Video: Tottenham's Heung-Min Son consoled by experienced Conte signing after being subbed
Tottenham continued their unbeaten start to the season with a win over Fulham this weekend but it was another frustrating day for Heung-Min Son.
The South Korean star has failed to build on his superb season last time out and is struggling to get among the goals quite so easily. Despite still contributing and being a key player for Antonio Conte, the Spurs star has been noticeably frustrated in recent weeks.
Indeed, with Richarlison now impressing and Dejan Kulusevski also doing well so far this season, there is a sense among some that Son might even have to make do with a place on the bench at some point, if his form doesn’t pick up.
Certainly, Son is looking a lonely figure at times but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got the support of his team. In a clip posted on Twitter (@spurswoo) of the Tottenham bench, experienced number two goalkeeper Fraser Forster can be seen heading straight over to console the despondent Son after he was taken off at the weekend.
As you can see, Son takes a seat on his own looking visibly annoyed at drawing another blank, only for Forster to instantly recognise he might need a pick up and make his way over to his teammate, with a pat on the knee for good luck.

Players like Fraser Forster will go under the radar among a cluster of big name and money signings, but they can sometimes be absolutely key for teams getting success.
This is a nice moment from Forster who clearly uses his experience to recognise a teammate might be feeling a bit down in the dumps.
Sure, Heung-Min Son is a superstar at Tottenham. But even the best players need a pick me up now and again and Forster was on hand here to help his teammate out with a minor but important gesture.
