Robbie Savage has raved about the quality of Tottenham attacker Heung-Min Son and believes he’s played a huge role this season.
The 26-year-old has developed into one of Mauricio Pochettino’s key men in recent years and become a regular goal threat.
He’s made 37 Spurs appearances across all competitions this campaign, scoring 16 goals and supplying nine assists in return.
The South Korea international was the driving force during the winter period, when both Harry Kane and Dele Alli had their injury problems.
BT Sport pundit Savage has hailed the influence of Son and also named him as the sixth best player in the Premier League this campaign.
“And Son’s fantastic work ethic kept Tottenham’s season afloat while Kane and Dele Alli were injured,” Savage wrote in the Mirror.
“When they needed him, he even flew home from the Asian Cup and went straight into the team, virtually jet-lagged, to help Spurs stay in the top three.”
Son really has stepped up to become an integral player and is one of the most underrated players in English football.
The versatile attacker has the intelligence to play in either central or wide positions and continue to make his impact on matches.
Son has had a slight drop off in recent weeks probably due to the heavy workload, but he will be one of the players Spurs look to when they face Manchester City over a two-legged Champions League quarter-final too.
English pair Kane and Alli quite often take the headlines for their contributions, but Son is usually right up there with them making the difference.
