Son has not always got the credit he deserves for his performances, but the South Korean international has started to take a lot of acclaim recently.
Son has hit the headlines, with his good form attracting a lot of attention.
And Lampard has claimed that Son will be vital for Spurs tonight, in their match against Juventus in the Champions League.
Harry Kane will carry much of his side’s goalscoring responsibility, but Lampard believes that Son could also cause problems to Juventus’ defence.
“If Kane can’t provide the goals, then they still have quality players behind him that can like Heung-min Son,” Lampard said.
“He has been underrated for a few seasons but I think that sentiment has started to turn.
“All eyes have been drawn to Dele Alli and Kane but what Son has done over the past year or two is complement his quality with the other players.
“He brings a bit of speed, takes people on one v one. No one else really has that in the team. He can create things out of nothing for them.”
Spurs head into tonight’s game as slight underdogs, given Juve’s highly impressive home record.
However, Tottenham have already beaten Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in this season’s Champions League, which should give them confidence.
Son goes into tonight’s game, having scored 11 goals and claimed eight assists across all competitions for Spurs so far this season.
