‘Spurs are lost without him’ – Garth Crooks on Tottenham star

Tottenham Hotspur look to be getting back towards their best, as they continue to rack up the three points in the Premier League.

Spurs have won their last three Prem games, albeit not by much on each occasion, but the narrow victories have been enough to close the gap on their title rivals.

With Liverpool dropping points against Both Leicester and West Ham, and Man City losing to Newcastle, Tottenham are now only five points off the top.

The Lilywhites have been rejuvenated by the return of Heung Min Son from the Asia Cup, with the South Korean scoring in both games since he flew back to London.

Son gives Spurs a completely different dynamic, running in behind, attacking defenders, and scoring goals on either foot.

Garth Crooks has claimed that Spurs looked completely lost without the winger during his spell away, especially with Kane and Alli both out too.

He said (BBC):  “Thank goodness he’s back! South Korea’s exploits in the Asian Cup took a turn for the worse, during which time Spurs went out of the FA Cup.

“Son Heung-min’s return to the Tottenham line-up was like pouring petrol into a Ferrari.

“Without Son in the side, Spurs looked like they were running out of gas.

“Yes, his goal against Newcastle was fortuitous and Martin Dubravka should hang his head in shame.

“But Son is a class act and, missing the injured Harry Kane, Spurs are lost without him.”
