Son Heung-min

Tottenham Hotspur star Son Hueng-min insists his club are “not scared” of Italian giants Juventus ahead of the second-leg in the Champions League round of 16 at Wembley on Wednesday.

Spurs came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Turin in the first-leg of Champions League round of 16 last month. They found themselves stunned inside 10 minutes when Gonzalo Higuain scored twice but credit to Mauricio Pochettino’s boys, who didn’t bog down and continued to fight before achieving a famous 2-2 draw eventually.

Son, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League last weekend, believes the current Spurs team have enough quality to advance in the quarter-finals of the Champions League past the experienced Italians.

“We are hungry; we are not finished,” Son was quoted by the Sky Sports.

“It’s a Champions League game against a difficult opponent. We play at home but we are not scared. We need to play our game, be confident and play forward like we play at Wembley. That’s the most important thing.

“We are looking forward to playing against a good team, a good opponent. I hope it’s a great atmosphere and I think we have a great opportunity.

“You can see how well Tottenham play. We deserve to play in the Champions League to the quarter-final or even more. We are good enough. If we win, everyone will be proud of Tottenham.

“I have to accept it if the gaffer doesn’t choose me: I just have to be ready if I come on or if I’m on the bench.”

Ahead of the big night against Juventus in the Champions League, Son with his match-winning performance against the Terriers has once again claimed he deserves to start ahead of Erik Lamela.

Lamela did start in the first leg at Turin but it would make sense if Mauricio Pochettino starts Son ahead of the Argentine on Wednesday.

The South Korean has often been the difference-maker for Spurs this season, scoring against the lesser teams at Wembley in the Premier League. And given what the forward did at Wembley last Saturday, it would be criminal not to start the in-form Son against the Italian champions.

Only time will tell what Pochettino decides before the big game at Wembley.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
