Son speaks in defense of Teammate amidst furious criticism after beating Newcastle 3-0after Newcastle win

Tottenham’s Heung-min as captain After the 4-1 victory over Newcastle, Son reiterated the high expectations his teammates should have for themselves.

After Spurs’ midweek loss to West Ham, Son called the team “soft” following a “unacceptable” performance that saw the team lose five straight games despite always being in the lead, setting a new Premier League record.

The Korean scored a late penalty on Sunday to help Tottenham defeat Newcastle with three crucial points thanks to goals from Richarlison and Destiny Udogie.

And Son addressed his remarks following the game, saying that his team should always expect more.

In a post-match interview with Sky Sports, he stated, “Yeah, 100 percent,” in reference to the significance of having high standards.

“As Premier League players, you have to expect more and more from one another. There is never enough; just take a look at those incredible teams that never give up, regardless of how many victories they have in a row.

“They should be pleased, and today was just another excellent lesson to carry over into the next game with this kind of strength. Then, I believe we’ll be an extremely strong team.”

Son claimed Richarlison was more worthy of the title despite receiving the official Man of the Match award at Tottenham Stadium for his two assists and goal.

The 31-year-old did not score from the spot until the 85th minute after being brought down by Martin Dubravka. This was Tottenham’s first penalty since regular taker Harry Kane left for Bayern Munich.

He asked, “Should we call Harry back?”

“I practiced constantly, even with Harry present. It all comes down to practice; you never know what will happen.

Of course, Harry taught me as well. It was our first, I hope [for a few more].”
