Kane, Alderweireld and Son will be vital for Tottenham after the international break

Taking a look at three players who will be vital for Tottenham Hotspur directly after the latest international break.

Tottenham Hotspur are enjoying a wonderful season, and with the latest international break upon us they find themselves fifth in the Premier League table, just five points behind current league leaders Manchester City.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has proved any remaining doubters wrong by developing a young side into one of the most exciting in the English top flight and at this rate they could be destined for real and sustained success.

That said Spurs’ stars will know the importance of maintaining their great form as soon as they return from international matters, so here we take a look at three players who will be key for them.

Heung-Min Son

South Korea international Heung-Min Son wasted little time showing what he could do following his summer move from Bayer Leverkusen, but he has recently been side-lined through injury and he has only just returned to competitive action.

However, after an outstanding cameo performance for his country last week and some much-needed minutes under his belt, Son could return to White Hart Lane ready to fire them even further up the table.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has put his poor form behind him and now looks like scoring practically every time he gets a chance in the box.

The England international will be vital for Tottenham in their upcoming matches against West Ham United and Chelsea and he has the skill – and now the confidence – to be the game-changer.

Toby Alderweireld

Summer signing Toby Alderweireld has been superb for Tottenham since coming in from Spanish side Atletico Madrid and the club’s defence has certainly benefitted from his arrival.

While Spurs have not kept as many clean sheets as they would have liked to, Alderweireld has slotted in seamlessly and if he can maintain that he could keep some very talented strikers at bay in the weeks ahead.
