Son Heung-min’s brutal verdict of Arsenal being top of the Premier League

Tottenham star Son Heung-min has said that he couldn’t care less about Arsenal being top of the Premier League ahead of the second north London derby of the season this weekend.

The Gunners will go into the game as slight favourites despite being the away side given their form as of late, with the club five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.

Tottenham, meanwhile, currently sit fifth and will be hoping to take a huge step towards Champions League qualification at the end of the campaign by beating Arsenal when the two clubs meet on Sunday.

But it seems Tottenham’s players are not concerned with the enviable league position of their rivals ahead of this weekend’s fixture, with Son saying to The Telegraph: “I’m not interested, to be honest.”

The 30-year-old added that Tottenham will be desperate to put things right against Arsenal after falling to a defeat at the Emirates earlier this campaign. He said: “We lost against them in the away game, so we have a lot of homework to make it good again.

“I think the fans were really disappointed when we lost at the Emirates, so I think we have a massive task at home. Everybody must be ready to throw their bodies in and we’re good to go.”

Son will be tasked with leading Tottenham’s attacking charge alongside Harry Kane against Arsenal, who will be also keen to claim all three points.

“Scoring goals is everything for a striker and this goal was important for my confidence, because it doesn’t matter how much you work hard if the ball doesn’t go in the net,” said Son.

“You get down because you have to be scoring goals or making assists for the team. The goal came at a very important time as well for me to get back on track.”

It remains to be seen whether Spurs will be able to beat Arsenal on Sunday, with Arteta’s side searching for a return to winning ways after playing a goalless draw against Newcastle in their last league game.
