Fan­tas­tic ‘Son’ only ‘go­ing to get bet­ter’

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

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.”
