The South Korea international has yet to hit peak form after finishing the 2021/22 campaign with six goals in five games, which saw him share the Premier League golden boot with Mohamed Salah.

Harry Kane, on the other hand, has made a fine start to the new season with two goals in three games to move 16 away from Jimmy Greaves' all-time goalscoring record for Spurs. Conte is not concerned about Son's lack of goals though. He added: "Sonny is enjoying his football every day. To think he is enjoying it more or less just because of one goal, it is ridiculous. "We are trying to create a problem when the problem is not there. I am not worried and, if anybody is going to be worried, it is the coach. "He is working well and in my opinion he is playing a good game. He has to continue to play that way. When he finds the goal, he is going to score and the situation will return to normal for everybody, but I am really surprised to be speaking about Sonny.

"If we have seven points and you are complaining about Sonny and, when he is good, I think we can do good things!" Son started all three of Tottenham's Premier League games this season and has come up with one assist. The player will have an opportunity to open up his goalscoring tally against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
