Tottenham Hotspur picked up a 2-1 win over Brighton and Albion in the Premier League yesterday.
After conceding early in the first half, the North London giants bounced back strongly in the second half with a goal from Pape Matar Sarr on the hour mark. Brennan Johnson scored the winning goal of the game deep into injury time.
Son Heung-min set up the winner with a fine pass and Johnson got on the end of it to put the ball in the back of the net.
Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has now opened up on the return of the South Korean international and his fine assist against Brighton. The Australian revealed that Son’s timely return was important for the team and it was his world-class quality that made the pass for the winning goal look easy.
Postecoglou added that the South Korean is a world-class player and he made the difference when his side needed him.
“It’s fair to say that we are still a work in progress but we had a world-class player in Son [Heung-min], who makes the most difficult ball look simple to set up Brennan [Johnson]. Going into the game we looked at the squad and knew we had the ability to change it up. It’s fair to say that held up,” Postecoglou said to BBC.
The 31-year-old has been in fine form this season with 12 goals and six assists in the league. He will hope to guide Tottenham to Champions League qualification. Tottenham are currently fourth in the league table and they are just two points adrift of bitter rivals Arsenal, who are in third place.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can build on their win over Brighton and put together a winning run now. There is no doubt that they have the squad to do well in the comings weeks and finish the season strongly.
