Son Heung-min nominated for Goal of the Week and Player of the Week Champions League awards after Tottenham beat Frankfurt

Son Heung-min has been nominated for the Player of the Week and the Goal of the Week awards after Tottenham Hotspur beat Eintracht Frankfurt by a 3-2 margin at N17, as confirmed by the official UEFA Champions League website.

The South Korea international was in fine form and scored a brace to help us overturn a 1-0 scoreline after Daichi Kamada’s 14th-minute goal. Son’s first goal came in the 20th minute after Harry Kane found him with a beautifully weighted left-footed pass.

The England international then turned from provided to scorer as he gave us the lead via a penalty. Son’s second goal was the one he has been nominated for, which was a sweetly-hit left-footed volley.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg chipped the ball into the box from the right flank for the former Bayer Leverkusen star to hit it first time and score in the 36th minute. Son’s other competitors for the goal of the week award are Darwin Nunez of Liverpool, Hirving Lozano of SSC Napoli, and Galeno of FC Porto.

The player of the week sees Son nominated once again, this time with Club Brugge goalkeeper Simon Mignolet who helped keep a clean sheet against Atletico Madrid in a 2-0 win, Roberto Firmino of Liverpool, and Maccabi Haifa’s Omer Atzili.

Son seems to have really found his feet this season. Manager Antonio Conte dropped him to the bench against Leicester City before the international break last month.

He came on as a second-half substitute to score a second-half hat trick and has been a changed player since then. This was his 19th goal in UEFA Champions League proper in 51 matches.

16 of those have come for Spurs. There is no time for rest, however, as games against Everton and Manchester United await us in the Premier League. The 30-year-old, as always, will be crucial for us in this uber-busy month.
