‘Terrible’ – Son Heung-min lets Liverpool claim for Tottenham Hotspur confrontation

Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min has hailed Liverpool as one of his favorite teams to watch ahead of their Premier League meeting on Sunday.

Spurs welcome Liverpool to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for what looks set to be one of only four top games this weekend.

Tottenham are currently in seventh place with 25 points, but have played three fewer games than all but one of the teams due to Covid-19.

The Spurs have yet to catch fire since the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager, but Son wants his team-mates to make life as difficult as possible for Liverpool, which he admits he admires immensely.

“Liverpool are a very, very strong team and when I watch their matches I really enjoy it because the way they play is really fun to watch as a football fan,” the South Korean international said in an interview with Sky Sports.

“So it’s going to be a huge, huge game and it means something to us too.

“I don’t want them to think they can easily get three points here. I don’t want to give them an easy three points.

“I want to take the three points from them because it’s our home.

“I want to make it a terrible afternoon on Sunday… ‘Come to London, it’s going to be a very tough game’… that’s our goal.”

The future of son Harry Kane’s strike partner was in the air this summer.

Manchester City showed great interest, but the England captain ultimately stayed put.

Kane has only scored once in the Premier League this season, but Son says the goals will come.

“Watching Harry is so much fun and playing together is a dream,” added Son.

“Obviously he didn’t score many goals like last season, but the way he plays for the team is good and the goal will come.

“As a striker, when you have a period like that, the ball goes everywhere, you have a chance, a defender gets a touch, you miss the ball.

“Things like this are happening with H right now. The goal is coming and we believe in his quality and as team-mates we want to help him reach goals again.”
