Besides the header shot in the first half… .’
Tottenham Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who was silent again, was harshly criticized by England’s ‘Football London’, giving him a rating of 4.
Son Heung-min played full-time in a match against Manchester City in the 7th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 20th (Korean time), but there was no goal or help.
Having scored 4 goals (2 assists) in the EPL this season, he only had 1 shot on target against Manchester City. In the 36th minute of the first half, he was the only one who connected Ben Davis’ left cross with a header. The ball headed in front of the opponent’s goalkeeper, Ederson.
Even in the last game against Arsenal (0-2 loss), Son Heung-min only had one effective shot, but at the time, soccer statistics media ‘WhoScored.com’ rated it the worst, giving it a rating of 5.74, lower than goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who committed an own goal. . 온라인카지노
Son Heung-min was strong enough to record 7 goals and 3 assists against Manchester City before. However, following the last game, he took off his face protection mask and played full-time, but it was sluggish, with only one successful shot out of seven ball competitions. ‘Football London’ commented on Son Heung-min, ‘There was a header toward the goal in the first half, but little else contributed.’ The rating of 4 is the lowest among starting players after Christian Romero (5.86) and Lloris (5.94). It is not strange that defensive resources Romero and Lloris received low scores as they conceded 4 runs that day. The fact that Son Heung-min received a poor evaluation means that he did not play his part in the attacking line.
The team also suffered a bitter defeat than ever before. Tottenham took the lead by two goals in the 44th minute when Dejan Klusevski scored the first goal, followed by Emerson Royal’s additional goal in added time. However, in the second half, Man City stumbled on the onslaught. In the 6th minute of the second half, Julian Alvarez conceded a goal, and 2 minutes later, Elling Hollan equalized. And in the 18th and 45th minutes of the second half, Riyad Mahrez gave consecutive shots and lost 2-4.
Tottenham kept 5th place with 10 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses (33 points), but the gap with 6th place Fulham (31 points) is only 2 points. The gap between 4th place Newcastle (38 points), which is the last line to advance to the next season’s Champions League, is 7 points. In addition, they recently faced the biggest crisis by recording 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses in 5 matches, including 2 consecutive losses in the EPL. On the other hand, Man City narrowed the gap with leader Arsenal (47 points) with 42 points (13 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses).
