Will Heung-Min Son be axed for Tottenham v Crystal Palace?

Tottenham travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday evening for a Premier League tie and manager Mauricio Pocehttino has the rare scenario of having all of his senior attacking options available to him.

Spurs are fresh off the back of a dramatic 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League group stages and will now be looking to ensure they stay in the top four of the league before the international break.

There is serious competition for places in the starting XI and it’s unclear on who Pochettino will select to play behind star centre-forward Harry Kane.

Heung-Min Son got the nod to start in the win over PSV, but he could well be in the firing line to be dropped against Palace.

 

The 26-year-old winger was below par as he threatened to seriously threaten the goal and the stiff competition within the squad means players can rarely afford a drop off the pace.

Brazilian wide man Lucas Moura dazzled throughout the game and it’s hard to imagine Pochettino dropping him at the weekend, while in-form Erik Lamela came off the bench and has been a regular in the starting XI in league matches.

Son has turned out to be a brilliant £22million signing (BBC) since he joined from Bayer Leverkusen, but will need to raise his game if he is to keep his spot in the team.
