Son claims Tottenham are unlucky in their pursuit of silverware
A winning streak of five games in the Premier League has put Tottenham Hotspur in striking distance of league leaders Liverpool. Spurs drubbed Bournemouth5-0 on Boxing Day to leapfrog ahead of Manchester City to 2nd in the standings, with the Citizens suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Leicester City.
Tottenham’s Korean international forward Heung-min Son claims that his team are unlucky not to have got their hands on the Premier League for so long. Spurs finished in the top three for three successive seasons and were runners-up to Chelsea in the 2016-17 campaign.
The EFL Cup in 2007-08 was Tottenham’s last trophy and the Lilywhites are extremely unlucky in their pursuit of silverware, according to Son.
“We are just a bit unlucky for me, to be honest,” Son, who has hit seven goals in his last seven Premier League games, said to Sky Sports.
“We are close all the time. People are thinking, ‘Ah, it’s Spurs’, but we believe, always this team believes in the title, but sometimes you just have to have luck, with a long season.
“We can win, we deserve to win. The players deserve to win something. Of course, the pressure is going to be big [to win a title] but we have to just enjoy and bring positive energy, this is the most important.
“We are second in the table but still actually no one speaks about us, they talk about Man City and Liverpool. We are going our own way, it doesn’t matter. People talking about us or not, it doesn’t matter, we are just focusing on ourselves. We are going our way, and it’s a positive way.
“Football is about surprise. People never talk about Man City, they are going to lose, but they lost two in a row. That’s football. The season is long – if we keep on picking up points we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”
