Antonio Conte details that he’ll need more from Spurs star amid their top-four race

By Eddie Razo -

Son Heung-min is heading into Tottenham Hotspur’s weekend fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion in good form. The 29-year-old has scored six goals in his last five Premier League fixtures, including a hat-trick last weekend against Aston Villa. 

Manager Antonio Conte spoke about Son ahead of Spurs’ matchup against The Seagulls. He stated that the squad would need more from the winger as Tottenham hopes to maintain their place in the top four and fend off clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United, and West Ham United. 

“We are talking about a really good player. I was sure that it was normal after an injury to need a bit of time to recover the best possible condition and get back again into our idea of football again. But I was sure, because Sonny for us is a really important player and at the peak of his form,” Conte said at his news conference with Football.London relaying his remarks. 

“But he can improve, and that is my expectation – that he gives us from now until the end of the season and big push and to try to finish his race in the best possible way. Don’t forget, one month ago I asked my best players, my more representative players, that now the team needed this type of player to take on the more important responsibilities. That role is also important for this.”

Son has picked the right time to get hot for the north London club with seven fixtures on their calendar. Five of those matches will be against clubs where Spurs will be the undisputed favorites. The other two are against Arsenal and Liverpool, where some will side with the opponent.

Nonetheless, if Conte’s men continue this form, then they’ll have more of a puncher’s chance to come away with six points against The Gunners and Reds next month.
