'Has it in abundance': Alan Shearer says one Tottenham player is 'class' as he picks him in TOTW
Tottenham capped off an ideal start to the Premier League season with a 6-2 win over Leicester, with a Heung-Min Son hat-trick helping along the way.
Son was dropped to the bench by Antonio Conte but responded in the most perfect way. His 14 minute hat-trick put the Foxes to the sword and there was no question whatsoever what it meant to the South Korean.
Last season’s joint golden boot winner had looked a frustrated figure this season. Indeed, Son himself admitted after the game that he had been annoyed with some of his own performances, albeit keeping a confidence that the goals would come. And come they did.
Of course, Son impressed everyone and one man he caught the eye of was Alan Shearer. And picking his team of the week for the Premier League’s official website, Shearer lauded Son for his permanent class.
“Class is permanent, and Son has it in abundance. What a 14-minute hat-trick,” Shearer wrote on the Spurs man.
Shearer was not the only pundit and ex-player to shower Son with praise either. Tim Sherwood labelled him a ‘manager’s dream’ and insisted that he’d get into any team in the world. Certainly, Son proved a massive point this weekend.
TBR’s View: Son World Class Once More
Shearer is right using the old adage of class is permanent and Heung-Min Son showed everyone just how good he is this weekend.
It was the sort of blistering performance we’ve become accustomed too from the forward and he was at his brilliant best to put Leicester to the sword. For so long, the Foxes looked like they might take something from the game but Son simply did his thing and it was game over.
For the rest of the league, Son’s return to form is a worry and Tottenham look like genuine contenders as things stand right now.
