You can see why the Tottenham fanbase absolutely loves Heung-min Son. The South Korean was at his unstoppable best at the weekend against Crystal Palace, a match Spurs ended up winning 4-0.

In fact, thanks to two goals from Son, one from Lamela, and an own goal forced by Serge Aurier, Spurs went 4-0 up even before half-time.

The second half was all about retaining possession and seeing the game out without conceding, while saving energy for the important midweek Champions League clash.

Sonny’s opening goal in the clash was classic of the forward, as he collected a ball over the top, cut inside, and dragged a shot to the near-post to wrong-foot the keeper.

While this was an impressive finish from Son, his second was arguably the pick of the bunch on the day, as Serge Aurier picked out a delightful ball in and Heung-Min volleyed it home at the back stick.

Modest as ever, Son strangely labelled the goal as ‘a little lucky’ (Tottenham): “It was a little lucky, a great ball from Serge. It is lucky! The cross was great from Serge and I’m really happy for him, he came back in and performed really well. It doesn’t matter who scored, who played well, who didn’t play well, we’re all just happy to win the game. It was a great performance.”
