Son Heung-min, who is adjusting his senses, is it possible to score in the FA Cup?
Tottenham won 1-0 in an away game against Fulham in the 21st round of the ‘2022-23 English Premier League’ held at Craven Cottage on the 24th (Korean time).
Tottenham, who recently suffered two consecutive losses against Arsenal and Manchester City, who placed 1st and 2nd in the league, added 3 points in 3 games and maintained 5th place. The gap with fourth-placed Manchester United, the last line to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League, has now been narrowed to three points. 카지노사이트
On this day, Son Heung-min played as a left winger and led the attack with Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski.
However, Fulham’s defense was stronger than expected. After a power struggle in the middle line, Son Heung-min came down to the midfield and worked hard to join the defense.
Son Heung-min’s help came just before the end of the first half. Tottenham, who slowly pressed Fulham, handed a pass to Son Heung-min, and passed the ball to Kane in a situation surrounded by three defenders. Kane, who received this, slipped slightly to the right and connected it with a shot, splitting Fulham’s net.
Son Heung-min, who contributed his 3rd assist of the season, raised his offensive point in 4 games after scoring against Crystal Palace earlier this month (his 6th goal of the season).
Currently, Son Heung-min is recording 6 goals and 3 assists including the UEFA Champions League. It is true that the pace is definitely lagging compared to last season, when it was the top scorer.
However, there is still half of the season left, and if he picks up the pace in the future schedule, he can continue his double-digit scoring record.
Therefore, this assist against Fulham is different from the attack point that predicts Son Heung-min’s rebound. Son Heung-min showed a poor form in the club game that resumed after the World Cup break, but recently his condition is slowly recovering and he is regaining his confidence with an assist.
Tottenham’s next schedule is the FA Cup 4th round (Round of 32) against Preston North End. Preston belongs to the second division and is far behind Tottenham in terms of objective power.
Son Heung-min, who was replaced in the middle of the second half in the match against Fulham, is expected to participate in the FA Cup while managing his condition. It remains to be seen whether Son Heung-min, who regained his confidence with a long-awaited assist, will show his true worth with a goal this time.
