Tottenham ace rewarded with Premier League Player of the Month
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham attacker Heung-Min Son has been named the Premier League Player of the Month for September.
The 24-year-old has been in great form this season and helped his side win three out of three league games last month.
Spurs recorded wins against Stoke, Sunderland and Middlesbrough, which has helped them to second in the table.
Son netted braces against Stoke and Middlesbrough as he grabbed a firm grip on his first-team place.
The Premier League announced on their official Twitter account that Son had won the award, beating off competition from Kevin De Bruyne, Adam Lallana, Romelu Lukaku and Theo Walcott.

Son’s four goals in September helped him become undroppable by Mauricio Pochettino and he has even filled the void of the injured Harry Kane.
The South Korean international is commonly used as a winger, but has also been deployed as the central attacker ahead of Vincent Janssen.
He completed his move to White Hart Lane in 2015 and struggled to cement his place in the team last season.
Son has now begun to settle at Spurs and is expected to line up in their next game against West Brom.
The north London club are the only unbeaten team left in the division and have their eye on a first Premier League crown.
