Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son have now joined four other Spurs players in the Guardian’s prestigious top 100 list.

Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, and Hugo Lloris were revealed in the first two instalments, as Chrisitan Eriksen took the highest-ranked spot at 41 out of 100.

The Guardian has now released the third instalment of the prestigious list, listing the top 90 players of the calendar year.

Heung-Min Son’s impressive display in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City, scoring twice in 4-3 lost at the Eithad, saw him cement his spot at 19 out of 100.

The South Korean was one of Spurs most consistent players in 2019, contributing 10 goals in the Premier League, along with his sensational solo goal against Burnley. (Transfermrkt)

Harry Kane is currently ranked highest in the Spurs squad at 15 out of 100 in the Guardian’s list.

Perhaps the striker rescued his spot with an incredible scoring return so far this season with 27 goals in 29 games. (FootyStats)

Spurs Web Opinion

To nobody’s surprise, Heung Min-Son is in the top 20 and deservedly so. Sonny produced a magical performance in the Champions League against Manchester City, as he scored three goals across the two legs. Son has arguably been Spurs best performer in 2019, especially filling in the boots of Harry Kane. Kane has also had an incredible 2019/20 season so far, but somewhat surprising to see him ranked higher than Son.
