Former Chelsea and Liverpool star gives Son Heung-min verdict after Tottenham win vs Arsenal

By Matthew Holt

Former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has outlined his admiration for Spurs forward Son Heung-min, insisting he would be a "starter" for any Premier League side.

The 29-year-old found the net for the 21st time in the 2021/22 Premier League season against the Gunners on Thursday evening, as Antonio Conte's side eased to a 3-0 victory. With Conte's men in control following Rob Holding's early dismissal, Son, Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski all stamped their authority on the game, reducing the deficit in the league standings to just one point.

Champions League football is now the ultimate aim for Son and his Tottenham team-mates to secure this season, and many pundits and former players alike have shown their own admiration for 'Sonny' in recent days. With Burnley and Norwich City still to come for the Lilywhites before the completion of the 21/22 campaign, former Reds forward Sturridge took to social media to show his appreciation for one man in particular.

“I’ve once again randomly gotta show big love to @Sonny7,” Sturridge said on Twitter.

“I genuinely love watching this guy. I think he’d start in every team across the Premier League. Special special player.”

Former Chelsea striker Sturridge now plies his trade over in Australia after struggling since leaving the Premier League, with a spell in Turkey following his exit from Merseyside.

Finding the net on five occasions against Spurs during his career, the 32-year-old will be a keen on-watcher, with his former side in action against Chelsea in the FA Cup Final at Wembley.
