“Son Heung-min (31) is a player who has just recovered from an injury. If one player is 100% physically fit and the other is 70%, we have no choice but to choose the best.” 메이저사이트
Tottenham head coach Christian Stellini (49) said this ahead of the English Premier League (EPL) Chelsea match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the 26th. This implied the exclusion of Son Heung-min from the selection. In this match, Son Heung-min was named on the third substitute list this season and played an active role for a short time, but left a strong impression on the ground.
Tottenham beat Chelsea 2-0 in the match against Chelsea in the 25th round of the EPL held on this day with consecutive goals from Oliver Skip (23) and Harry Kane (30). Tottenham, who scored the first goal in the first minute of the second half, took out Dejan Kulusevski (23) and put in Son Heung-min in the 34th minute of the second half. Son Heung-min made his presence known in just three minutes. In the 37th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min raised a sharp cross with a corner kick, and the ball hit Eric Dyer (29) in the head and landed in front of Kane, who was standing to the left of the Chelsea goal. Kane calmly pushed the ball in with his right foot and scored a key goal. With this victory, Tottenham widened the gap with Newcastle in 5th place to 4 points.
Son Heung-min, who showed his fighting spirit at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, returned to the league after the tournament and is unable to show the same image as before. The evaluation continued that he was tired of leading his injured body and digesting the murderous schedule. Son Heung-min plays the role of a ‘super joker’ by stepping on the ground as a substitute in two consecutive games. This season, Son Heung-min scored 3 goals against Leicester City in September of last year, the first substitute appearance of the season, and scored his 5th goal of the season in 4 minutes against West Ham on the 20th.
