‘Son Heung-min 84 minutes of great success’ Tottenham defeated strong Man City… Kane, club’s most goalnew

Son Heung-min (31), who is active in the English Premier League (EPL) Tottenham Hotspur, contributed to the victory against Manchester City (Man City), a ‘strong enemy’.

Tottenham won 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane’s winning goal in the 15th minute of the first half in the 2022-23 EPL round 22 home game against Manchester City held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th (hereinafter Korean time).

Son Heung-min started as a left striker in the 3-5-2 formation that day and played the ground for 84 minutes until being replaced by Yves Bisuma in the 39th minute of the second half. Although he could not raise the attack point, he led the victory by playing a key role in Tottenham’s counterattack tactics.

Son Heung-min recorded one shot and one key pass that day. He made 21 direct touches on the ball, the fewest among Tottenham starters. However, it was impressive how he continued to sprint from the front to counterattack.

On this day, the flow of counterattacks continued as Man City continued to drive and Tottenham endured. In terms of ball possession, Tottenham only had 35.6%. However, Tottenham’s counterattack with Son Heung-min was fierce. As soon as the game started, Son Heung-min threatened Manchester City’s defense by attempting a solo dribble breakthrough of about 40m.

In the end, it was Tottenham who scored the winning goal. In the 15th minute of the first half, Pierre-Emile Hoivier pressed the Manchester City defense hard in the opposing half, intercepted the ball and passed it to Kane. Kane did not miss this and slightly changed his direction to finish with a goal. 메이저사이트

With this goal, Kane scored his 267th goal for Tottenham in all competitions. He surpassed Jimmy Greaves (266 goals) to set the record for the most goals scored in Tottenham’s career. Previously, Kane scored a goal against Fulham in the 21st round of the EPL on the 24th of last month, and tied for the top goal record with Greaves in the club’s career.

Furthermore, Kane also established a record of reaching the 200th goal in 304 matches in the EPL. After Alan Shearer (260 goals) and Wayne Rooney (208 goals), Kane is the third player to have scored more than 200 goals since the launch of the EPL.

Man City, who gave up the opening goal despite continuing to push, pulled the reins of the attack further. However, the shot missed the goal every time. Man City, who became desperate, replaced Kevin De Bruyne, who was missing from the starting list, in the 14th minute of the second half, but could not break through Tottenham’s defense.

In the 31st minute of the second half, Son Heung-Min tried his signature wind-up shot from a distance, but it was blocked by the goalkeeper and did not lead to a goal.

Tottenham faced a crisis in the 42nd minute of the second half when defender Christian Romero was sent off after receiving a second warning in the process of blocking Jack Grealish’s breakthrough. However, the remaining 10 players held on until the final whistle blew, and finally kept 3 points.

With this victory, Tottenham continued their record of five consecutive home wins against Man City. In addition, Tottenham, who won 2 consecutive league victories and 3 consecutive victories including the FA Cup, recorded 12 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses and 39 points, chasing 4th place Newcastle United (40 points) with a difference of 1 point. Including the FA Cup, it is three consecutive victories in official matches.

On the other hand, 2nd place Man City, who suffered a blow, stayed at 45 points. The difference between leading Arsenal (50 points) remained at 5 points.
