do as Morris kicks off for leaders Luton!

Chong's goal remains the difference thus far, coming in the third minute with his only attempt of the first half. The Dutch forward has also completed one final-third pass and been successful in all six of his duels, turning possession over four times and winning four free-kicks in the process with the Hatters striving to keep the ball as best they can, under wave after wave of pressure from the home side.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:59

It's the visitors who lead 1-0 at the break, with Luton silencing the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium inside the opening 150 seconds! Chong's early strike finished off a well-worked move which former Spurs winger Townsend played a key part in, and remains the difference going into half-time. You'd be forgiven for forgetting the Hatters had even scored though, given how one-sided the rest of the half was in Tottenham's favour. Werner shot wide from right in front, and a crazy sequence just minutes later saw Son hit both posts before Sarr and Werner were both denied by goal-saving blocks. Porro was called into action at the other end to prevent Doughty volleying in Luton's second, but other than that it's been one-way traffic towards Kaminski's goal. Spurs still have it all to do in the second half though, and the Hatters' won't be giving up their crucial 1-0 lead without a fight.

15:53

HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-1 LUTON TOWN.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:53

CHANCE!!! The hosts counter looking for a late response right on half-time, as Maddison and Son combine to find Werner on the left. He cuts inside before squaring to Son, but the striker's first-time shot is cut out and cleared away by Mengi!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:50

Luton win a late free-kick which is whipped into the box at speed by Doughty, and a deflection off Romero gives the visitors a corner in the shadows of half-time.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:49

We'll play three added minutes to close out what's been a hugely frustrating first half in front of goal for the home side. Less so for the visitors!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:48

Berry meets Doughty's delivery from the set-piece with a powerful looping header, but can't get the direction right and sends his effort wide of the near post!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:48

BLOCKED!!! Townsend plays a one-two with Berry from a Hatters' throw-in and whips a pinpoint cross towards the far post. It falls for Doughty, whose left-footed volley is on target before being blocked behind for a corner off Porro!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:47

Chong looks to cut inside and set off on the break for Luton over halfway, but he's cut down from behind by Bissouma in a poor challenge reminiscient of the one which saw him sent off for two yellow cards at Kenilworth Road.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:45

Luton have won five, drawn one and lost three of the games they've been 1-0 up in at any point this season, the most recent of which saw them lose 4-3 to Bournemouth despite being 3-0 up away from home!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:44

Son has a pop at goal with an left-footed strike from the edge of the area, but it's blocked easily enough by Chong and loops wide of the target for a corner!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:41

Sarr plays in Son as the Spurs captain makes a run into the box, but he can't bring the ball under control after being crowded out, and Kaminski collects for Luton!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:38

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 10 league games against Luton, and are looking to complete their first league double over the Hatters since 1983-84.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:37

Spurs have options queuing up on the edge of the box as Son, Maddison and Werner all refrain from shooting, but the latter's square pass for Bissouma is intercepted by Berry!

Yellow Card Reece Frederick James Burke

15:32

Only two of Maddison’s 11 Premier League goal involvements this season for Tottenham have come at home. Against newly promoted sides he’s been involved in 19 goals in his last 16 games in the top-flight (nine goals, 10 assists), setting up the winner in the reverse fixture at Kenilworth Road.

15:31

Maddison tees Udogie up to cross from the left-hand side, but his floated ball across the face isn't turned home by any team-mates in the vicinity!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:31

Dragusin intercepts a Kabore pass to spring a Spurs counter-attack, finding Son who turns and runs forward over halfway. With Kabore out of position the South Korean looks for Werner to his left, but overhits his pass and sends it behind for a goal-kick!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:29

Chong drops deep to assist Doughty and does his best to get away from Porro, but is eventually pulled to the floor by the Tottenham right-back and wins a free-kick on halfway.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:27

CHANCE!!! Sarr makes another darting run forwards to get on the end of Dragusin's long pass and beats Mpanzu to fire in a cross, but no-one in white can get on the end of his ball in as it flashes across the face of goal!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:26

Tottenham have won nine of their last 10 Premier League games against newly promoted sides, with their only defeat coming at home against Bournemouth in April last season. At home, Spurs have scored in each of their last 40 such games since a 1-0 loss to Wolves in December 2009.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:24

OFF THE WOODWORK!!! The entire stadium is wondering just how Spurs didn't score there!! Luton are caught short in midfield and Son bursts clear of the defence to round Kaminski in the box. He shoots, but the ball bounces off both posts and back out again, before successive follow-up shots from Werner and Sarr are blocked on the line!!! Panic stations at the back for Luton, who somehow preserve their 1-0 lead!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:23

Spurs are straight onto the attack after dealing with Doughty's corner and Werner is played into space down the left. He looks to cross into the middle from the edge of the box, but Kabore slides in with a perfectly-timed tackle to scythe the ball out of play!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:21

Doughty floats a long-range Luton free-kick into the box, which is half-cleared by Spurs before Burke recovers it. He plays a one-two with Townsend and fires a cutback towards Morris from the byline, but Maddison's intervention sees the ball go behind for a corner!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:19

WIDE!!! How are Spurs not level?? Attacking quickly on the break, Maddison's cross-field ball over the top is brought down at speed by Werner. He cuts inside, then back out to beat Kabore before shooting, but drills his low shot across the face of goal and agonisingly wide of the far post!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:18

Since beating Brighton 4-0 in January, Luton are without a win in their last eight league matches. Away from home they’ve conceded at least four times in three of their last four games and four times overall – the last side to do so more times in a Premier League season was Manchester United with five in 2021-22.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:15

Son drifts wide to play Kulusevski in behind the Luton defence, but his cutback from the byline takes a series of deflections before beihn put behind for a corner by Townsend!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:11

Luton have won just one of their 16 top-flight away games against Tottenham, beating them 3-1 in November 1985. Their last such visit was a 4-1 defeat in November 1991, with Scott Houghton and Gary Lineker each netting a brace for Spurs.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:11

Kulusevski and Kaminski collide as the pair chase down a throughball into the Spurs winger's feet, and it appears that the Luton goalkeeper caught some stray studs in the thigh as he collected that dangerous pass.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:09

WIDE!!! Son and Werner combine down the left as the latter hangs up a cross from the byline. Sarr arrives at the far post to head goalwards, but can only put his effort wide of the target!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

15:08

Luton have now scored in their last 18 English Premier League games, and it's the third time this season that Chong has put the Hatters 1-0 up!

14:58

Luke Berry’s late equaliser last time out for Luton sees him rewarded with a start in midfield, playing on the right-hand side with another new face in Andros Townsend ahead of him. Jordan Clark drops to the bench while Chiedozie Ogbene is absent altogether, and Carlton Morris leads the line as well as captaining the Hatters in north London.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

14:53

Timo Werner starts on the left flank in Spurs’ only change from their 3-0 loss at Fulham, having scored in back-to-back matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa beforehand. Johnson is joined on the bench by Micky van de Ven, who has returned from injury and scored the only goal in Tottenham’s 1-0 win at Kenilworth Road last October.

Nottingham Forest’s points deduction for financial fair play breaches has seen them drop below Luton into the final relegation place, but the Hatters are still just one point clear of the trapdoor coming into this game. Rob Edwards’ side haven’t won since the end of January and only secured a draw with Forest in their last match thanks to Luke Berry’s 89th minute equaliser, but having been unlucky to not get anything out of their 1-0 defeat to Spurs in the reverse fixture, Luton might just have the confidence to secure a first league victory in two months here.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Luton Town

14:44

Spurs return from the international break with 10 games of the season to go, and the race to secure a Champions League place hotting up as a result. Having thumped an Aston Villa side directly above them 4-0 away from home, Ange Postecoglou’s side then wilted with a demoralising 3-0 defeat at Fulham in their last match. Only three points separate Villa and Spurs coming into this weekend, with the latter able to go fourth on goal difference should all results go their way.
