Tottenham Hotspur have been given a major boost ahead of their FA Cup fourth-round tie with Brighton & Hove Albion. News has come through that their South Korean star Son Heung-min is back in training after injury and is in line to play in the cup match.
This news brought a smile to manager’s Antonio Conte face as he announced that for the first time since he took over, he has a squad that is close to full strength. This has now created another dilemma, however, as to which is his strongest 11.
The South Korean forward has been one of the club’s most influential players since he joined. Son joined the club in 2015 and quickly became a fan favorite due to his mesmeric performances. The club underlined Son’s value to them by extending his contract to 2025. Part of the reason why this was done was to ward off any potential suitors, as there is always a rumor linking a player of his caliber with a possible move.
Son is seen as a key component of Tottenham’s attack as he can play numerous positions without sacrificing any quality. He is blessed with genuine pace and loves roaming in the open spaces. In the absence of Harry Kane, he handled the striker’s role with aplomb, and when Kane returned, he formed a deadly partnership with the England man.
His partnership with Kane has made Tottenham one of the highest-scoring Premier League teams in recent times. The South Korean star loves the striker role and has scored many crucial goals for the club. He has a habit of scoring spectacular goals that regularly feature among the goals of the season.
