Son Can Shine Even Without Partner In Crime
Tottenham are up against it, but so were Chelsea five minutes ago. Honeymoon periods can be very short in this league as Tuchel may find out.
The Premier League is an unpredictable place at the moment so we should probably look at how the odds are drawn up closer than ever. For example, Son Heung-Min is the best goalscorer on the pitch, based on this season’s stats - and he’s a tidy best price 9/4 to net anytime with Paddy Power.
The South Korean has had a brief lean spell, but with 16 goals for Spurs already in 2020-21, there’s no doubting his credentials. Son needs to step up in the absence of Kane, but he has certainly done it before.
He faces a Chelsea team under new management, but a home win over Burnley doesn’t mean Thomas Tuchel has it all cracked. 50 Premier League goals conceded since the start of last season is dismal - Mourinho still has quality in his ranks.
