Tottenham pair Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min had to be seperated by teammates after they were involved in an ugly bust-up during their 1-0 slim win over Everton on Tuesday night, July 6.
A first half own goal by Micahel Keane is all Tottenham needed to bag three crucial points at home.
But the match was not short of drama as cameras caught Son and Lloris shouting and pushing each other at half-time of the league meeting.

It took the intervention of team-mates Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Giovani Lo Celso to separate the pair and ultimately calm the situation.

However, rather than criticise his wards, Jose Mourinho sensationally claimed the bust-up was "beautiful."
"That's beautiful. It's probably a consequence of our meetings and if you want to blame somebody for that it's me, because I was critical of my boys for not being critical enough of themselves with each other," Mourinho was quoted saying after the match.
"I asked to be more demanding, to demand more from others, to put their colleagues under pressure, to give everything for every body," he continued.

Thankfully, the duo seemed to have made up shortly before the second-half though as they were shown hugging in the tunnel.
