With four goals and four assists in seven league games in December, Heung-min is up against Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Mateusz Cunha (Wolverhampton), Mohamed Kudus (West Ham United), Michael Oliseh (Crystal Palace), Cole Palmer (Chelsea), Marcos Senesi and Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth) for the Player of the Month award.
Son has the most offensive points among the eight nominees.
Since the Player of the Month is determined by fan and expert voting, he has a leg up.
Bournemouth’s Senesi and Solanke are also strong contenders.
They have been key to Bournemouth’s four wins in six games in December.
Striker Solanke scored six goals in the month, while defender Senesi scored two goals and provided one assist while keeping three clean sheets.
However, Bournemouth supporters could be split on their votes, giving Son a slight advantage.
