Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham)’s shoulders are getting heavy again.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Liverpool in the 34th round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season to be held at Anfield in Liverpool, England at 0:30 on the 1st of next month (hereinafter Korean time). Currently, Tottenham is 5th with 54 points (16 wins, 6 draws, 11 losses), and Liverpool, who has played one game less, is in 7th place with 53 points (15 wins, 8 draws, 9 losses).
Tottenhamㅋㅋㅋ벳 are already far from the fight for fourth place. The gap with 4th place Manchester United (60 points), which has played two less games, reaches 6 points. Statistical media’Five Thirty Eight’ predicted that Tottenham’s chances of advancing to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season were less than 1%.
Still, it is a game that must be won. If you slip further here, you may not be able to step on the stage of the UEFA Europa League, let alone the UCL. 6th place Aston Villa (54 points) and 8th place Brighton (49 points) are also terribly chasing, so in the worst case, they could fall to 8th place.
Especially as they are right next to Liverpool on the table, this match is a 6-point match. Depending on the result of the confrontation, the fate of both teams is likely to be divided.
Ahead of the game, acting manager Ryan Mason put his hopes on Son Heung-min. He said, “Sonny (Son Heung-min’s nickname) is the best when it comes to the defensive line and space. In the last match against Manchester United, a goal came from a combination of Kane with the ball and Sonny who survived,” suggesting that he would use Son Heung-min aggressively.
“It’s disappointing that Sonny hasn’t been able to score more goals all season, but the best thing is that he’s finally back and scoring again,” said Mason.
He did not hide his anticipation. Acting Mason said, “For strikers, that’s the key. Luck is bound to change at some point. As goals are scored, he finds his rhythm and starts scoring again. I hope Sonny will be the key in the remaining five games.” I asked Min to score.
Son Heung-min has been showing off his hot scoring sense lately. He struggled with a different role and an orbital fracture at the beginning of this season, but scored a valuable equalizer against Manchester United on the 28th and started scoring in four consecutive home games. This is why Acting Mason is paying attention to his toes once again.
