Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was left stunned after seeing Son Heung-min score his second goal in the club’s most recent game.
Over the weekend, Spurs cruised to a 3-1 home win over Leicester City in the Premier League. Harry Kane opened the scoring before a second-half double from Son settled the game, with Kelechi Iheanacho grabbing a late consolation.
The win gives the north London club a much-needed three points as they push for a top-four finish at the end of the season, but that pressure doesn’t seem to be affecting their South Korean winger too much.
Will Son fire Spurs into a top four finish?
Indeed, he truly showed his quality with his second goal, as he picked the ball up from outside the box before curling it into the top corner with his weaker foot in ‘sensational’ fashion.
Upon seeing the goal, Hojbjerg was left with his ‘head in his hands’, as noted by journalist Dan Kilpatrick, who wrote on Twitter: “Hojbjerg has his head in his hands after Son curls a stunning effort into the top corner from 20 yards. Game over and Spurs moving back into the top four, heaping the pressure on Arsenal.”
TIF Thoughts on Son Heung-min and Tottenham…
The 29-year-old has certainly been flying of late. In this game, not only did he score twice, but he also provided the assist for Kane’s opener. As a result, he now has eight goals and two assists in his last six Premier League matches.
In total, across all competitions this term, he has scored 20 times and added a further nine assists in 41 outings. All in all, Son’s been in pretty incredible form across the season, so it’s no wonder his teammates seem to be in awe of his quality.
However, despite his efforts, Spurs still trail Arsenal in the top four race by two points, with just four games each left to play. If the South Korean can keep showing his talent in the final weeks of the season, he could be the man to get Tottenham back into the Champions League.
