Dele Alli and Danny Rose have added their voices to the growing chorus of praise for Heung-Min Son.
Our South Korean international star made it seven goals in four games with a brace as we came back from 1-0 down to win 4-1 at Bournemouth on Sunday.
That took him to 18 for the season in all competitions and means he’s closing in on the 21-goal haul he bagged last term – something that hasn’t gone unnoticed among his team-mates.
“Sonny is an unbelievable player and it’s a joy to play in this team with so many quality players. It’s nice to see him scoring and he plays such a huge part in the team,” said Dele, who scored our equaliser on the south coast.
Left-back Danny added: “Sonny is very under-rated. Goals aside, people don’t get to see his attitude on a day-to-day basis. He’s always bubbly whether or not he plays and he deserves all the plaudits.
“He’s now closing in on 20 goals again in all competitions and that’s something to be delighted with – we’re all delighted for him and long may it continue!”
Sonny’s first goal against the Cherries wasn’t the cleanest of finishes as he connected with Dele’s cross on the volley, but his second one required a lot of composure to carry the ball around goalkeeper Asmir Begovic on the break with Erik Lamela motoring forward to give him an option.
“I was speaking to him afterwards about his second goal,” said Dele. “He had so much time to go through and you could see him looking at Erik – he had a lot of time to think about it and it can be tough, you can change your mind, but it was another calm and collected finish.
“He’s an amazing player and a big part of this team.”

What a difference a week makes. Dele Alli painted a picture of dejection after our FA Cup semi-final loss against Manchester United last weekend. Nine days later he was on target again, this time in a 2-0 win over Watford as we strengthened our grip on a place in the top four.
