Son proving star quality

Sonny might be in the supporting role to Harry Kane but he is proving to have real star quality of his own says an article in The Express.

The Korean scored the first, made one of Kane’s two, and had a key role in Christian Eriksen’s goal and her hit the post against Everton. His goal made it five in a row at home for Tottenham matching a record held only by Jermain Defoe at the club.

However the article says Son claims he is happy for Kane to have the limelight.
“I really enjoy Harry scoring goals as that is also good for the team,” he said. “When I play with him and the team, he beats every record and we are part of this. I’m happy to help him.

Son added “It’s nice to have some record myself and I really enjoy it. But I’m not selfish or just thinking about myself. I’m really happy for Harry. I just want Harry to beat every record for England and the Premier League.”

The article goes on to say we were also treated to another superb display from right-back Serge Aurier. He set up Son for his goal and gave Everton left-back Cuco Martina a torrid time all match.

Aurier cost the club £23million, less than half the £50m the club got from Manchester City for Kyle Walker and the article says we look to have picked a bargain adding that he did come with a bit of a reputation following bust-ups with former France boss Laurent Blanc and with the police, the latter earning him a two-month suspended prison sentence.

However club & country skipper and team-mate Hugo Lloris said Aurier has settled in well. “There are a lot of bad things from his past in France but he is a great guy and a great personality,” said Lloris.

He added:You can make mistakes a person and learn a lot. He’s an open guy who knows his own mind. He likes to joke and have fun with the lads but on the pitch he becomes more serious.”
