Shearer has praised Son Heung-min after Tottenham win vs Leicester

Alan Shearer has praised Son Heung-min, labelling the Tottenham Hotspur star unplayable after his weekend performance earned the forward a spot in his Premier League team of the week.

Son is now just three goals away from catching Mohamed Salah at the top of the scoring charts. His 18th and 19th strikes of the campaign came on Sunday as Tottenham beat Leicester 3-1 in North London.

It was Harry Kane who broke the deadlock with a brilliant header. But Son made the points safe during the second-half.

His first goal was well-taken, but his second was absolutely outrageous. The South Korean managed to bend the ball into the top corner with his left foot.

Son’s all-round display was superb. According to Whoscored, he made four key passes – twice as many as any other player on the pitch. And Shearer has suggested that no team would have been able to cope with Son on Sunday.

“Unplayable. Directly involved in all three goals, scoring with two brilliant strikes. He has Mohamed Salah looking over his shoulder in the Golden Boot race,” he told the Premier League website.

Tottenham have a bit of work to do to finish fourth in the Premier League. But the battle for fourth is still in their hands as there is one North London derby still to be played.

Arsenal appear to have found their form once again. But Tottenham have got back to winning ways. And with players such as Son and Kane in their ranks, Spurs have the potential to hurt absolutely anyone.

Certainly, if the pair continue to keep scoring, Tottenham stand every chance of going ahead of Arsenal.

Conte has made no secret of his admiration for Son. And he is repaying that faith by doing all he can to push Spurs across the line.
