Heung-Min Son has been named as your HSBC Player of the Match following his superb hat-trick in our 5-2 win at Burnley on Saturday.
Picking up his first Player of the Match award of the season, Sonny claimed 83 per cent of the vote – the greatest margin of victory for the prize so far this season – in an exclusive poll on our official app straight after the game.
Our Club captain claimed the award with a goalscoring masterclass, leading the line by example to bag his fifth Spurs match ball as we came from behind to record a dominant victory at Turf Moor and continue our unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign.
Without a goal in 2023/24 heading into our trip to Lancashire, our number seven was named in the middle of our front three from the start and it wasn’t long before he opened his account with a sublime deft dink to bring us back on level terms 16 minutes in.
Curling efforts from Cristian Romero and James Maddison either side of half-time turned the game around before the South Korea international stole the show with two clinical finishes in three second-half minutes to cap an excellent performance.
Sonny’s hat-trick at Turf Moor was his fourth in England’s top flight, with each coming at different grounds after also completing this feat at St Mary’s Stadium, Villa Park and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
