English Premier League (EPL) Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min (31) follows his best friend to a record challenge.
Son Heung-min will go on a goal hunt against Leicester City in the 2022-23 season regular league round 23 away game held at Leicester King Power Stadium on the 12th at 0:00 (Korean time). Son Heung-min, who scored his 4th league goal against Crystal Palace on the 5th of last month, will challenge for his 5th league goal in 5 games. Son Heung-min has scored 4 goals and 3 assists in 20 league games.
Son Heung-min is reviving his recent performance. Son Heung-min scored multiple goals in the FA Cup against Preston North End (EFL Championship) on the 29th of last month. Although he did not score in a league match against Manchester City (Man City), he received high praise from the local media for his unique sharp movements and space penetration.
Football London mentioned Son Heung-min first among the seven Tottenham players who will rebound in the second half. The media evaluated, “If you look at Son Heung-min’s performance in the FA Cup and Tottenham’s match against Man City, it shows that he has found his own pace.” A reporter dedicated to Tottenham, Football Insider, evaluated that he was “back to his best form.” Soccer commentator Gary Neville said, “Son Heung-min has found the spark again.”
Son Heung-min has good memories against Leicester City. Son Heung-min, who had been silent in the opening six games of the regular season in the 2022-23 season, scored three goals in a home game against Leicester City (6-2 win) in September last year. In his last season, he scored 2 goals and 1 assist in 1 match against Leicester City. Since entering the EPL, Son Heung-min has scored 10 goals and 5 assists in 15 games against Leicester City. 토토사이트
Son Heung-min challenges the grand record. Having scored 97 EPL goals, he is the first Asian player to score 100 goals with only three goals left. If you score 3 goals against Leicester City, you will succeed in achieving the record at once. Even if he just shakes his goal net, he is entering the countdown of reaching 100 goals in his EPL career. Son Heung-min has scored 41 goals in the German professional football Bundesliga, 19 goals in the UCL, and 14 goals in the FA Cup.
Son Heung-min and Kane, who are called ‘soul mates’, recently scored the 200th goal in the EPL career. It was a record that only Alan Shearer (260 goals) and Wayne Rooney (208 goals) had written since the EPL was launched in 1992. Son Heung-min also said, “I am happy to be able to share the glory of Kane’s record.” Now it’s Son Heung-min’s turn to achieve a great record.
Tottenham, 5th in the league (39 points, 12 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses), is determined to beat Leicester City and advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) (within 4th place in the league). The gap between 3rd place Manchester United (43 points) and 4th place Newcastle (40 points) is not large. Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who recently had gallbladder removal, could return to play against Leicester City.
