Heung-Min Son hasn’t enjoyed the blistering start to the season that he may have wanted, but the Tottenham attacker will come good and fans will hope that is after the international break.
The 27-year-old failed to score in his two Premier League appearances so far this campaign, as well as failing to get on the scoresheet during two international fixtures with South Korea.
He’s an elite striker that has proven himself for a number of years in North London and also fired his side all the way to the Champions League final last season.
His slow beginning to the campaign is hardly ideal, but history proves that he always takes time to hit top gear and it doesn’t help that he was suspended for the opening two league games too.
Son managed 20 goals across all competitions last season, but his first Spurs goal didn’t come until the end of October in the cup.
The centre-forward was also slow to get going in the 2017/18 campaign, where he didn’t score until his fifth game of the season.
He’s such a gifted finisher off either foot that it’s hard to keep him quiet for too long and his quality will shine through.
Despite Harry Kane being marked as the club’s talisman, Son is such an influential figure in the final third and trusted by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs paid £22million (BBC) for the South Korean back in 2015 and that’s turned out to be a real bargain.
He will rediscover his best form and upcoming opponents Crystal Palace are a team he likes playing, having scored three goals in three separate home games against them over the years.
