While Tottenham’s ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min failed to score a goal in two consecutive Premier League (EPL) games,
the team continued its undefeated streak in the league opener with a dramatic performance. 바카라사이트
Son Heung-min started as a frontline striker in the 2023-2024 EPL 5th round home game
against Sheffield United held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 16th (local time)
played until he was replaced by Brennan Johnson in the 35th minute of the second half.
Son Heung-min, who scored his first to third goals of the season
by scoring a hat trick in the fourth round against Burnley on the 2nd,
was unable to score an attack point in the first game of the national team’s
September two-game series in Cardiff, Wales, and Newcastle, England.
After giving up a goal to Sheffield in the 28th minute of the second half,
Tottenham came from behind to win 2-1 thanks to consecutive goals from
Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski in extra time in the second half.
Tottenham, who had 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 games since the start of this season’s league,
including the recent 4 consecutive wins, was in 2nd place (13 points).
Sheffield ranked 17th (1 point) with only 1 draw and 4 losses since the league opened.
After sending Harry Kane to Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga,
Tottenham used Richarlison as a starter at the front line at the beginning of the season,
On this day, following the 4th round match against Burnley,
Son Heung-min was selected as the top player.
Manor Solomon, James Madison, and Kulusevski appeared in the second line.
In the first half, Tottenham launched a one-sided offensive with nearly 70% possession and 12 shots,
including 7 effective shots, but ended in vain.
In the 21st minute of the first half, Son Heung-min received a cutback
from Solomon and fired a right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty arc,
which goalkeeper Wes Foderingham hit, and in the 34th minute of the first half,
Maddison’s left-footed ball from a similar position headed straight for Foderingham.
In the 39th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min got his head to Solomon’s cross from the left side,
but it missed to the right of the goal.
Sheffield, who was focusing on defense, threatened the goal with Oliver McBurney’s header
following Gustavo Amer’s right corner kick in extra time in the first half,
but Guglielmo Vicario was in front.
In a chaotic atmosphere where Sheffield wasted time and Tottenham’s attack was interrupted twice by balls flying from the stands,
Tottenham were active in the second half but were unable to finish the game.
Then, in the 28th minute of the second half, Sheffield struck.
Jack Robinson’s long throw-in from the right side went through some confusion,
Amer rushed in and opened the goal with his left foot from the left side of the penalty area.
Tottenham, who were on the defensive, took out Son Heung-min, Solomon,
and Pape Sar in the 35th minute of the second half and put in new Welsh attackers Johnson, Richarlison, and Ivan Perisic,
who joined this season, to aim for a goal.
Johnson, who was making his Tottenham debut, received a long pass from Yves Bissouma in the 41st minute of the second half
and shook the goal net with his right foot from the right side of the goal area, but was declared offside.
Tottenham performed a miracle with 12 minutes of added time in the second half,
reflecting Sheffield’s time delay.
When 7 minutes and 30 seconds had passed in added time,
Richarlison headed Perisic’s left corner kick and the substitutes worked together to balance Tottenham.
And in the 10th minute of extra time, they even succeeded in turning the game around by scoring one more goal.
The pass was developed smoothly from the left side,
Kulusevski finished with his right foot in the center of the pass sent by Richarlison inside the penalty area,
sending the stadium into a frenzy.
Even Son Heung-min, who went to the bench, came out and shared his joy.
Sheffield, who were quickly dragged down, bowed their heads as McBurney
was sent off for accumulating warnings at the end of extra time.
According to the WhoScored.com rating, which specializes in soccer statistics,
Son Heung-min scored only 6.0 points, the second lowest score in the team.
In the FootMob rating, he received 6.3 points, the lowest among Tottenham starting players.
