‘I fancy him’: Sky pundit says Antonio Conte has to start Tottenham Hotspur player every week no matter what

Paul Merson has previewed the latest round of Premier League matches for SportsKeeda, including Tottenham Hotspur’s next match.

Spurs take on Leicester City on Saturday, with both sides looking to both bounce from defeats in their last game.

Tottenham are still unbeaten in the league however, and could move to the top of the Premier League with a win.

Paul Merson was the latest pundit to give his opinion on Son Heung-min.

The Sky Sports pundit believes that Son still needs to start for Tottenham, despite his poor start to the season.

“Son Heung-min’s form has been a cause for concern, but I fancy him to return to his best.” Merson said.

“The cream always rises to the top, which is why I believe Antonio Conte needs to continue starting him every week.”

Son needs to start for Tottenham every week

It’s not been an easy start to the season for Son.

The South Korean international hasn’t scored since the final day of last season against Norwich.

His brace in that match helped him earn the Golden Boot, sharing the honour with Mohamed Salah.

Antonio Conte has previously said that Son is ‘top class’, and has had faith in Son so far this season.

The form of Dejan Kulusevski and new signing Richarlison might make it difficult to justify picking Son every week.

Kulusevski could become a ‘world class’ player one day, and has been so consistent since arriving from Juventus.

Richarlison appears to be a serious big-game player for Tottenham, and netted a brace on his Champions League debut.

Merson believe that Conte needs to keep starting Son for Tottenham despite all this.

However, if he doesn’t start getting back to his best soon, Conte will have no choice but to drop him.
