‘Fans don’t deserve this’ -0 loss to Fulham

Heung-min Son has criticised Tottenham Hotspur’s “unacceptable” performance against Fulham.

His goals came either side of Sasa Lukic’s second-half strike, with a lacklustre Tottenham missing out on the chance to go fourth in the Premier League as a result of the defeat.

Son apologised to the Tottenham fans after the final whistle, describing the loss as “very tough”.

“It is very disappointing and very frustrating,” he told Sky Sports. “Everybody has to look in the mirror and say ‘it is my fault’.

“It was not good enough. We didn’t put in the effort we have put in this season. The performance, the attitude, was not good enough. Everyone needs a big wake-up call.”

The defeat to Fulham came just a week after Tottenham comfortably beat Aston Villa 4-0, with Son among those on the scoresheet.

“In the Premier League, if you are not ready you get punished,” he said. “Aston Villa are an amazing team, but so are Fulham.

“If you are not giving 100%, you get punished. You don’t get three points for free. This is two steps backwards. We now need to step forward.

“It is unacceptable, including me, it was unacceptable. We are representing Premier League teams, we are representing Tottenham.

“This was not close to what we have been doing this season. It is very sad to watch this. The fans don’t deserve this. They are coming here with positive energy and good vibes. Losing this was very tough. The players are very down.”

Tottenham remain two points adrift of the top four, but the gap would widen to five points if Villa defeat West Ham on Sunday.

Manager Ange Postecoglou refused to be drawn into a conversation about his team’s chances of finishing in the top four.

“It’s all over so we’ll just go for sixth,” he said. “What am I meant to say to that? We’re two points behind Villa. It’s 10 games to go, there’s so much football to play.

“I don’t worry about that stuff. It’s not about just falling into a place in the ladder. We could finish fourth, great, it’s nothing this football club haven’t done. It’s about how we play.”
