The South Korea international wants to score 100 goals for the club after netting his 50th in spectacular fashion at the weekend

Son Heung-Min says he hopes to score a century of goals at Tottenham after his wonder strike against Chelsea at the weekend.

The South Korea international ran the Blues ragged as Mauricio Pochettino's men won 3-1 at Wembley, ending the unbeaten start of their fierce rivals.

Son capped his performance with a fantastic solo goal, as he ran from the halfway line, beat both Jorginho and David Luiz, and fired past goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The goal was a fitting way for Son to mark his 50th goal as a Spurs player, and he is already thinking of the next half-century.

"Many people at Spurs congratulated me for it," he told reporters.

"I'm very grateful for that and now I'll try to score my 100th goal and more."

Son has played just eight Premier League games this season, missing encounters with Fulham, Manchester United and Watford due to his international commitments with South Korea.

The winger captained his side to Asian Games glory, thus earning himself exemption from military service in his homeland.

He has been eased back into action by manager Pochettino, and has completed 90 minutes just once this term.

And he remains tough on himself, insisting that he should have scored more than once against the Blues.

"Of course scoring goals is always great," he said. "But I feel sorry to my team-mates.

"I feel sorry because in the first half I should score more. My team-mates played really well. It was a very good game."

Spurs' victory over the Blues has taken them to third in the Premier League, five points behind leaders Manchester City.

They are three points ahead of north London rivals Arsenal as they prepare to take on the Gunners on Sunday, though Pochettino's side first face Inter in the Champions League on Wednesday.
