Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min more valuable than Manchester United ace

Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min has been called a “more valuable” player than Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez. The Tottenham forward has scored seven goals in his last four Spurs’ matches in all competitions. Sanchez has tallied just one goal in 10 appearances for the Red Devils. The comparison between the two has opened plenty of debate over which player is more important to their club.

Heung-Min Son an unsung hero

Son’s two goals against Bournemouth at the weekend were vital as the team’s leading scorer Harry Kane limped off injured. Son has scored 18 times in all competitions for Tottenham as the South Korean has quietly had a better season than Sanchez in terms of statistics.

Football pundit Chris Sutton wrote about Son’s recent performances in his recent column for the Daily Mail.

“If I was a Premier League manager, I would take Son Heung-min over Alexis Sanchez every day of the week,” Sutton penned.

“We talk about how influential Harry Kane is for Tottenham but Son is the next best thing. He has energised Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
