The South Korean Messi: Tottenham supporters react on Twitter to Son brace v Middlesbrough

By Amir Mir

Heung-Min Son scored his fourth goal in three Premier League games against Middlesbrough and Tottenham supporters were ecstatic with his run of form in recent weeks.

Son scored the opening goal for the visitors at the Riverside to give Mauricio Pochettino’s men an early lead in the Premier League encounter, before adding a second before the half hour mark.

The 24-year-old linked up well with striker Vincent Janssen who held the ball up in the penalty area, before laying it off to the incoming Son who took two touches with his right foot, before slotting the ball home on his left to open the scoring.

Son then added a remarkable second in the 23rd minute to take his tally to four goals from three games and give Spurs a healthy lead going into the break.

Supporters on Twitter were overjoyed with his form stating that the South Korean international will surely not leave in the January transfer window, if he keeps this run of form going.
