Son Heung-min was highly critical of Tottenham Hotspur after losing 3-0 to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday. 

Spurs were second best to the home side throughout the contest as Rodrigo Muniz scored a brace either side of a Sasa Lukic goal.

The South Korean winger says the defeat has to be a “big wake-up call” after the team failed to score in a game for the first time under manager Ange Postecoglou.

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

“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.

“In the Premier League if you are not ready you get punished. Aston Villa are an amazing team, but so are Fulham. If you are not giving 100 percent 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.”

It’s a lost opportunity for Spurs, who could have leapfrogged Aston Villa into the top four of the Premier League with a win. The Villans can go five points ahead with a win over West Ham on Sunday, although the north London outfit do have a game in hand.
