Heung-Min Son says that Tottenham fans are finally seeing the best of him on the pitch after four goals in as many appearances this season.

The South Korea international scored both goals in Spurs' 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday, after netting twice in a 4-0 rout of Stoke City earlier this month.

I feel very good now - I felt very good last season as well but I got injured.

Last season was my first in the Premier League and now I want to do better.

It's not finished - I look forward and will work hard every day for Tottenham.

Chelsea 'a great team only on paper', admits Conte

Antonio Conte criticised his Chelsea players for failing to justify their reputations after Arsenal surged to a 3-0 win over the Blues on Saturday.

Chelsea capitulated in 40 first-half minutes at the Emirates Stadium as goals from Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil gave the Gunners a first Premier League win over their London rivals since October 2011.

The defeat leaves Chelsea eighth in the table after consecutive defeats to top-four rivals, and Conte held nothing back in his post-match assessment.

If someone thinks this season is easy, we must work a lot to improve and change the situation because now we are a great a team on the paper, not on the pitch.

I prefer to be a great team, not on paper, but also on the pitch because the pitch speaks the truth, the pitch is the most important thing for us. Not the words, not the paper. We must change this.

Last season was a bad season and last season we were a great team on the paper. This team we want to be a great team also on the pitch.

There are many difficulties but if we understand this we are in a good position to recover and to change the situation.

Guardiola: De Bruyne injury 'a pity' for Manchester City

Pep Guardiola says it was "a pity" that Kevin De Bruyne was forced off with a hamstring injury during Manchester City's 3-1 win over Swansea City, but admits he doesn't yet know how serious the problem is.

De Bruyne has been in rampant form so far this season and notched two assists for City at the Liberty Stadium before limping off the pitch in the 81st minute.

From the way he reacted, I think it's a muscular injury but I am not a doctor.

I don't know how serious it is so we will travel back and then see what the doctor says.

It's a pity as Kevin is an important player for us. That's why we have to have a big squad as everyone will help us.
