It is certainly not an easy task to pick Tottenham Hotspur’s Player of the Year this campaign, given how disappointing a season the North Londoners have experienced.

Spurs are on course to finishing outside the top four for the fist-time in five years and have also disappointed in both European and domestic cup competition.

Very few of Tottenham’s squad have consistently performed at a high level week in, week out with Harry Kane arguably the exception to the rule.

Sky Sports have now revealed their take on the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for each Premier League club so far this season and their choice for Tottenham’s best player raised a few eyebrows.

They chose to name Heung-Min Son’s as Tottenham’s standout performer this season.

Although the South Korean has missed game time through injury and suspension (transfermarkt), they claim his goals and assists stats as the reason for naming him ahead of his teammates.

They wrote: “Despite playing only two-thirds of Tottenham’s minutes in the Premier League this season, Heung-Min Son has been directly involved in 16 goals, the most of any player at the club.

“His goal against Aston Villa in February was his ninth of the season in the league and the fifth successive game in which he had scored in all competitions. His total of seven assists is a club-high and already the most in any league campaign of his career.

“But as well as his last-minute winner, Son also came away from Villa Park with a fractured arm, and without him Tottenham have one point from three games, drifting seven points away from the Champions League places.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Giovani Lo Celso has been our most consistent performer and has been the stand out player over the past few months but he didn’t really get much of a look in until January. However, if the season were to be completed behind closed doors, one would assume the Argentine would clock up enough appearances to take home the Player of the Season award.
