Alan Smith praises Tottenham Hotspur's attacking options

Tottenham Hotspur have shown signs of promise this season, and are unbeaten since the opening day.

Alan Smith has told the Telegraph that Tottenham Hotspur fans can look forward to seeing a 'vibrant' attacking team once Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit squad from which to select.

The former Arsenal striker has been impressed by the quality in Spurs' attacking ranks, with Heung-Min Son's display against Crystal Palace really catching the eye.

The South Korea international scored the only goal of the game against Palace, in what was an industrious performance, and Smith believes that Son's arrival at White Hart Lane has already made Spurs a more exciting attacking unit. 

"Once Christian Eriksen gets back up to speed and [Harry] Kane starts playing with a little more freedom, Son can look forward to taking part in a vibrant attack," he said. 

"Son’s winning goal against Crystal Palace on Sunday capped an afternoon full of endeavour and ideas, just what Spurs needed at a time when Harry Kane is searching for the scoring form that made him such a hero last season. But White Hart Lane might have another hero now."

Spurs relied heavily on Harry Kane to shoulder the goalscoring burden last season, and the youngster responded by netting 31 times over the course of the campaign.

However, having that level of reliance on one player was never going to be a productive long-term strategy, and Pochettino will be pleased to see Son making such an impact. 

The 23-year-old has scored three goals in his first three Spurs appearances, and his style seems perfectly suited to playing in England. 

Son is quickly becoming a fans' favourite at White Hart Lane, and will be able to endear himself even further to his new club's supporters if he can continue to have an impact in Spurs' next match, which comes against Arsenal in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
