Jack Grealish lauds Spurs star Son Heung-min during Everton defeat

Jack Grealish took to Instagram during Tottenham Hotspur’s incredible FA Cup tie with Everton to label Son Heung-min’s crossing an ‘absolute scandal’.

It was also his pass that found its way to Erik Lamela for the visitors’ second. And Son’s corner led to Sanchez getting his second of the night shortly after the break.

But the moment of particularly outrageous quality came for Tottenham’s fourth. After collecting the ball on the edge of the Toffees’ box, Son – who earns £140,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – drove to the byline before lifting a delicious cross to the back post.

And it was that cross that prompted Grealish to take to social media. The Aston Villa talisman seemed to be in doubt regarding which Tottenham player deserved the most credit.

Here is what Grealish posted…
