Tottenham legend Micky Hazard believes Son Heung-min could be back at his best now

Son Heung-min fired Tottenham Hotspur past Preston North End on Saturday night and has now earned praise from Spurs legend Micky Hazard.

Spurs made their way to Lancashire for a potential banana peel win over Championship team PNE.

The first half was a frustrating affair as Spurs struggled to break through a determined North End defence.

However, Tottenham took over in the second half when Son pulled in a lovely long-range shot.

Son added a second with a lovely turn and finish before new signing Arnaut Danjuma scored on his Tottenham debut.

Tottenham are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 win without Harry Kane even stepping onto the pitch.

Micky Hazard praises Tottenham star Son Heung-min

You feel like Son needed this kind of game.

The South Korean superstar shared the Premier League golden boot with Mohamed Salah last season as he netted 23 times.

This season has been much more difficult for Son, whose confidence seems to have taken a hit.

Four goals in 19 Premier League games is an alarmingly low tally for a player of Son’s quality.

Many theories have been put forward; Maybe the heavy workload of the last few years is catching up to him, maybe Ivan Perisic behind him means his place to cut inside is crowded, maybe his face injury was a big problem.

With just one goal in six Premier League games, Son needed a big performance somewhere and it came on Saturday.

Yes it was against a league side but Son showed outstanding quality with both goals to see Tottenham through.

Spurs legend Micky Hazard has taken to Twitter to praise Son, suggesting he looked good throughout Saturday’s game in which he was used as a central striker.

Hazard now hopes Son can truly return to his best form as he believes that two-goal performance could be the real catalyst for improvement.
