By Dominic Toner
Heung-Min Son has named his four closest team-mates at Tottenham.
The 24-year-old has been in remarkable form at the start of the season and become an unlikely hero at White Hart Lane.
The attacker has now scored five goals in just six appearances and has helped Spurs begin the season strongly.
Spurs are the only side unbeaten in the Premier League and are just a point behind league leaders Manchester City, who they beat 2-0 last weekend.
Son was used as a central figure by manager Mauricio Pochettino in that game and he has also enjoyed success operating from the left wing.

The South Korea international told the Evening Standard that he is extremely close with four team-mates in particular in the Spurs squad.
“Who’s my best friend? Many players are my best friend. There’s an Austrian guy Kevin Wimmer, Delle Ali, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, there’s so many good players, and good friends to me,” he said.
The Spurs winger is currently under contract until 2020 and is enjoying a purple patch of form.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has a wealth of attacking options in his squad, with Son competiting alongside team-mates Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Moussa Sissoko.
Son moved to White Hart Lane in 2015 from German side Bayer Leverkusen, where he scored 29 goals in just 87 appearances.
He is now beginning to recreate that form is currently a guaranteed starter at Spurs.
