Pedro Porro and Dele Alli showed their loved for Son Heung-min on Instagram following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest
Days after the debacle against AC Milan in the Champions League, the under-fire Antonio Conte responded with three points to further boost their chances of securing a top-four finish.
It has been a pretty difficult season for Son, with only six Premier League goals to his name this term and only two when he started.
But the £22 million forward (FourFourTwo) was putting the cherry on top of Tottenham’s cake against Steve Cooper’s men when he netted his side’s third after Harry Kane’s brace.
That’s a six-point lead for fourth-placed Spurs in the Premier League table, with fifth-placed Liverpool falling to a 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth during the earlier kick-off.
Nonetheless, in the comments section of Son’s IG post. Porro, who assisted Kane for his opener, posted ‘what a player’, whilst Dele Alli sent his former teammate love heart emojis and Robbie Keane applauded the 30-year-old.
CONTE STILL ON HIS WAY OUT?
It’s going to be interesting to see what all of this means for Antonio Conte and his future at Tottenham Hotspur.
It was all going off after their Champions League exit. Richarlison was firing shots, Harry Kane realised he was having another trophyless season despite all his goals, whilst some Spurs fans were singing Mauricio Pochettino’s name.
Despite that win, it still seems as though Conte and Spurs will part ways in the summer.
After all, he still needs to sign a new deal and show that he is true to this long-term project at the club, and the same applies to Kane.
And whilst a win has lifted the mood in the camp, every Tottenham fan is fully aware that they can be brought back down to earth in next to no time.
