Are Manchester City unbeatable? – ‘They’re still only human’, insists Tottenham star Heung-Min Son
In-form Heung-Min Son believes Tottenham have a great chance of ending Manchester City’s record-breaking winning run on Saturday – telling talkSPORT: ‘They’re still only human!’
Spurs travel to the Etihad Stadium this weekend hoping to put a stop to City’s record run of 15 straight wins in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s side have steamrollered their opposition in the first-half of the season and many consider the title race to be over already with City sitting 11 points clear at the summit.
However, Tottenham have been tipped to be the side to break Pep’s winning streak, and Son insists they are more than capable of beating the runaway leaders when they clash this weekend.

Speaking to talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams, the South Korean ace said: “In football, you never know. Of course Man City are strong, they’re very good and they score a lot of goals.
“But we’re a strong team as well, we score goals as well.
“Football is 11 against 11, there’s one ball, every player has two legs – they’re only human, you know?
“It’ll be difficult, but I think they are under more pressure than us because they are 15 games unbeaten.
“We need to go there and believe in ourselves, just play our game and enjoy it and I think we’ve got a great chance to win.”
Son scored for the fourth game running in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over Brighton, taking his tally to eight goals this season, and his fine form is perhaps a good omen for Spurs.
Tottenham have not lost against City since Son’s arrival from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, and Spurs’ No.7 is keen to keep that run going when they travel to the Etihad on Saturday.
“Yeah, this is a good thing! I want to keep it like this – I don’t want to lose against anyone and if we lose I’m always angry and unhappy.
“I want to win against any opponent and I’m not scared of any team.
“I think we can go there and have a great chance to make something happen.”
