Despite leaving the club in the summer to join a title rival, the Englishman received a good reception from the home fans throughout the game, and also went on to reveal he hopes his former Tottenham teammates can win their FA Cup semi final against Manchester United and go on to win the cup.

"To be competing in the Premier League since I was 19, and to play all the games I played in the Premier League, to not win the Premier League, it was a bit devastating for me not to have won it with Tottenham", the 27-year-old told reporters.

Son found the net 21 times last term, having only hit the target on eight occasions in his first season in England in 2015-16. You always say: 'is the grass greener on the other side?' and it looks that way.

"We need to continue". It needs to be a number of years before we can be regarded as one of the top teams ever to have played in the Premier League.

Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts has stuck up for defender Kyle Walker and insisted he deserves his title success with Manchester City.

With Manchester United suffering a 1-0 defeat to West Brom, City managed to seal the title without kicking a ball, while Guardiola was busy playing golf. So, please God, they go and win it because their lads deserve it. "We've had probably the toughest period, definitely in my career at the club".

He added: "We've gone from doing so well in all competitions to take three losses, and sometimes it felt like it was a relegation battle in there with the mood".

"We're all winners and we want to win and in those games unfortunately we didn't, but we put that right". That shows the character and the belief in the standard of players in the dressing room.

Son has been a key man for Spurs this season, scoring 18 goals in all competitions and starring in a central position when Harry Kane was out with injury earlier in the campaign.
