Heung-min Son insists Spurs are ‘on right track’ despite Liverpool loss

Despite Tottenham falling to their fourth consecutive Premier League loss in a row on Sunday, Son Heung-min insisted that the team is on the right track and that it is about staying strong through this difficult spell.

A lot of the optimism that existed at Spurs around the Ange Postecoglou project has now dissipated, with many fans starting to wonder if the Australian can deliver on some of his big promises.

On the evidence of the last few months, it does appear as if his system has been found out a bit, with the Lilywhites struggling to create chances while also looking extremely suspect defensively.

However, many will perhaps still look at the positives and point out that this campaign was always going to be a transitional one for the stronger.

Spurs are on the right track, says Sonny

Son admitted that this is now a tough moment for the club and called on his teammates to stick together and emerge from this stronger.

The Tottenham captain told The Daily Mail after the 4-2 loss at Anfield: “In football, you think about start of season when we play well and everyone joy there was no pressure.

“Now is the time everyone has to step up, as I say before this is time to be stronger and get it together because when everything goes well its easy but now a tough moment.”

When asked if are Spurs on the right track, he replied: “Definitely. Sometimes like Thursday, it was not part of our game, we were very disappointed, also today very very disappointing but I think we are on right track and don’t forget the manager’s first season and first in Premier League. We are definitely on right track.”

Champions League qualification now looks beyond Tottenham, who sit seven points behind Aston Villa with a game in hand but Son insisted that the players will keep fighting until the end.

The South Korean added: “Everyone wants to play Champions League. Three games to go and we have to give it everything, keep believing in our game and give everything.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I am not too upset that we have failed to qualify for the Champions League as on the evidence of recent months, we are still not ready to go toe-to-toe with the best sides in the world.

While there is no doubt that this season was always going to be a tough one, what is concerning is that we are seeing signs of regress rather than progress.
