The danger of ‘built-in selection’… Tottenham Son Heung-min desperately needs ‘oriental medicine’ against Fulham

What Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) needs is ‘oriental medicine’.

Tottenham will play an away match against Fulham at Craven Cottage in London, England on the 24th at 5 am (Korean time) in the 21st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season.

Tottenham is in desperate need of 4th place in the league, which has a right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season. From leader Arsenal (50 points) to 2nd place Manchester City (45 points), Tottenham, who recently suffered two consecutive losses, is unable to jump from 5th place (33 points). 토토사이트

The gap between 3rd place Newcastle (39 points) and 4th place Manchester United (39 points) widened. 6th place Brighton & Hove Albion (31 points) and 7th place Fulham (31 points) followed right behind.

Son Heung-min did not taste a goal again after scoring his fourth league goal against Crystal Palace (Tottenham 4-0 win) on the 5th. This is a poor performance compared to last season’s EPL joint top scorer (23 goals).

This season, Son Heung-min scored only 4 goals and 2 assists in 18 regular league games. Even if you add two goals in the UEFA Champions League, it is 6 goals and 2 assists in the official game.

The beginning of the season was good. However, Son Heung-min underwent surgery for an orbital fracture during a Champions League match in November last year and has yet to fully recover. He recently took off his face mask to play, but full recovery seems to be taking time.

The overlapping movement with left midfielder Ivan Perisic is also a factor in the sluggish performance. When Perisic rises, left striker Son Heung-min often falls back.

British Football London predicted that Son Heung-min would start the game against Fulham from the bench. Son Heung-min was expected to be filled by Hischarlisson, who returned from injury.

In the end, Son Heung-min has to prove it. He has to make up for it with goals as he has scored double digits in the EPL for 6 consecutive seasons from the 2016-2017 season.

Heung-Min Son has scored 97 goals in his EPL career. If you add only 3 goals, you will be the first Asian player to be named in the ‘EPL 100 Goal Club’.
