Spurs defender Sanchez: Son has been incredible

Tottenham centre-back Davinson Sanchez was full of praise for his teammate Heung-min Son after their FA Cup win over Preston.

Son scored two goals for Spurs, breaking his recent dry spell, to ensure they progressed to the last 16 of the competition.

Sanchez, who himself has struggled for game time this season, says that no one in the squad has any doubts about Son's form or quality.

“He's always been incredible for us," Sanchez said of Son to the London Evening Standard.

“For us, no-one has any doubts about Heung-min, he's a top player and a top guy.

“Of course as players we wait for this moment and the most important thing now is how he reacts. He's a very important player for this club. He gave a lot but still has a lot more to give us.

“We're behind him, the fans are behind him and I think football is behind him. Because [everyone in] football loves when he is on form and scores this type of goals, and shows he's alive."
