As expected, Son Heung-min is the solution for Tottenham 4 consecutive losses with 1 goal and 1 assist

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min performed well against the powerful Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as Manchester City), preventing the team from losing in a row.

Son Heung-min scored 1 goal and 1 assist in the 14th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) against Manchester City held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 4th (Korean time), leading to a 3-3 draw.

Thanks to Son Heung-min's performance, Tottenham, who had lost the last three games in a row, gained points in four games and finished fifth with 8 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses (27 points).

Tottenham, who had maintained an undefeated streak with 8 wins and 2 draws in 10 games since the start of this season, has recently been shaken by the departure of key players.

James Maddison and Mickey van der Pen, who have established themselves as key players after joining Tottenham this season, are injured, and Rodrigo Bentancur is also unable to play for a while due to injury. Van der Pen and Christian Romero, who were in charge of Tottenham's defense at the beginning of the season, were unable to play on this day as they were suspended for three games as a result of the ejection.

In a situation where weakening power was inevitable, the person Tottenham could trust was Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min has shown particularly strong performance so far, scoring 7 goals against Manchester City.

Manchester City is a team that plays soccer by increasing possession of the ball by moving up the line. This tactic exposes weaknesses in the space behind the defense, and Son Heung-min, with his quick focus and excellent finishing ability, took advantage of this.

On this day, Son Heung-min showed off his power in just 6 minutes. In a situation where the team was struggling under strong pressure from the opponent from the start of the game, Son Heung-min completely beat Jeremy Doku in the one counterattack situation and scored the first goal with a powerful right-footed shot.

With this goal, Son Heung-min scored a goal for the first time in 4 games since the 10th round against Crystal Palace.

Son Heung-min joined the defense three minutes later and scored an own goal, but he was not greatly shaken. Rather, he exerted strong pressure from the front and played a role in creating space for his teammates by dragging the opponent's defense.

In the end, Son Heung-min, who was putting pressure on Manchester City's defense, assisted Giovani Lo Celso's equalizer in the 24th minute of the second half when the game was tied 1-2. In a quick attack situation, Son Heung-min passed to Lo Celso and then moved to find space. As the Manchester City defense focused on Son Heung-min, space was created for Lo Celso, who leveled the game with a powerful left-footed mid-range shot.

Afterwards, Son Heung-min continued to pressure and link up from the front, leading the team to prevent consecutive losses. Thanks to Son Heung-min's performance, Tottenham, who had a draw with the powerhouse Manchester City, was able to face the next game with a sense of stability. 19가이드03
