Heung-Min Son is relishing his new role at Tottenham since the departure of Harry Kane.
Now playing as a central attacker, the Spurs captain delivered again on the biggest stage with two clinical finishes in Sunday's pulsating 2-2 draw with fierce rivals Arsenal.
Son's fine performance at the Emirates saw him score for the 150th time for Tottenham and he now has five goals in six Premier League games so far this term, but that does not tell the whole story.
As well as scoring from his two shots on target, the South Korea international ended the game with a passing accuracy of 93 per cent, played two key passes, and created one big chance against an impressive and organised Arsenal side.
Son loves playing against the Gunners. After failing to score or assist in his first nine Premier League north London derbies, the 31-year-old has since found the net six times and registered two assists in his previous eight games against them. He is also the first Spurs player to score a league double at Arsenal in over 30 years.
«He's been outstanding as a leader and as a player,» Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou said after the match. If Son's fantastic form and positive influence continue, Spurs will have a successful season.
