Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Son performance v Sunderland

By Dominic Toner

Heung-min Son delivered a solid performance against Sunderland and the Tottenham supporters praised the midfielder on Twitter.

Spurs continued their unbeaten league start on Sunday with a 1-0 win against Sunderland, courtesy of a Harry Kane goal in the second-half.

The result was marred by injuries to Kane, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier which forced the trio off in the second-half, which the club’s fans voiced their concern about on Twitter after the match.

Son, 24, played the full 90 minutes for Spurs as he continued his recent run in the side.

The club’s supporters expressed their delight on Twitter over the attacker’s performance.

Son moved to White Hart Lane from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 in a £22million deal.

The winger has been a regular member of the first-team since his move but has been restricted to several substitute appearances in that time.

He made his first appearance of the new season against Stoke last weekend, scoring a brace in the 4-0 rout, and retained his starting place for the mid-week defeat to Monaco in the Champions League.

Son faces serious competition in the Spurs squad from team-mates Erik Lamela, Moussa Sissoko, Christian Eriksen and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

The South Korean international will hope to continue his good form and remain in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line up.
