Tottenham fans delight at £22m man picked over struggling star

Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight as £22m man Son Heung-min joins Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen in attack over struggling star Nacer Chadli.

Chadli was unable to affect last week’s game, and has frustrated fans thus far, and looks to have lost his place in the side.

The South Korean has captured the imagination of fans since his big money move from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 3 goals in 3 games so far – including the winner against Crystal Palace last week.

One fan will be particularly happy by today’s team news….

Club record signing Erik Lamela gets another chance alongside the new Number 7, and will take on a defence lacking the presence of Vincent Kompany, who has dropped to the bench.

A front three likely to float behind the struggling Harry Kane, the emergence of Son has lightened the load of the England striker, and has fans purring at the prospect of more interplay with Eriksen, who set up his winner last week.
