Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has joked that he subbed Son Heung-min against Arsenal to help him beat Mohamed Salah to the Golden Boot.Son threw a strop when he was hauled off during Thursday night's 3-0 crushing north London derby win over Arsenal.

He was not happy at having to come off having just scored to move within one goal of Liverpool star Salah at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.But Conte had one eye on Sunday's clash with Burnley and wanted to rest Son for what he reckons will be a "sporting war".

And he joked that taking him off also kept the forward hungry because it stopped him overtaking Salah's mark already!Conte said: "It was a strategy!

A strategy because in this way I push him on Sunday to try to score and not be relaxed and stay top scorer because now he has one goal less than Salah."No, I'm joking.
