Tottenham ace Son Heung-min terms Brighton & Hove Albion a decent team following Premier League clash
This comes on the heels of the meeting between both teams at The Amex earlier on Saturday. Tottenham secured all three points courtesy of a first-half strike from Harry Kane. It saw them keep pace with early trendsetters Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the table.
The Seagulls might have lost key players and their manager in recent months. However, none of the fighting spirit has been diminished and they remain as competitive as ever.
Son clearly believes Brighton are a formidable side and revealed how difficult it is to face them. Not many teams will come away with all three points from The Amex and Tottenham did well to pull it off.
“They [Brighton] are a decent team who are really, really tough to play against, especially away from home.”
Son was among the standout players on the night and caused the Seagulls’ defence several problems. He laid off the assist for Kane’s winner and also found the back of the net himself in the second half. However, his effort was chalked off.
The South Korean was taken off in the second half to large-scale boos from the Tottenham fans. Clearly, the South Korean ace’s influence on the pitch was apparent for all to see.
Son goes on to add that the victory could be a special one in the grand scheme of things. There are no free lunches in the English top flight and Tottenham have every reason to be proud of the result.
“It’s a special win, I think. The Premier League is heavy, every game is just tough. We are really proud of this result.”
