To say that Son Heung-min is a fan favourite among the Spurs faithful is certainly an understatement.

The 28-year-old is adored by Tottenham supporters, not just because of what he provides on the pitch, but also due to the attitude with which he plays the game.

The South Korean international was not in the best of form going into the North London Derby on Sunday as he was yet to find the back of the net for Spurs since the restart.

Son partnered Harry Kane up front in a 4-4-2 formation instead of starting on the left side as he has done since the restart.

The change of position seemed to work wonders for the forward, with his pace on the counter-attack serving as a constant menace to the Gunners’ backline all game.

Son took his equaliser extremely well after a mistake from Kolasinac sent him through on goal. His in-swinging corner kick was then headed home by Toby Alderweireld to give the home side the win late on.

As Son and Alderweireld were waiting to be interviewed by Spurs TV after the game, the former Bayer Leverkusen man decided to whisper, ‘Come On You Spurs’ into the microphone.

Some Spurs fans could not get enough of Son after he gave the club a shout out following the derby win. Here’s how some fans on social media reacted to Son’s gesture:

Spurs Web Opinion

Son’s ability to hurt the opposition was never really in doubt given his pace, trickery and shooting ability with both feet. However, I always felt until recently that he was not sharp enough in helping us defend from the front and in trying to win the ball from the opposition defenders. That is something that has noticeably changed since the restart. The South Korean is certainly putting in a big shift defensively and is taking up intelligent positions off the ball. He has not been shying away from challenges and is putting a lot of pressure on defenders. I believe this modification to his game can be put down to Mourinho.
