The attack point that came out after a long time led to the team victory. However, the evaluation after the match was still not very good. The crisis of Son Heung-min (Tottenham) is still ongoing.
Son Heung-min started in the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) round 21 away match against Fulham held at Craven Cottage in London, England on the 24th and assisted Harry Kane’s winning goal in extra time in the first half. Son Heung-min assisted in the second half He digested about 76 minutes until being substituted in the 31st minute, and Tottenham won 1-0.
It is Son Heung-min’s 3rd help in the league this season and the 7th attack point (4 goals, 3 assists). If you add the 2 goals scored in the UEFA Champions League, the official record for the season is 6 goals and 3 assists. After scoring a goal against Crystal Palace on the 4th, Son Heung-min, who remained silent for three consecutive games, added an attack point after a long time, even if it was not a goal.
However, the evaluation of Son Heung-min after the game is still cold. Soccer statistics website WhoScored.com gave Son Heung-min a score of 6.7 after the match. At first glance, the rating was okay, but among Tottenham players who started, it was the second lowest score after Dejan Kulusevski (6.6 points). Other statistical sites such as Sofa Score (6.6 points) and Foot Mob (7.3 points) also gave Son Heung-min the lowest rating and did not give high ratings to Son Heung-min, who raised the attack point. British soccer media ’90min’ gave Son Heung-min the lowest score of 4 among the players on both teams and said, “It was a quiet game. I assisted Kane’s goal, but it was a simple pass.”
Except for the part of the attack point, it is not so strange that low evaluations are pouring into Son Heung-min’s performance. Son Heung-min struggled with Fulham’s forward pressure that day. When Son Heung-min caught the ball, the Fulham players immediately surrounded him with two or three people, preventing Son Heung-min from showing his strong speed. Heung-Min Son received a warning in the 28th minute for stepping on the ankle of Fulham defender Kenny Tete in the process of breaking through the opponent’s defense. The breathing problem with left wingback Ivan Perisic, which has been a problem throughout the season, also showed no signs of improving. 헤라카지노
Son Heung-min tried 17 passes that day and succeeded 13 times, with a success rate of only 76%. His dribbling success and shooting were not even once. If it wasn’t for the pass that assisted Kane’s goal, Son Heung-min could have heard more criticism.
Son Heung-min, who scored 23 goals last season and tied for the top scorer with Muhammad Salah (Liverpool), is going through trials this season due to his opponent’s intensive checks and injuries. Fans who defended Son Heung-min at first are showing signs of becoming colder as time goes by. Spursweb, Tottenham’s fan community, said to Son Heung-min, who remained silent after Tottenham lost 2-4 to Manchester City on the 20th, “I couldn’t see it at all in the game. I can’t even say he’s a poor performer. He had very little involvement (in the game). He is sad,” he said, criticizing him harshly.
With rival Hisharlisson returning from injury, there is no guarantee that Son Heung-min will continue to play as a starter forever. In the meantime, Tottenham coach Antonio Conte, who had been giving Son Heung-min a steady chance, also signaled a change by making a substitution during the game for the first time in about three months. It is a particularly cold winter for Son Heung-min.
