Tottenham star Heung-min Son: Everyone wants us to beat Juventus

Tottenham star Heung-min Son is convinced fans around the world want them to beat Champions League opponents Juventus.

Spurs host the second-leg on their round of 16 tie with the scores locked at 2-2.

Son said, “You can see how well Tottenham play," he said. “I think we deserve to reach the quarter-final or even get further.

“We are good enough. If we win everyone will be proud of Tottenham.

“We play at home and we are not scared. We just need to be confident – that's the most ­important thing."

Despite his double in victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, Son doesn't expect a guaranteed start against Juve.

“The gaffer has to choose 11 players." he said. “Sometimes it's difficult to choose because he feels sorry for those who aren't playing. But I have to accept it if the gaffer doesn't choose me.

“I just have to be ready if I come on or if I'm on the bench.

“Football is a team sport. I have to accept it and be ready to help my team-mates.

“Every single game is big for me. Of course if you don't start you are disappointed but we are a team so we have to support the starting XI."
