13 Nov 2020

South Korean thanks fans and Spurs team-mates for helping him earn October's accolade

Son Heung-min has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award for October.

The Tottenham Hotspur winger scored in all three matches to end the month as the joint-leader in the race for the Golden Boot.

"Thanks for voting for me," he said after winning the award for a third time in his career.

"It's a big honour. I want to say thanks to my team-mates as I couldn't have won this without them."

Son's best performance came in Spurs' 6-1 win at Manchester United as he netted two goals and set up another.

The 28-year-old followed that with another goal and assist against West Ham United before heading in a late winner at Burnley.

He is the first Spurs player to win the award since Lucas Moura in August 2018.

Son was chosen by a panel of experts, club captains combined with a public vote.

He topped an eight-man shortlist that included team-mate Harry Kane, along with Che Adams, Conor Coady, Pablo Fornals, Jack Grealish, Thiago Silva and Kyle Walker.
