A new evaluation has emerged about the performance of Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham).
Tottenham won 1-0 in the 22nd round of the ‘2022-23 season English Premier League (EPL)’ against Manchester City at Tottenham Hotspur 메이저사이트Stadium in London, England on the 6th (Korean time). Tottenham scored 39 points (12 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses) and narrowed the gap with 4th place Newcastle (40 points) to 1 point.
Son Heung-min, who started the match, shook the Man City defense by taking a threatening move that day. Although he did not score, he recorded one key pass, including one shot on target, and one big chance making, according to the soccer statistics website ‘Sofa Score’.
Son Heung-min is recording 4 goals and 3 assists in 18 league games this season. He is different from last season when he scored 23 goals and became the top scorer. As a result, the voice of criticism towards Son Heung-min increased, and Arnaud Danjuma, an attacking resource, was recruited in the winter transfer market.
Nevertheless, Weham showed faith in Son Heung-min. According to England’s ‘Football Insider’, John Weham said, “I think Son Heung-min played very well against Man City. He overcame the competition with the defenders and returned to his best form from the side, driving the ball.”
“That created a space for other players to infiltrate. It was the same in the match against Preston. This is the role Son Heung-min is currently playing. Maybe it won’t challenge the top scorer, but it could be an outstanding season in other ways,” he explained about Son Heung-min’s role.
Weham said, “I hope Son Heung-min hits the key game month, but I’m not too worried right now. Scoring will explode soon. Although he is playing well overall, he is being criticized for his low number of attack points.”
