Son Heung-Min will consider himself unlucky to have missed out on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award after the South Korean has enjoyed his best season in a Tottenham shirt to date.
Son has already managed to score 20 goals in all competitions, just one short of his tally in 2016/17 season, which was his most prolific campaign with Spurs.
The 26-year-old has stepped up to the plate in the absence of Harry Kane, and has ensured that Tottenham have managed to get over the line in several crucial games this season.
Most recently, the pacey attacker scored three goals in the two Champions League quarter-final ties against Manchester City, helping Spurs to set up a clash with Ajax in the final four.
Former Spur and current Manchester City full-back Kyle Walker who featured in all three of those games, has spoken about his delight regarding Son’s recent successes.
Speaking to Manchester’s City’s official website, the defender said: “Son has been on fire and he deserves everything he gets. He is a very close friend of mine and the boy is so nice.
“He wouldn’t say boo to a goose, he is that nice. He deserves everything he gets. His hard work is paying off for him.”
