Tottenham to offer Son Heung-min a new contract

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino could become the first non European manager to win 100 Premier League games

Tottenham have been handed a major boost with Jan Vertonghen back in contention after returning to training this week following an ankle injury.

Tottenham Hotspur, apparently affected early in the season by playing home games at Wembley, achieved a sixth straight win there by beating Huddersfield Town 2-0 with a double by Son Heung-min in the Premier League on Saturday.

Huddersfield's Jonas Lossl kept out a close-range effort from league top scorer Harry Kane before Son fired Spurs ahead with a neat finish in the 27th minute after rounding the keeper following a defence-splitting pass by Dele Alli.

Son was a constant threat to the visiting defence and almost set up a 17th-minute opener for Harry Kane, who was denied from point-blank range by Jonas Lossl.

The only save of note enforced upon the Frenchman was from a powerful 25-yard drive from substitute Tom Ince 10 minutes into the second half, and Spurs responded by doubling their lead within sixty seconds.

Son heaped praise on England striker Kane, who has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season and has already equalled last term's tally.

It leaves just one slot in the side and Son will be hoping he can beat Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko for a place on Saturday as Spurs play host to Huddersfield before facing Juventus on Wednesday. Christian Eriksen presided over the chance, and his shot was deflected wide of the goal by the wall. Pochettino should consider offering deals for the quartet, first.
