Son Heung-min

12 goals in 26 PL appearances this season, 4 goals in 10 CL appearances (3 in the QF tie vs City). In total 20 goals in 41 appearances this season, his best return in a Spurs shirt - the guy is getting better and better.

But beyond that there is his selflessness, and his ability to rise to the challenge and fire us through crucial games in the absence of Kane who has for obvious reasons been elevated to talisman status.

We paid about £20m for Son. He’s fast, he’s excellent with both feet, he’s a lethal finisher and he has a fantastic attitude. What a bargain, what a player. When you look at highly rated players like Martial or Zaha who play a similar position - no way would I swap.

Sissoko is being widely touted as our POTY and I commend the way he’s improved, no doubt him stepping up has dug us out of a hole in the absence of Dier, Wanyama and Dembele, but for me he’s all muscle and limited ability. Son is a proper footballer who we just could not have managed without and I really hope he gets the recognition he deserves.

For me Sonny should be our POTY. Fans made absolutely the right call giving it to Verts last season, hope the right call gets made again.

According to Sons Wiki he is 6ft tall. Would never have pegged him as being that big.

He does look pretty tall Ace if you watch him live.

I’ve seen him live plenty of times mate would never have had him as being 6 foot tall.

It’s not an assumption though, I’ve seen him live and would never have had him as being that tall. Dele for example is 6’2” and looks every inch of it when you see him. Never had Son down as a particularly tall guy, just average, not that it matters particularly, just saying.

Son has absolutely loads in his favour and one of the biggest thing is his love of the game.

He is old style in that he just loves playing football and always gives his best.

His finishing is very very good but his affect on team morale must be simply outstanding. A handshake for each player, never complains no matter how many times he is subbed. Always appears in the big games (Eriksen take note please).

Thats without the millions he generates thru merchandising in Asia.

Quite honestly whats not to love ffs?
