Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has been recognized by a supercomputer as one of the best players in the English Premier League.
British bookmaker BetVictor said Wednesday Son was included in the EPL team of the season with 72.99 points in a supercomputer analysis of each player's individual performances including goals, assists and chances created.
Other forwards chosen were Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (86.44 points) and Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez (71.82).
Son became the first Asian player to win the EPL's Golden Boot, an award presented each season to the league's top scorer. Son scored 23 non-penalty goals and shared the award with Salah.
Son has already been included in other selections of the league's 11 best-performing players by the Premier League, Sky Sports and BBC Sports.
