‘Son Heung-min is a better player than ‘selfish’ Salah’

Son Heung-min is a better player than Salah and Spurs now boast the best attack in the Premier League, says pundit Jason Cundy.

Son Heunng-min has no doubt taken his game to another level. The Tottenham forward has impressed this term and already has six goals in the Premier League.

Four of those goals came against Southampton where the Korean was simply unbelievable. The question of if he’s the best attacker in the Premier League at the moment is highly debatable.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has proven to be a consistent source of goals for years now.

His forward partner, Sadio Mane is another top name that needs no introduction. Infact, many claim the front trio of Salah, Mane and Firmino is perhaps the best in the Premier League and even world football.

Jason Cundy begs to disagree. With Tottenham showing lots of promise in attack so far, the talkSPORT pundit sees Spurs with the best attack in the League. Asides the presence of Son and Kane, Gareth Bale is still yet to come in the mix.

Asked who he would rather have between Son and Salah, the pundit picks the Tottenham man and gave his reasons why.

“Well, Liverpool’s have been outstanding, but Firmino didn’t really hit his straps last year and with Harry Kane…” Cundy said to talkSPORT.

“Man United’s front three is pretty tasty on its day, but I think you could make a case for saying Spurs.”

“Son is brilliant, Son is probably I think the most underrated player in the league.”

“I don’t know if people really know how good he is, still. Everybody waxes lyrical about Mane and Salah, and rightly so, but nobody ever puts Son in that bracket.”

“Who is better, Son or Salah, right now? Son is just brilliant, he’s excellent, they both are, but Son is less selfish than Salah.”

“So I’d take Son.”

Tottenham have 12 goals scored in the Premier League so far and boast the joint-highest scored alongside Everton and Leicester City. Put in perspective, Son scored 50 per cent of those goals for Spurs.

It might be easy to look at Salah as the overall better player but we can’t deny that the Spurs man is in unrivalled form at the moment.
