Tottenham Hotspur earned a comfortable 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday to boost their ambitions of finishing in the English Premier League top four.
The win puts them five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea ahead of the Blues’ hugely difficult away trip to Manchester City tomorrow afternoon.
The hero of the afternoon was undoubtedly Son Heung-min, who scored in each half to secure the victory and put himself into contention for a start against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League next week.
The Korean attacking midfielder is a fan favourite but has had to work hard for his first-team opportunities recently. Performances like the one on Saturday will no doubt go a long way to securing that spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven.
Is he a better option than the likes of Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura? Where does he stack up against other Premier League attackers?
With 15 goals and four assists this season, fans believe he’s up there with the best.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Imagine SON was English? They would've had the Queen Knight him. The most underrated player in the league & the best Asian I've seen the prem #THFC

I have a feeling Heung-Min Son may have just played himself into the starting XI against Juve on Wednesday night.

My daughter is confused as to why the hamster has had its name changed to Son Heung-Min. She will understand in time. #COYS

I’m a massive fan of Lamela but Son has to start on Wednesday. Need that extra bit of pace and width to run at defenders. Lamela and Lucas to come on as impact subs #COYS

Running out of the superlatives for Son, crazy to think he’s contributed a combined total of 24 goals and assists this season.

Son may be my favorite Spurs player he's a god damn legend #COYS
