Heung-min Son joins exclusive Premier League club

After scoring vs Newcastle, it has been revealed that Heung-min Son is only the seventh different player to score 10+ Premier League goals in 8+ successive seasons, after Wayne Rooney (11), Frank Lampard (10), Sergio Agüero (9), Harry Kane (9), Thierry Henry (8), and Sadio Mané (8).

Following the game, Ange Postecoglou was quick to praise Son and explained why he moved the forward back onto the left-wing instead of using him up front like he has done of late:

“With Sonny, looking at the last few weeks, most of our chances and opportunities have fallen to the wide players,” the Tottenham boss said. “He’s still our best finisher and I thought getting him back on the left would give us some more avenues to score goals.

“As I said, Sonny set the tone early on and I think the rest of the lads fed off him.”
