Son Heung-min delivered an impressive display against Manchester City in Tottenham’s 2-0 victory on Sunday – and supporters of the north London club took to express their delight.
The South Korea international started the match up front on his own, with Harry Kane out injured and Vincent Janssen still adapting to the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side produced a convincing win over top of the league Manchester City with an own goal from Aleksandar Kolorov and Dele Alli strike.
Erik Lamela also missed a penalty in the second half.
Son was brought off in the second half stoppage time for Janssen, but fans were delighted with his performance up top on social media.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

It's odd how poorly aguero is playing, but this Son is quite a player. Hold up play is excellent, and scores some goals. Go on, Son. #THFC

Ruthless by #THFC today. Son and Wanyama absolutely brilliant. Expect them to push for the title again this season. Superb.

Son had previously started on the left side of Tottenham’s attacking midfield three.
However, given his impressive form scoring five goals in five appearances before the City tie Pochettino selected him to lead the club’s line.
The South Korean is now becoming a pivotal part of the squad after he almost left White Hart Lane in the summer transfer window.
The victory has moved Spurs up to second place and one point behind league leaders City.
