Panic quickly spread throughout the Spurs community when today’s lineup dropped and Son Heung-Min, the only player in the history of the sport to score a goal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, was on the bench.
How would anyone score with Son not on the field? Well, it turns out that other players can in fact find the back of the net at the new stadium. Two players, in fact.
Midway through the first half against Huddersfield Town, Victor Wanyama and Lucas Moura scored back-to-back goals to make it 2-0.

Wanyama got the scoring barrage started with his first goal of the season, with some help from a nice dummy from Fernando Llorente.
Two minutes later, the Brazilian doubled the lead with a smashing finish.

No Kane? No Son? No Dele? No problem, apparently.
