“One of the three”- Antonio Conte addresses talk of putting Son Heung-min on Tottenham set-pieces

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says Son Heung-min is already in line to take Spurs set-pieces after South Korea heroics

Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min scored a wonderful free-kick for South Korea against Costa Rica in a friendly match earlier this month.

The set-piece rescued a 2-2 draw for his country in the dying embers of the game. Following that striker, there have been calls of having Son take Spurs’ free kicks once again.

Harry Kane and Eric Dier are two players that Antonio Conte seems to prefer with regard to that. When asked in a press conference (h/t Football.London) if Son could take Tottenham’s set-pieces in the future, the former Inter Milan manager said that he is already one of three players on Spurs’ set-pieces.

“Yeah but Son is one of the three players who have the task to take set pieces. We have him, Harry and Eric Dier. For sure now he has great confidence because he scored.”

The 30-year-old has a beautiful shooting technique, which was on display against Leicester City in our last match before the international break this month. The former Bayer Leverkusen ace scored two wonderful curling goals against Leicester’s Danny Ward before scoring his hat-trick later on.

He was dropped to the bench for the first time this season in that game and it would be very surprising to see if that is repeated once again. Alongside Kane, Son has been thought of by fans as virtually undroppable in recent seasons.

Richarlison’s arrival and Dejan Kulusevski’s form, however, would force Son to be on his toes all the time now if he wasn’t already. Our next task is a north London derby at the Emirates on Saturday.

More Tottenham News:

It won’t be a surprise to see Son walk up to the ball if the Lilywhites win a free-kick in a dangerous area against Arsenal.
