No Harry Kane? No Problem!
This is the mantra by which Tottenham Hotspur are winning games one after another. While both Kane, as well as Dele Alli, are sidelined with injuries, their knight in shining armour has been the shy Son Heung-Min. Having gained Pochettino’s trust, the wily forward’s winning games on his own.
The Korean’s been on song throughout the season and been elevated after being handed bigger responsibilities. Son’s thrived under pressure and having adapted into the Premier League conditions, he’s made Wembley his own playground. His last-minute goal to seal another win for Spurs on Sunday was his third in a row.
He’s almost getting better with each goal, having led the line for Spurs valiantly in recent games. Son’s scored 11 goals in 20 appearances this season is only 3 behind his career-best for Spurs. Not only does he look set to break his personal record, but Son also seems determined at breaking Harry Kane’s domination over Spurs goal-scoring charts as well.
He’s formed irresistible chemistry with his front-men. Son’s link-up play with Alli, Kane and even Christian Eriksen has been top notch as he knows exactly where they’ll be in the final third, while they know when he’ll make those darting runs forward.
With 5 assists so far, Son’s proving to be a team player who puts personal ambitions aside. Son’s only ambition is seemingly to win games and repay his faithful manager, who struck gold once he brought in the terrorizing forward four years ago.
Pochettino’s record when it comes to buying attackers may be patchy and, while Dele Alli may run him close, it’s hard to argue against the former Bayern Leverkusen forward being the best Tottenham signing since this era dawned.
