TOTTENHAM star Son Heung-Min escaped a red card after a horror tackle on Fulham’s Kenny Tete.

But fans were less than impressed with the “unbelievable” decision in Monday night’s Premier League battle.

The London rivals squared off at Craven Cottage with just two points separating them before kick-off.

But a tense start saw both sides struggle to break the deadlock.

South Korea ace Son looked particularly frustrated as his underwhelming season continued.

And the Spurs forward made a hash of one challenge in the 28th minute as he clattered into Fulham defender Tete during a 50/50.

Son missed the ball completely as he stuck a leg out, instead catching his Dutch opponent on the ankle.

Son’s slide saw him continue to crunch down on Tete’s leg as both men became tangled up.

But while Fulham players rushed the referee in the hopes of seeing a red card, Son was instead only shown a yellow.

VAR then took a look at the incident before agreeing with the ref’s initial booking.


But supporters watching on TV were left fuming with the tackle as one declared: “100 per cent a red card there for Son, unbelievable it wasn’t given.”

Another said: “How Son got away without a red is laughable.”

One gasped: “How’s Son not see red for that challenge on Tete?!”

Another added: “Are the officials waiting for someone to get seriously hurt to take action?”

The decision certainly came back to haunt Fulham, with Son assisting Harry Kane’s opener on the stroke of half-time.
