Tottenham Hotspur still believes in Son Heung-min. He’s been amazing without scoring, said head coach Christian Stellini.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Leicester City in the 23rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at 0:00 am (hereinafter Korean time) on the 12th. Tottenham are currently 5th in the league (39 points) and Leicester are 14th (21 points).
It’s an important match for Tottenham. Tottenham are currently one point behind fourth-placed Newcastle United with one more game to play. There is bad news about the absence of Hugo Lloris and Christian Romero, but as Newcastle have recently been slowing down with two consecutive draws, they are aiming for a prelude to a reversal with a victory against Leicester.
The attacking team is healthy. Harry Kane, who became the top scorer in Tottenham’s career last game, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski are all preparing to make a sortie. Except for Lucas Moura, there is no player with a major physical condition.
Son Heung-min’s sharp toes can also be expected once again. Son Heung-min broke a long silence by scoring a hat-trick as a substitute in the first match of this season against Leicester. He recently scored multiple goals in the FA Cup and showed a good performance against Man City, so it is worth expecting enough goals.
Head coach Stellini also believed in Son Heung-min. At a press conference before the game, he said, “If Son Heung-min goes silent and scores 3 goals in one game, I think he will be able to score more goals using this as a momentum,” he said. .
However, he emphasized that scoring is not the only criterion for evaluating Son Heung-min. Head coach Stellini said: “In the last three or four games, Heung-Min Son has played an amazing game. Even when he wasn’t scoring, he helped the team. He was important in many aspects: defensively, penetrating, counter-attacking, creating space. The only thing that matters is scoring goals. No,” he said, emphasizing that Son Heung-min is an indispensable player for the team regardless of goals. 온라인바카라
Although Son Heung-min failed to score his last goal against Manchester City, his physical condition has improved enough to receive local praise that he has “come back to life”. If he shows his good form in this game and even fires up firepower, it will not be enough to say that Son Heung-min is ‘resurrected’.
