The next opponent is Liverpool… Son Heung-min, ‘only one goal’ until the record of ‘double digits’ for 7 consecutive seasons

Son Heung-min, who scored a valuable equalizer, left only one goal in the record.

Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the 33rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 4:15 am (Korean time) on the 28th. Tottenham, who added 1 point, rose to 5th place in the league (54 points).

It was a very important match for Tottenham. Recently, in a situation where they suffered two consecutive league defeats, especially a 1-6 loss against Newcastle United, a reversal of the atmosphere was needed. For this purpose, the main players have been mobilized. Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, Richarlisson, Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Oliver Skip, Ivan Perisic, Christian Romero, and Hugo Lloris started. 

But it didn’t start well. They conceded the first goal in the 7th minute of the first half. Jadon Sancho, who received a pass from Marcus Rashford, fired a powerful right-footed shot, which led to a goal. He even allowed an extra goal at the end of the first half. In the 44th minute of the first half, Rashford, who did not miss Bruno Fernandez’s sharp penetrating pass, shook the net. 

Fortunately, they prepared a way to catch up early in the second half. In the 11th minute of the second half, Kane’s shot hit the defense and flowed. Poro finished this with a powerful shot. After the middle of the second half, Tottenham played an all-out war using several replacement cards. Dejan Kulusevski and Arnaut Danjuma were put in to attack.

Still needing one goal. A valuable equalizer came in the 35th minute of the second half. As the counterattack progressed, Kane handed a pass to Son Heung-min penetrating from the left. Son Heung-min calmly finished with a goal. Son Heung-min’s ninth goal in the league. In the end, Tottenham broke the chain of two consecutive losses by drawing with Manchester United, and at the same time laid the foundation for a rebound.스포츠토토

With this, Son Heung-min has only one goal left in the EPL double-digit score. This makes a lot of sense. If you score more than 10 goals this season, you can achieve the feat of scoring double digits for 7 consecutive seasons. In his first season with Tottenham, Son Heung-min consistently scored more than 10 goals in the league except for the 2015-16 season.

Now, Son Heung-min has five league games left. First, on the 1st of next month, I will go on an expedition to Liverpool. Son Heung-min has scored 4 goals in 13 matches against Liverpool so far. After that, on the 6th and 13th, we will face Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in turn. And after playing the home game against Brentford on the 20th, we will have our final game of the season against Leeds United on the 29th.
