Tottenham star must turn the corner or face Pochettino axe
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Tottenham attacker Heung-Min Son must begin to perform on a regular basis or he could be dropped by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The 24-year-old was one of Spurs’ best performers at the beginning of the season and scored braces against Stoke and Middlesbrough in the Premier League.
His form has been inconsistent recently and he was a passenger in the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday.
The winger could be handed his last chance to impress on Wednesday night against Hull and face being dropped to the bench if he fails to deliver.
Spurs boss Pochettino does have Moussa Sissoko back from injury to play on the wing and senior player Erik Lamela is nearing a return.

Son did scored in the 5-0 demolition against Swansea on 3 December, but his previous Premier League goal was back in September against Boro.
The South Korea international enjoyed his best spell in a Spurs shirt at the beginning of the season and was expected to cement his place in the starting line up.
He is yet to string a good run of games together and Pochettino needs consistency as he tries to get Spurs back into the title race.
The north London club have some favourable fixtures coming up with Hull, Burnley, Southampton and Watford in their next four matches.
Son must now rediscover his best form if he wishes to stay in the Spurs starting XI and show Pochettino that he can support the title push.
The attacker has proven that he can have a huge impact on the team when he is playing well, scoring six goals and supplying five assists in 18 appearances this season.
