Son Heung-Min claims his teammate Guglielmo Vicario deserves more credit in Tottenham Hotspur’s latest victory against Crystal Palace.

Ward’s own goals and Son’s thunderous strike helped in Tottenham’s 2:1 win at Selhurst Park. But the Korean international believes Vicario needs more credit for his role in this victory.

Both Jordan Ayew and Odsonne Edouard kept Vicario busy throughout the match as he made some excellent saves in the first-half. Son’s highlights his teammates credits in their latest Premier League victory of this campaign.

Speaking in a interview with SPURSPLAY, Son said :-

“Before we score without Vic’s saves we are going behind and when you go behind in this stadium, you know what is going to happen. I think big credit to Vic for making unbelievable saves.

“I am enjoying every single moment (with Vicario) because he made a good save, is playing out well and it is fantastic to have him behind the goal.

“Obviously any game we are going to face chances and shots on target, but when you have Vic behind us you are just very comfortable he is going to make unbelievable saves, which he did.

“Big, big credit to Vic today and also the way he play with the feet is fantastic. It brings so much to the team and I am very, very happy to have him in the team.”

Vicario termed Son as “top-class” after his goal against Palace

Son Heung-Min scored the second goal for Tottenham Hotspur, which made all the difference.

Vicario had a fine view of the goal and labelled it as “top masterclass”. He said :-

“I think our second goal was a top masterclass of football from the back. Find the spare man and then he (Son) attacks the right space.

“It is easy for him to come to the back and score this kind of goal. It is a big situation we work on during the week, so we’re happy for that and we have to keep going, keep improving on that because we can do it. Of course we enjoy the win, we take the rest of the week and then we go again.”
