Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Son display v Leverkusen
By Harvey Byrne
Son Heung-min started upfront for Tottenham in the Wednesday evening clash against Bayer Leverkusen and fans were left unimpressed with his display.
The 24-year-old South Korea international changed from his usual wide role to start upfront for Spurs in their Champions League clash at Wembley.
He played the full 90 minutes in the north London side’s 1-0 defeat against Leverkusen following a Kevin Kampl strike.
Fans were left disappointed with what they saw from Son with a number of fans claiming that he isn’t good enough to play as a striker for the first team.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Walker, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son & Mousa before he went off were Sunday league standard in that half. Yet another case of bottling it?! #THFC

Son, Eriksen and Sissoko looks like u-18 players today.. #THFC

Son playing like he did last season. Running into opposition players, falling over, and not moving the ball on quickly enough. #thfc

Tough ask for Son tonight. Not the sort of game I'd have started him leading the line. Some nice moments since but not quite enough. #THFC

Star forward Harry Kane has only just returned to training following an injury received in September against Sunderland.
Summer signing Vincent Janssen has unimpressed so far in the striker role in Kane’s absence, while Son has had a few run outs upfront himself as well as the evening clash.
The South Korean started the season in impressive form with five goals from his opening five appearances, but he now gone six matches without a goal.
Spurs fans will be hoping that they can turn around their recent spell of poor form with a clash at the Emirates coming up on Sunday against fierce rivals Arsenal.
