Alan Hutton has been left buzzing over Tottenham attacker Heung-min Son following his display in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Spurs right-back revealed that he thought the 27-year-old winger was unbelievable against the Eagles,
Son scored his first league goals of the season on Saturday as he registered a brace to help Spurs achieve a comfortable win over their London rivals in their latest Premier League outing.
Son missed Tottenham’s first two league games of the season due to a suspension and Hutton revealed that it will only be a good thing going forward for Spurs that the winger looks to be getting back to his very best.
“Unbelievable, last season he was amazing, he just plays hearty, he just seems to love playing football so to get him back to his very best is only going to be a strong point for Tottenham going forward,” Hutton told Football Insider.
“It was a masterclass between him and Aurier, who came in and had a solid performance, but yeah, Son Man of the Match for me all day long.
“Every time you see him on the pitch he is smiling, he just generally seems to love being on the pitch, so to have a player like that who works hard, gives you everything, is technically far beyond any other players, it must be a dream to work with him, to be on his team or manage him. He’s a real special player.”
In his 2018/19 campaign, Son racked up 20 goals and 10 assists in the 40 appearances he made across all competitions for Spurs.
The 27-year-old has been at Tottenham since 2015 after joining from Bayern Leverkusen and is contracted to stay at the club until 2023.
