Next opponent Soton…’16G 12 goals’ Signal to Son Heung-min to score ‘EPL 100 goal’
Unfortunately, Southampton is the next opponent for Son Heung-min, who is aiming for the historic English Premier League (EPL) 100th goal.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1 in the 27th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. Tottenham, who finished fourth with 48 points with the victory that day, widened the gap with Liverpool (42 points) in fifth place to six points.
It was a victory that was cool after a long time. Since the English FA Cup match against Sheffield United, Tottenham has not won. Elimination of the FA Cup, shock defeat to lower-ranking Wolverhampton, and advancing to the quarterfinals of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) all overlapped at once. It was also noisy internally due to problems with manager Antonio Conte and the controversy over Richarlison’s interview. In the worst atmosphere, a victory was demanded against Nottingham, but fortunately, we got 3 points.
Son Heung-min managed to score. In the 16th minute of the second half, when Harry Kane was leading 2-0 with a multi-goal, Richarlison’s pass neatly scored. The content of the game was good as well as the goal. He played until the 38th minute in the second half, recording 4 shots (1 point), 5 key passes, 4 successful crosses (6 attempts), and a 100% long pass success rate (2 attempts, 2 successes). Based on the soccer statistics media ‘WhoScored.com’, it was ranked second (8.32 points) following Kane (8.59 points).
Local media, such as England’s ‘Football London’, also praised Son Heung-min’s performance and gave him an 8-point rating. He also succeeded in scoring the 99th goal in the EPL with the goal that day. After entering the 2015-16 season, his EPL No. 100 goal is in front of his eyes after about 8 years. Only 33 players have scored 100 or more goals in EPL history. Son Heung-min is on the verge of becoming a member of the historic 34th EPL 100 club. 더블유 토토
In the next match against Southampton, Son Heung-min is the best opponent. Southampton is the team where Son Heung-min scored the most goals during his career. They met 16 times in official matches and scored a whopping 12 goals. In the 2020-21 season, he once scored 4 goals in 1 game. If there is no goal, an assist is recorded. He had six assists, one of which came in a 4-1 win over the season.
The odds of winning are also good. He won 10 of his 16 fights and lost only 3. The best scenario for Tottenham’s next game is to bring victory with Son Heung-min’s EPL 100th goal. It remains to be seen whether Tottenham and Son Heung-min, who were discouraged by the failure to win consecutive trophies, will achieve satisfactory results.
