As far as Premier League Player of the Month awards go, few players have been more deserving than Heung Min-Son.
The South Korean has become the first Asian to win the award after a superb September which saw him score four goals.

Replacing Harry Kane takes some doing, but Spurs have hardly noticed the absence of their main man thanks to Son’s exploits.
Mauricio Pochettino was also up for Manager of the Month following the Lilywhites’ unbeaten start to the season, but that accolade went to Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp.
To be fair, Son’s impact has also been felt in the Champions League, where he scored the winner in the 1-0 victory away to CSKA Moscow, a result which got Spurs right back in the competition and banished memories of the opening defeat to Monaco.
In the Premier League, though, he scored braces against both Stoke and Middlesbrough.
Tottenham fans will be absolutely delighted the club eventually opted against selling him to Wolfsburg in the summer, and after taking a brief break from international duty to focus on his domestic football, it’s certainly paid off.
