“He has been one of the best players in the Premier League for a long time now.

“It is difficult to get carried away because they did not have a shot on target in two games going into Leicester. It is the consistency that Spurs lack.

“Son is infectious on and off the field. His attitude is exemplary and you can see that his smile lights up the dressing room. He is such a likeable character as well as being a great footballer.

“He is very rarely injured and his energy levels are incredible. Son is probably the first name on the team sheet right now. Sonny is top-drawer.”

Son has been one of Tottenham’s standout player’s this season.

He has contributed 20 goals and nine assists in 41 appearances across all competitions.
