Men's Football Attention turns to Liverpool as Tottenham swat away United

Tottenham 2-0 Manchester United

SON HEUNG MIN stressed the importance of beating Liverpool this weekend after Tottenham dismantled Manchester United at Wembley.

It took Christian Eriksen 11 seconds to put Spurs ahead on Wednesday night to once again highlight his importance to the side after an unusually quiet game against Southampton last month.

Tottenham refused to take their foot off the pedal and the second goal was inevitable, Kieran Trippier’s cross was met by his England teammate Phil Jones, with the United defender unable to clear for a corner and instead put the ball past his own goalkeeper.

For Son, Sunday’s tie at Anfield will be hard, but his side go into the game full of confidence.

“Sunday is very important. It’s a difficult stadium and a difficult game. When we play like today we have a great chance to win.”

While he didn’t get on the scoresheet, Son once again impressed against a side he grew up watching.

“I think we dominated the game and we had a lot of chances, especially in the second-half. To beat Manchester United is special. I grew up watching Manchester United because my idol and Korean teammate [Park Ji Sung] played there .

“I think we showed how good we are. The performance was unbelievable.”

Spurs are now two points off rivals Arsenal and Liverpool, who they have in their next two games.
