Spurs stars Son and Lloris separated by team-mates in stunning bust-up on half-time whistle
TOTTENHAM team-mates Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min were involved in an extraordinary on-pitch bust-up.
The Spurs players had to be separated by Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso after cameras caught them pushing each other at the end of the first half against Everton.
Jose Mourinho's men were winning 1-0 thanks to a Michael Keane own goal in the 24th minute.
But there were no celebrations when the whistle went after 45 minutes as captain Lloris and Son went at each other.
The fracas appeared to stem from Son not tracking back when a pass to him was intercepted by Yerry Mina – setting up a Richarlison chance.
Commentator Gary Neville said: "They should have showed that much passion on the pitch."
Tempers settled down before the second-half though as Lloris and Son were shown hugging in the tunnel.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp said: "He [Son] gives up, he absolutely gives up on it.
"There's a reaction as Lloris then shouts at Son – this is probably the most exciting thing that's happened in the first half.
"But that actually might be a consequence of what happened in the Sheffield United game when he didn't make a challenge.
"Lloris runs up to him, he pushes Lo Celso in the way almost.
"I've been involved with this before – Steve McManaman and Bruce Grobbelaar.
"In a way, at least it shows they care because against Sheffield United they didn't, there wasn't enough of that.
"You've got to have that sometimes – it's not the first time it's happened in football and it won't be the last.

"You want to see players showing a bit of passion.
"It was too easy – he's got to get back and help his team out and he didn't.
"Sometimes you've got to let people know!"
