Tottenham striker Heung-Min Son would play ahead of Sadio Mane at Liverpool and start for Pep Guardiola’s Man City as he hunts down Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot battle, talkSPORT has been told


Tottenham Hotspur superstar Heung-Min Son would start for all Premier League sides, including Liverpool and Man City.

That’s the belief of Premier League club 100 member Darren Bent, who believes he’s now a more consistent performer than Sadio Mane.

The South Korean forward scored a stunning hat-trick to blast Aston Villa in a 4-0 win at the weekend.

It saw Spurs, who had endured a difficult first half, despite Son’s opening goal after three minutes, pull three points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal.

That’s six strikes and one assist for the player in his last three appearances and he now has 17 Premier League goals this season – just three behind Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Salah’s team-mate Mane has scored five goals in his last eight starts for the Reds, including one in the 2-2 draw with Man City.

But former Spurs striker Bent believes Son will edge out the Senegalese sensation thanks to his consistency.

“Yes, I think he does. [get into any Premier League side] now,” said the former England international. “The only exception was I always used to think he would get ahead of Sadio Mane?

“Probably a few seasons ago, not last season because Mane had a little less good year, but Heung-Min Son is stepping up all the time.

“He scores goals, creates goals and can finish with both feet.

“I think on that left side he would fit into any Premier League team. City too.

“He carries such a goal threat. He’s smart with his moves, he consistently scores goals every season. I think you would put it in there.
