Tottenham's Son Heung-Min deserves more credit for form - Pochettino

The Spurs boss said: "First of all we need to move to the new stadium".

Swansea will hand a late fitness test to Tammy Abraham after he was forced off with a stomach injury against Watford at the weekend but Ki Sung-yueng and Kyle Bartley are both out. Even without Kane this is an incredibly talented squad, and they have the firepower to tear the Swans apart.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Son Heung-min would be getting press if not for Harry Kane. Spurs are still missing Toby Alderweireld, whose absence explains their defensive struggles by comparison to last season's lofty standards, but they should neutralise a fairly toothless Swansea attack.
Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama are also doubts, while Toby Alderweireld remains out for the long-term.
The England global forward has not completely shrugged off his illness and will now start on the bench as he attempts to become the first player in 71 years to score hat-tricks in three successive English league games. He has scored four of his six league goals this season in the past six games, and has started eight of Spurs' last ten Premier League matches.
Regardless of how many times Harry Kane gets linked away from Tottenham and Wembley, everyone takes the rumours with a pinch of salt.
Llorente's 15 goals last season were arguably the main reason why Swansea was able to stay in England's top division.
