Leading British newspapers are giving Son a thumbs-up to Tottenham Hotspur’s performance every day. He also praised Son again this time, shedding light on his outstanding performance.

British media outlet BBC revealed Lee Ju-ju’s team on Monday (Korea time). Former English Premier League striker Garth Crooks (66) selected Son as his left-handed counterpart and said, “Son Heung-min is the only steady player at Tottenham. Tottenham would have sunk in without Son.”

Crooks is a striker who has played for Tottenham in more than 100 games as a player. He has recently made a commitment to his former team’s performance. “Tottenham had a terrible game (0-3 loss) against Fulham before the A-match period. He played very hard in the match against Luton Town. What happened to the team that blew away Aston Villa (4-0 win)?”
I think Son’s performance was as good as his. “I am angry at Tottenham’s jagged performance,” Crooks said. “Fortunately, Son has been steady at Tottenham these days. Without him, Tottenham would have sunk.”

Crooks is hoping Tottenham will defeat its traditional rival. “All eyes are on April 28. Tottenham will desperately try to prevent Arsenal from winning,” Crooks said. “There are so many things that we can do with inconsistent Tottenham.” Arsenal are currently in the race for the leadership of the Premier League. Tottenham is aiming to advance to the fourth place by ranking fifth. It is desperate to advance to the UEFA Champions League in the 2024-2025 season.

Perhaps Crooks is also looking forward to Son’s strong performance in the match against Arsenal. Son scored multiple goals in his first showdown with Arsenal in the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season. Tottenham responded with Son’s equalizer when Arsenal scored. Thanks to Son’s excellent sense of goal, Tottenham won one valuable point in the away match against Arsenal.

In the match against Luton, Son shined at a critical moment. Tottenham and Luton were tied 1-1. In the 41st minute of the second half, Son scored a counterattack and scored with a simple right footed shot to split the net. After scoring the goal, Son was replaced by midfielder Pierre-Emile Hoibier (29). Tottenham secured a one-goal lead and secured three points.

Already, the British BBC has shed light on Son’s performance this season several times. In the 28th round, Son was also included in the Juju team. Back then, the BBC selected Son as a striker on the right side in the 3-4-3 formation.

The match between Tottenham and Villa on Thursday was a watershed moment in their fight for the top four teams. Tottenham won a landslide 4-0 victory at an away match against Villa. Son scored three offensive points to become the biggest contributor to Tottenham’s victory.

Having had a tough time with Villa in the first half, Tottenham scored in the second half in a row. Son Heung-min’s toes were shining. With James Madison (26) leading the game with an additional goal, Tottenham widened the gap by two goals thanks to Johnson’s additional goal. Son scored an exquisite pass to help Johnson score the goal.
Son Heung-min dominated the match against Villa. In the second half, Son scored his 14th Premier League goal in the 2023-2024 season by shooting a strong right foot. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez threw himself, but it was not enough to block him. Moreover, Son even helped Timo Werner (27) score the goal three minutes later.

It is a feat achieved after Kane, who was the mainstay until last season, left. Son Heung-min is leading Tottenham’s attack in both the center and the side. The Premier League secretariat also highlighted Son’s record on its official channel in succession even in the middle of the season. In particular, when Korean leaguers were outstanding, Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan (28, Wolverhampton Wanderers) were praised together. In January, the Premier League secretariat announced the players who scored the most goals compared to the expected goal (xG). Son Heung-min ranked first and Hwang Hee-chan ranked third. It was evaluated that he had the best goal-determining ability in the league.

Even the Premier League secretariat listed Son as the best 11 players in the first half. In the same month, it released the best 11 players in the first half through its official channel. Son was selected as the striker on the left side. “Son Heung-min is a special talent. I expect him to score a goal whenever he visits the goalpost,” Shearer complimented. Indeed, her performance could only be recognized by the sheer volume of her evaluations on Son.
In the 2023-2024 season, Son led Tottenham to the top with fantastic performances. There were some concerns as Harry Kane (31) left for Munich, but Son completely filled the vacancy in the main gun and established himself as a Tottenham ace. Son, who mainly played on the sidelines, has proven his ability as a striker this season and is trusted by Tottenham manager Postecoglou.

When his team was in crisis, he displayed unique leadership. After winning against Villa, Tottenham was hampered by Fulham in the next match. When Tottenham lost, Son left an unusual comment in an interview after the match. BBC also paid attention to Son’s remarks. According to media outlets, Son said, “Tottenham needs to wake up from its sleep. Tottenham needs a big awakening. The result was unacceptable to all players including myself.” All players must look in the mirror and say, ‘It’s my fault.’
