Spurs hitman Son shines on TV - again

By Ciaran McGrath in Football

TOTTENHAM’s Son Heung-Min is already looking forward to the next game after bagging a brace in his side’s 4-0 demolition of Watford at White Hart Lane.

The South Korean striker - who probably should have had a hat-trick after shooting narrowly wide and striking the bar late on - will nevertheless be more than satisfied with his afternoon’s work, in which he had a hand in all four goals.

But he was quick to credit his team-mates, especially Dele Alli, who broke the deadlock just after the half-hour mark with superb curling strike.

Heung-Min said: "“The first goal was important. Before that we had problems, they had some shots, but when Dele scored a lovely goal it was easier for us. We then had space and chances to score.”

He also singled Kieran Trippier out for praise after the right back picked him out with a pinpoint cross for his second goal.

He added: "I’m delighted for him, he’s doing well and he’s a really good player. He has assisted me so many times so I’m thankful! I’m happy because he played well. We’re all happy for him.

"We just look forward. We all have quality, mentality and everyone has to show respect for their team-mates – 11 players and the players on the bench as well. Everyone helps each other, we’re all ready for each other and that’s why we’re all confident."
