Son Heung-min, who is about to reach the 100-goal club, meets Southampton.
Tottenham Hotspur will play round 28 of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th. Tottenham are currently in 4th place in the league with 48 points메이저사이트.
It is an important match for Tottenham. Tottenham’s realistic goal this season, which has been eliminated from the European Champions League, FA Cup, and League Cup, and is virtually unrelated, is to defend fourth place. Newcastle United are chasing Tottenham by four points with two games less to play. Now Tottenham needs to win the remaining games as much as possible.
For Son Heung-min, the Southampton expedition is also important. Son Heung-min scored a goal in the last round against Nottingham Forest. This marked his 99th goal in his EPL career. Challenge the 100th goal against Southampton. So far, only 33 players have scored 100 goals in EPL history.
This season leaves a lot of regret for Son Heung-min. He scored 23 goals last season in the league alone and was the top scorer. But he couldn’t keep up that momentum this season. He is currently scoring 6 goals in the EPL. Because of this, public opinion for exclusion from the selection also increased. In fact, in mid-February, he appeared as a substitute in two consecutive league games.
In the midst of this, the league’s 100th goal can bring great motivation. In particular, Southampton is a team that gave Son Heung-min a pleasant memory. His first league game this season was also against Southampton, and he recorded one assist. In the second round of the 2020-21 season, he scored four goals against Southampton.
His career record against Southampton is 12 goals and 6 assists in 16 games. In the meantime, Tottenham has 10 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. If Son Heung-min can open Southampton’s goal again this time, he can personally achieve a record and increase Tottenham’s chances of maintaining 4th place in the league.
