Never in doubt, form is temporary but class is ever permanent; the drought is over and what better way is there to announce his return than in a sensational thirteen minutes hattrick? It’s the dawn of the rising sun of North London, Heung Min Son!
Fantasy Premier League managers were left frustrated after their big money super star failed to spark in the opening six game rounds; with the passing and eventual burial of the Queen necessitating suspension of the entire game week seven and postponement of three game week eight games, selling Son was a no-brainer.
To make matters worse for the brave 304 managers who triple captained the South Korean forward, Antonio Conte opted to keep him on the bench. You can’t blame the manager, Richarlison has impressed and Dejan Kulusevski always offers something special when called.
With Leicester City in town, a porous defense and a troubled structure, you can understand why some would risk their triple captain on a player that hadn’t recorded anything of note all season long but boy, didn’t it pay off?
With Spurs leading 3-2 on the hour mark, Conte brought on Son for the Brazilian and the rest is history. Son proved his worth with three sleek goals and momentarily, it too Spurs joint top before their neighbors Arsenal usurped them the next day.
But where does the result leave Leicester City? How does Brendan Rodgers still have a job? Maybe they don’t use same template as that of Stamford Bridge but he must count himself lucky; with Nottingham Forest up next for the Foxes, the management might offer some empathy to see what happens.
