Tottenham Hotspur wide forward Son Heung Min has declared the club are still in the hunt for the Premier League title with Man City and Liverpool.
The South Korean international scored Spurs’ first goal in the 2-1 come-from-behind victory against Watford on Wednesday night, a result that brought them closer to the summit of the table after their main rivals dropped points midweek.
Son is adamant that the club are still “going for it”, despite being seven points behind the league leaders:
“I don’t care if people ignore Tottenham. I don’t care if people say Liverpool or Manchester City are going to win the title. We’re still there, we’re going for it, and we’ll see what’s going to happen at the end of the season,” Son told the Mirror.
“Maybe I’m boring, because I always answer the same way – of course they are both very good sides, like us. But we can only focus on ourselves, and in every single game winning three points is the most important thing.
“The season still has a long way to go and so many things can happen. You can’t even imagine what will happen – we just believe in our own game and we want to win as many points as possible.”
Spurs currently occupy third place in the Premier League table, two points adrift of Manchester City and another seven off first-placed Liverpool.
