Som Heung-min’s describe the 22-years old player as the “most decisive player in world football” after inspiring him last night

Brennan Johnson played his part in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace after teeing up Son Heung-min’s goal at Selhurst Park
The Premier League table makes for very good reading for Tottenham Hotspur fans at present. Victorious at Selhurst Park on Friday evening as they secured a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, Ange Postecoglou’s men now have a five-point cushion at the summit of the Premier League table after ten games
While of course that lead will very likely be reduced this weekend with Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool all intent on closing in on Tottenham, the fact that Spurs are leading the way with eight wins and two draws so far is remarkable. For their eighth victory of the league season, Postecoglou’s team really had to dig in deep to come away from south London with maximum points.
Limited to very little in the first half with Crystal Palace frustrating them and ensuring they got next to no joy in the final third, Tottenham were handed a huge boost eight minutes after the restart when Joel Ward put the ball through his own net from James Maddison’s shot. Thirteen minutes later and it was 2-0 as Son Heung-min doubled the scoreline from close range.

The goal came from some excellent play from the visitors, with substitute Brennan Johnson playing a major role only two minutes after his introduction. Expertly heading Pape Matar Sarr’s long pass into Maddison’s path, the Wales international then linked up with his teammate and put the ball on a plate for the Spurs captain to finish off.

The first thing that Son did after scoring his eighth goal of the Premier League season was point to Johnson. Having then sprinted off towards the jubilant away end, Son decided to swivel and point at Johnson again before finally linking arms with the summer signing as they celebrated the goal together. The South Korean was certainly appreciative of the player’s key role in his strike.
It was a good showing from the 22-year-old in his time on the pitch as he created two chances for the team. Successful with seven of his eight passes, he also won two of his tackles and contributed defensively with three defensive actions.
