Son Heung-min has admitted he has been disappointed by his form so far this season but confidently asserted that things will turn around for him as soon as he scores his first goal.

Despite not taking a single penalty last season, Son ended up sharing the Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

However, the South Korean has not started this campaign in the way he would have wanted and is yet to find the back of the net in the seven matches so far this season across all competitions.

The 30-year-old arguably had his best performance of the season in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Fulham last Saturday and was unlucky not to open his account in the first half when his effort came off the crossbar.

Antonio Conte remarked after the win over Fulham that Son is going through an unlucky spell but he is not worried about the forward’s form (Football.London).

The former Bayern Leverkusen man has now stated that he believes it is only a matter of time before he gets his first goal, given that he is still getting chances.

When asked how he feels about his start to the campaign, Son told The Independent: “I’m OK. If I’m honest, if I wasn’t getting chances in the game I would be worried but I’m still getting chances.

“In some games, there have been unlucky moments. In some games, it has been a bad finish. This is going to make me stronger.

“This is something I can see will be an improvement because I still have a lot of space for improvement. Most important is that we are doing well as a team. I’ll do everything the team needs.

“In some games, I’m really frustrated because if I have some massive chances and the ball doesn’t go in. It makes me just laugh.

“But I am not worried about it because the team and the staff and all the fans are helping me.

“I think if I score one the confidence will be back and I hope I can go on and score more goals.”

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that Son will score at least 15-20 goals this season as he does almost every campaign. The South Korean has always been a patchy player and we know that he will win us matches when he hits a purple patch. So, I am not at all concerned about his form.
