Just before half time with the score tied at 1-1, Son took a penalty. His initial shot was deflected off the goalkeeper’s hands, but Son leaped on the rebound and scored.

In second-half stoppage time, Son pounced when an Aston Villa defender lost control of the ball, dashing towards it and finding the net with a clean right-footed shot.
