Fantastic ‘Son’ only ‘going to get better’
PREMIER LEAGUE: Mauricio Pochettino believes his Tottenham side are about to see the best of Son Heung-min after his standout performance in the demolition of Chelsea.
Son scored a sublime individual goal – his 50th for the club – as Spurs put on a scintillating display to end their London rivals’ unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a 3-1 win at Wembley.
Dele Alli and Harry Kane also found the net, but Chelsea’s defence were unable to cope with Son’s speed.
“You can see on the pitch, Son’s performance was fantastic,” the Argentinian said.
“In the last international break he was here, training hard. It is one of the reasons that he showed he is fresh, his physical condition is much better and I think it is going to help him for the rest of the season.”
