Son Heung-min scores one, assists one in North London Derby Updated: 2020-12-07 17:26:58 KST

Time now for 'This Week in Sports' and for that we have our sports editor Paul Neat joining us in the studio. Paul, Son Heung-min was as it again over the weekend, another wonderful display from him.

Yes, indeed. 'Son-sational', you could say. A goal and an assist from Son in Sunday's North London Derby win over Arsenal.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring after 13 minutes with a wonderfully-struck shot from more than 20 yards out. Harry Kane assisting Son once again.
Scorer then turned provider in first half stoppage time as Son laid the ball into the path of Harry Kane who made it 2-0.
The win keeps Tottenham top of the Premier League on goal difference.
Spurs were in action on Thursday night toodrawing 3-3 against LASK of Austria to secure a place in the Europa League knockout stages. Son on the score sheet for Spurs.
Son Heung-min is now on 10 league goal for the season, 13 overall.

That's double figures for Son for five consecutive seasons. And Spurs manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Sonny and Harry Kane, I understand?

Yes, he was. Mourinho praised their work ethic in particular. He also said that the pair have a "very good sense of balance" and do "incredible" tactical work when the team doesn't have the ball.

Moving on to football in Asia, the AFC Champions League is still being played and we have two K League teams in the knockout stages?

Yes we do. Ulsan Hyundai and Suwon Samsung Bluewings have both made it to the knockout stages of this year's AFC Champions League.
Ulsan won Group F after five straight wins and on Sunday booked their place in the quarter finals beating Melbourne Victory 3-0.

Meanwhile, Suwon Bluewings made it by beating group leaders Vissel Kobe 2-0 on Friday. The Bluewings play Yokohama F. Marinos tonight at 11pm Korea time looking to make it two K League teams in Thursday's Quarter finals.

Good luck to both teams.
As you know, social distancing guidelines in the South capital area have been raised to level two.five. What impact does this have on professional sports?

Yes, bad news. It means that all professional sports matches in the Seoul area must be played behind closed doors.
The professional football, baseball and golf seasons are finished for the year in South Korea so this impacts KBL basketball and KOVO volleyball.
Volleyball games were already being played behind closed doors as a precaution after the guidelines were raised to level two on November 24th.
KBL basketball had been allowing 10-percent of capacity but some clubs decided to play games behind closed doors.
But this is now mandatory and affects 5 KBL basketball clubs and 10 volleyball clubs in the capital area.

And finally, to golf and it was another stellar showing from some of South Korea's top female golfers in the LPGA Volunteers of America Texas Shootout over the weekend?

Yes, indeed. Three of the top five are South Korean.
One of whom is Park In-bee who regained her lead on the tour's money list following a runner-up finish over the weekend.
Park ended in a three-way tie for second at the Volunteers of America Classic in The Colony, Texas, on Sunday local time.
She began the final round tied for the lead with fellow Korean Ryu So-yeon and Korean-American Yealimi Noh at four-under.
All three shot one-under 70 in the final round to end at five-under 279.
American Angela Stanford won at seven-under 277 total.
The U.S. Open is due to take place this Thursday 10th December so all eyes will be on which South Korean star can claim victory

Well that is something for us to look forward to. Thank-you for that, Paul. We shall see you next week.
