    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has found some form after a series of lackluster performances in recent months.

    Son scored a goal and set up another in Spurs' 5-0 victory against Swansea City in London on Saturday.

    He struck his sixth goal of the English Premier League season in spectacular fashion during first-half extra time to give his team a 2-0 lead.

    When a shot by Christian Eriksen ricocheted off an opposite defender, Son swooped on the ball with an acrobatic mid-air strike that flew into the net.

    Son also recorded an assist for Harry Kane in the 49th minute.

    Son ended September with a tally of four goals and one assist, earning him EA Sports' English Premier League Player of the Month award. However, he subsequently went without scoring for a couple of months, leaving many fans worried that he was in a slump. His powerful performance on Saturday dispelled worries.
