PRESTON, England (Reuters) – Tottenham Hotspur’s Heung-Min Son returned to form with two goals in a 3-0 win over Second Division side Preston North End in the FA Cup fourth round. Arnault Danjuma also scored on his debut against Deepdale on Saturday. .

South Korea’s Son Heung-min endured a sluggish season, but scored two goals after the first half to take the lead and the visitors easily progressed to the next round.

Five minutes after the start of the second half, Son Heung-min got the ball outside the penalty area and threw an unstoppable shot into the corner of the goal.

It was his second goal since mid-October, but after 19 minutes he turned smoothly at the edge of the box and shot past Preston goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.

Aside from a brief spell between Tottenham goals, Preston seldom bothered the away side who didn’t even have to take top scorer Harry Kane off the bench.

Dutch forward Danjuma, who joined Spurs on loan from Spanish club Villarreal this week, came off the bench and scored his side’s third goal at close range in the closing minutes.
