Tottenham’s Son Heung-min reminisces about goal against Chelsea

The South Korean netted against the Blues for Hamburg, which was his first goal for the German side.

New Tottenham Hotspur signing Son Heung-min has been speaking out about scoring against Chelsea in the past, telling the club’s official website about his goal for Hamburg against the Blues.

The South Korea international netted in a pre-season friendly for the Bundesliga side against the Stamford Bridge club, which was his first strike for the German team and ensured a 2-1 win.

Son has expressed his desire to score against Jose Mourinho’s side again today and still remembers his first outing against Chelsea with fond memories.

“I remember scoring against Chelsea,” the Asian star told the club’s official website.

“It was my first goal in the stadium for Hamburg, I was 18 and I scored the winning goal for 2-1 so it was a great time.

“Before that most people didn’t know me but after I scored against Chelsea all the fans and the Korean papers were all talking about ‘Sonny, Sonny, Sonny’ so it was amazing for me.

“It’s always very important to play and score and I hope that this time I can do the same. We will see!”

Son has started life at White Hart Lane in impressive fashion and has recovered from a recent injury to win back a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line-up.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man will be in direct competition with the returning Erik Lamela for a starting berth today, but Son is likely to get the nod to feature from the right hand side of midfield.

Tottenham enter the game full of confidence after stretching their unbeaten Premier League run to 12 games last weekend and defeating Qarabag in the Europa League in midweek.
