London - Son Heung-min has won the Premier League's player of the month award, becoming the only two-time recipient so far this season.

The South Korean netted five goals in six league games in April to keep second-place Tottenham on target for its highest finish in 54 years.

Son was the first player from Asia to collect the league's monthly accolade when he won the September vote of experts, captains and fans.

Tottenham have three games remaining this season and Sunday's game against Manchester United is the London club's last match at White Hart Lane.

Son has scored 20 goals this season and if he scores another he will become the highest-scoring South Korean in a single European season, overtaking Cha Bum-kun's haul at German club Bayer Leverkusen in 1985-86.
