Heung-min Son deserves Player of the Year over Premier League goal machine Mohamed Salah

Heung-Min Son deserves to be crowned Player of the Season and would break multiple records at Liverpool and Manchester City if he joined the Premier League giants.

The bubbly Tottenham forward with the perpetual smile on his face has been in scintillating form the last few months with Antonio Conte’s side gearing up by impressively kickstarting their Champions League charge. Son has been the undeniable frontman scoring three goals in Tottenham’s last two league games in his usual quiet and unassuming demeanor.

Son has scored ten goals since the beginning of March, not least of which was a stupendous hat-trick against Aston Villa, besides providing two brilliant assists in the Premier League and the South Korean national striker’s performance in his side’s 1-1 draw earned the unbridled admiration of talkSPORT’s Gabby Agbonlahor.

In his most recent exploit, the dynamic, fleet-footed 29-year-old scored against high-flyers Liverpool, popping and bursting the Reds’ balloon and denting their title chances via a well-executed tryst involving Ryan Sessegnon and Harry Kane.

Former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor brought up just how impressed he was with the form and performances of the no. 7 not only in the game against Liverpool but across the last few months when discussing Tottenham’s draw with the Reds on talkSPORT Breakfast this week.

“Son’s in great form.” Agbonlahor enthused.

“We talk about best players in the Premier League, I’m going to go with Son being player of the season for me in front of Salah.

“He’s outstanding, left foot, right foot, he’s scoring screamers that you wouldn’t even attempt with your weaker foot.”

The South Korea international has scored 21 times this season, having played six games less when compared to Salah’s 30. Agbonlahor has no doubts that the former pips the Egyptian to being the best performer in the league this season.

In addition to this, the ex-Aston Villa man believes that if Son had been playing for either Manchester City or Liverpool this season, he would’ve scored loads more goals.

“If he was in Liverpool or Man City’s team he’d be getting all sorts of records and goals.”
