The title era of Son Heung Min (Part 2)

Tottenham does not seem to have reached the strength of a champion, although it is impossible to say anything about the form of the Premier League giants this season as each side has soon revealed cracks in their armor.

Even champions Liverpool have lost Virgil Van Dijk and are leaving defensive concerns, so Tottenham’s hope is still there.

But the biggest chances for Tottenham seem to lie in the cup fronts. They are proving very strong in the Europa League as well as continuing to maintain the League Cup & FA Cup front. Coach Jose Mourinho in his career always attaches great importance to the League Cup arena, so it would not be surprising if he decides to join his students on that front if it is the only chance for Spurs to have the title.

Mourinho is using Son in the best way of his career by not only getting along well with Harry Kane, but also by the powerful support from full-backs like Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier. And he also has a B option for attackers, with Carlos Vinicius, Erik Lamela, Gareth Bale, Steven Bergwijn to keep Son, Kane and Lucas Moura strong without affecting the gameplay.

Everything is ideal for Son Heung Min and the rest is just how long he will continue to maintain his current form. Certainly the opponents have started to pay attention to him and Kane and the attacking style of Spurs, and the difficulty from now on will only increase. But those are the necessary challenges for Son to deserve the acclaim that he is “Asian Ronaldo”.

And if this season, Son helped Tottenham win the Premier League and won himself a personal title as top scorer, Son Heung Min will surely be praised no less than the Portuguese version of Ronaldo.
