Reporter Ahn Gyeong-nam = Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), whose performance is recovering, aims straight at the goal against Leicester City, who defeated him with a hat-trick in the first half of the season.
Tottenham will play an away match against Leicester at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England on the 12th at 0:00 am (Korean time) in the 23rd round of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season.
It is a welcome opponent for Son Heung-min.
This is because in the first confrontation with Leicester in the first half of this season, the beast girl scored and scored the third hat-trick of his personal career.
Son Heung-min, who came as a substitute in the second half of the match, scored three goals with explosive speed and sharp shooting.
Son Heung-min was the first player in Tottenham club history to achieve a hat-trick as a substitute.
Son Heung-min, who tied for the EPL top scorer with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) last season with 23 goals (7 assists), had difficulty scoring goals this season due to intensive checks on opponents and tactical changes within the team.
Then, he scored a hat-trick against Leicester and turned on the green light for resurrection.
But after that, injuries took hold. He suffered an orbital fracture injury in the UEFA Champions League group stage match against Marseille (France) in November and was unable to play in the league for a while.
After twists and turns, Son Heung-min, who took the lead in Korea’s advance to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup wearing a mask, returns to his team and gradually improves his performance.
Last month, in the 19th round match against Crystal Palace, the league scorer was restarted after about 4 months, and the English Football Association (FA) Cup match with Preston also continued the upward trend with multiple goals.
He did not score a goal in the previous home game against Manchester City, but helped Tottenham win 1-0 by stirring up the opponent’s defense.
Even the enemy manager, Pep Guardiola, mentioned Son Heung-min before Harry Kane, who scored the winning goal.
Fortunately, Leicester is a team that once fell to the relegation zone due to defensive anxiety this season.
Currently, he has conceded 37 goals in 21 league games, and the only teams with more goals than Leicester are Bournemouth (43 goals) in 19th place and Southampton (38 goals) in 20th place in the relegation zone. 카지노
Defensive anxiety continues, such as giving up two runs in a row in the last three league matches.
If Son Heung-min scores another hat-trick against Leicester, he can achieve the record of 100 goals in the EPL career.
It is not impossible considering the recent recovery of performance and the weakness of the opponent’s defense.
It is a game that Tottenham also needs to win to compete in the top 4. Tottenham, currently in 5th place (39 points, 12 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses), is one point behind Newcastle (40 points) in 4th place.
Manager Antonio Conte, who was absent due to cholecystitis surgery, also returned to the team ahead of the Leicester match.
