Its Son Heung-min’s Contribution to Tottenham Tied for 4th Place

Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur’s captain and attacking core

was selected as one of the team’s five best players. 

However, despite being the team’s highest scorer

he is tied for 4th place.

Alasdair Gold, a Tottenham reporter for ‘Football London

a media outlet specializing in London-based clubs

evaluated the performances of Tottenham players to date and gave scores on the 16th (Korean time).  바카라사이트

The perfect score is 10 points.

Son Heung-min received 9 points. 

This is the same score as left-back Destiny Udogi. 

Tottenham’s new guardian Guglielmo Vicario

Junior defender Mickey van der Pen, and James Maddison

one of the best transfers in the Premier League this summer

are tied for first place with a perfect score of 10.

Gold gave Son Heung-min 9 points and said

Son Heung-min is carrying out the captaincy very stably,” and “He is showing good leadership both on and off the pitch and is having a good impact on (the team’s) transitional period.” .

He continued, “Son Heung-min is showing how strong he is in big games by scoring a hat-trick against Burnley (in early September) and scoring two goals in the North London derby against Arsenal

adding, “He is very active in his assigned central striker role.

I’m handling it well,” he said. They praised Son Heung-min for his ability and leadership.

However, the recent appearance is a bit disappointing.

Gold said, “After Maddison left the team (due to injury) in the last few games

Son Heung-min suffered because there were few opportunities provided,” and added

Before (Madison left), he scored 8 goals in 7 games.”

Maddison suffered an ankle injury in the 11th round of the 2023/24 English Premier League on the 7th and left the team. 

Because of this, Maddison could not be seen in the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) in the 12th round of the league.

Son Heung-min also shows signs of hesitation after his ‘soul best friend’ Maddison leaves.

He scored his 8th goal of the season against Crystal Palace in the 10th round of the league on the 28th

but his toes got cold after the match against Chelsea when Maddison left. 

In the game against Wolves, Son Heung-min recorded only one shot at the end of the second half and was unable to save the team from a 1-2 loss.

Nevertheless, Son Heung-min’s performance at the beginning of the season was sufficient to be selected as one of the best five players in the club. 

He is currently in a fierce competition with Manchester City’s Erling Holland (13 goals) and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (10 goals) for the top scorer position with 8 league goals.

Meanwhile, Gold also left favorable reviews of Vicario, van der Pen, and Madison.

He gave Vicario a perfect score of 10, saying, “In a word, he is amazing,” and “I wonder if he has ever made a mistake. 

He claimed that Vander Pen has the same ability as Tottenham’s one-club man and legendary defender Ledley King, saying

He blends seamlessly into the fast pace and rough physicality of the Premier League.

He gave great praise to Maddison, saying

It was the best transfer in the Premier League last summer,” and “It brought a new wind to Tottenham.”

Tottenham head coach Anzhi Postekoglou was also given 9 points. 

Gold said, “Although we lost the last two games, Postekoglu has repaired a broken club.

If Postekoglu’s philosophy is imprinted on the players and we receive appropriate reinforcements in the January transfer market, we will be able to top the league again.

It can be done,” he said.

Tottenham will play the 13th round of the league against Aston Villa, ranked 5th in the league, on the 26th after the international match period.

Tottenham is on 26 points and Aston Villa is on 25 points, so if Tottenham gives up a win in the head-to-head match, the rankings of the two teams will change. 

Since Tottenham is evaluated as having the ability to challenge for the league title again

the match against Aston Villa is expected to serve as a watershed that will determine the direction of the team’s pursuit of the top spot.
