Pundit would take Tottenham Hotspur star Son over Alexis Sanchez

Football pundit Chris Sutton has claimed that he would rather have Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min in his side than Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez.

Many felt that Sanchez was the signing of the winter window when the Chile international made a surprise move to Old Trafford from Arsenal.

However, the 29-year-old has failed to make an instant impact at the North-West outfit having scored just one goal in nine appearances in all competitions.

The former Barcelona star is also yet to create an assist, but his rival Son is flying high at the moment, much to the delight of the Tottenham supporters.

The South Korean international has scored 18 goals and produced nine others in 43 appearances in all competitions.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old was the star of the show as he netted twice to help Spurs come from 1-0 down to earn a 4-2 triumph.

The forward’s form has got former Chelsea striker Sutton comparing him with Sanchez.

While speaking to BBC 606 on BBC Radio Five Live, the 45-year-old said:

“What a fantastic all-round player Son is. He’s got a great work ethic and he’s versatile. To have that option up top and for him to perform at the level he has done all season, he’s been sensational. Everybody’s been banging on about Sanchez going to Manchester United but I’d have Son every day of the week instead of Sanchez.”
