Son Heung-min's double gives him 5th straight match with a goal and 50th, 51st EPL goal Updated: 2020-02-17 10:01:26 KST

Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean forward Son Heung-min is on fire, and there's little any one can do to stop him finding the back of the net these days.
With his London side taking on Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park, Son made it five straight scoring games by slotting the ball home right before the end of the first half giving Tottenham the 2-1 lead going into the second 45.
The goal gave him his 8th EPL goal of the season and his 50th overall goal in England's top flight.
But with the match tied 2-2, the South Korean found the back of the net again in injury time, giving him his second goal of the match, and Tottenham the 3-2 victory.
The game winner meant he now has 9 EPL goals this season, and 16 in all competitions.
Having joined Tottenham in 2015, Son has scored 51 goals in 151 EPL appearances, and has long been one of the most consistent players on the team.
After starting the 2019-2020 season a bit slower than usual, Son continues to show that he's the best Asian player in the world, after becoming the top Asian finisher in voting for the prestigious Ballon d'Or Award in 2019.
The captain of the South Korean men's national team came in 22nd place among 30 nominees in balloting for the annual award recognizing the world's best football player, as he was also the first Asian player to be nominated since Younis Mahmoud of Iraq in 2007.
