‘Good game for him’: Chris Sutton backs Tottenham man to score his first goal of the season against Leicester City

BBC pundit Chris Sutton has backed Tottenham Hotspur winger Heung-Min Son to score his first goal of the season against Leicester City this weekend. 

Spurs host the Foxes on Saturday after a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday evening. 

Antonio Conte’s men fell apart in the final minutes of the game as they conceded two late goals. 

And it was yet another goalless return for Son, who has failed to score this season. 

The 30-year-old has struggled to hit the same heights he managed last season and has put in some underwhelming displays. 

But Sutton is backing Son to end his seven-game goal drought against Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Sutton backs Son to score first goal 

Writing in his latest column for the BBC, Sutton has backed Spurs to thrash Leicester 4-1

And the former Blackburn man says he is keeping Son in his Fantasy Premier League side this weekend. 

“Tottenham only suffered their first defeat of the season against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday but I have to say that I don’t think their performances have always been as good as their results in the past few weeks,” Sutton writes. 

“Spurs haven’t always clicked, which is something for their manager Antonio Conte to think about, but they should still make short work of Leicester even if they don’t play well this time too.

“The Foxes have got plenty of firepower themselves but their problem is clearly defensively – they always look like they are going to concede goals.

“I’ve kept Spurs striker Son Heung-min in my fantasy team because this looks like a good game for him to get off the mark this season – so it will be my fault if that doesn’t happen.”

Son will be hoping to be given another chance to impress by Antonio Conte on Saturday, with Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski both staking their claim to start. 

Leicester are yet to win a game this season and have looked leaky in defence. So it could be the ideal game for Son to get off the mark and kickstart his season.
