Tottenham South Korean forward Son Heung-min has been in good shape lately.
After returning from duty with his national team, Son has been part of the scoreboard for the Spurs in the following four games, including decisive goals against Newcastle and Leicester.
“I think he’s been one of the best players in the Premier League this season,” former Liverpool defender Carragher told Goal Korea.
Note here that he has stepped into a starring role, after absences of Harry Kane and Delle Alli in recent weeks, becoming the “go-to” guy for The Spurs.

In total, Son has scored 16 goals in 32 games this season and has provided 9 assists. However, it is the South Korean’s form in the second half of the campaign that has been so noteworthy.
In his last 15 Premier League matches, Son has been directly involved in 17 goals, scoring 11 and assisting 6.
