Garth Crooks believes Heung-min Son is the Premier League's most improved player
BBC Pundit Garth Crooks has spoken positively about the impact of Heung-min Son has had at Tottenham Hotspur this term. The South Korea international has been a regular in the Spurs setup in the 4-2-3-1 formation, and he is presently on 11 goals for the club across all competitions.
Writing on his BBC Sport column, Crooks highlighted the tireless workrate of the Korean footballer, who has developed leaps and bounds, working with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in the attack, he said: "The South Korean is renowned for his energy and covers the ground with enormous alacrity.
"What I like most about him is that he genuinely plays the game with a smile on his face. I get the impressed sometimes when he plays for Spurs that he is so grateful to be playing at Tottenham at all. I have said before that I think Son is one of the most improved players in the Premier League and against Everton he proved it once again."
Son has already achieved more than half of his 21-goal tally from the previous campaign, and he will surely have his sights on improving on this record with his team side alive in the FA Cup and Champions League, where he could yet make an impact.
The north London giants have roped in Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain to add competition for places, but the South Korean's future is seemingly secured for the season, owing to his impressive exploits over the past few months.
Spurs clinched an important 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday night, which keeps them within two points off both Chelsea and Liverpool, and they will now fancy pushing for the top-four when they make the way to Anfield to take on the latter in a much-awaited clash this weekend.
