Son Heung-min was not happy with the result against Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur

Son Heung-min’s 77th-minute goal led to some frayed nerves at Anfield on Sunday as Tottenham reduced the deficit on Liverpool.

From four to two in the space of just five minutes, but thankfully there was no further damage done to the Reds thereafter.

The South Korea forward now has seven goals in 16 appearances against Jurgen Klopp’s side, netting in each of his last five (Transfermarkt), and the departing LFC manager is on record as stating that failing to sign the now 31-year-old during his time in charge of Borussia Dortmund was a grievous error (The Mirror).

In that context, it may have intrigued Liverpool fans to witness the Spurs captain embracing Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker – and shaking hands with Luis Diaz – immediately after the final whistle of yesterday’s match.

It was probably nothing more than the various players showing mutual respect after an entertaining contest, but Son’s interactions were still interesting to see. Any chance he fancies a crack at a Premier League club in the northwest before he finishes his time in English football?

Nevertheless, Kane wasn’t the singular threat looming large, and the presence of Son Heung-Min, Kane’s erstwhile teammate and a player who has consistently delivered top-notch performances, may yet cause sleepless nights for the Reds. Son, it is fair to say, instils palpable dread in Liverpool and their soon-to-depart manager, Jurgen Klopp, every time they face him.

The South Korean forward has been instrumental in adding five goals in his recent six Premier League appearances against the Reds to his overall count of six goals from 14 matches representing Spurs, reports the Mirror. He also boasts of five goals from the same number of starts against Klop’s Borussia Dortmund team.

Even though Son never faced defeat while squaring off against Klopp in the Bundesliga when he played for Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen, his confrontations with the Reds tell another tale altogether.
