Jamie Redknapp makes an observation about Tottenham squad, gives verdict on Son Heung-min

Jamie Redknapp

Jamie Redknapp suggests that Harry Kane is the only match-winner in the current Tottenham Hotspur squad.

Jamie Redknapp has written on Skysports.com that Tottenham Hotspur do not have a match-winner other than striker Harry Kane.

“Apart from Harry Kane, who gets you on the edge of your seat when you watch them?” the former Spurs midfielder wrote on Skysports.com. “Not long ago, Spurs had so many different options to hurt the opposition.

“This season, we've seen that if you stop Kane from scoring you can stop Tottenham. Where are the match winners?”

While Redknapp does have a point about Tottenham not having enough players to hurt the opposition, he seems to ignore the fact that the North London outfit have a certain Christian Eriksen on their books.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder is arguably the most talented outfield player in the Spurs team, and he is certainly a match-winner.

The Denmark international has not made a great start to the 2015-16 campaign, creating five chances in two Premier League appearances.

However, over the past two years, Eriksen has been superb and has been a success in the Premier League.

During the 2013-14 campaign, the former Ajax star scored seven goals and created 68 chances in 25 league matches.

Last season, Eriksen scored 10 goals and created 83 chances in 38 Premier League appearances.

Son Heung-min verdict

Redknapp has also given his opinion on Tottenham’s signing of forward Son Heung-min from German club Bayer Leverkusen.

“They have finally brought another forward in, with Heung-Min Son arriving from Bayer Leverkusen,” the 42-year-old wrote on Skysports.com.

“While he may seem a bit of an underwhelming purchase to some Tottenham fans, he gives Pochettino another option and hopefully he can provide an added spark and take some of the pressure off of Kane."

Son is a highly-rated player who can play as a winger or as a forward.

The 23-year-old was one of the best attackers in the Bundesliga last season, helping Bayer finish fourth in the league table last season.

The South Korea international scored 11 goals and created 39 chances in 30 league appearances during the 2014-15 campaign.

Son had a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 54%, and won 30 headers, 49 dribbles and 30 tackles.
