‘1% difference’ Son Heung-min, Manchester United’POTM’ selection…”I LOVE SONNY!”
Son Heung-min was selected as the best player against Manchester United.
Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the 33rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 4:15 am (Korean time) on the 28th. As a result, Tottenham (54 points, 16 wins, 6 draws, 11 losses, 60 points, 53 losses) jumped to 5th place.
On this day, ㅋㅋㅋ벳acting manager Ryan Mason brought out a winning number. Dejan Kulusevski, who was in a slump, sat on the bench and Richarlison started. In addition, he moved Son Heung-min from the left to the right and brought a change. It was a strong will to open the Manchester United goal somehow.
But he didn’t turn out the way he wanted. Manchester United ran away with a two-point lead thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in the first half. Tottenham launched a counterattack after entering the second half. In the 11th minute of the second half, Pedro Poro pulled the reins by scoring a chase goal like gold in a chaotic situation.
The balance was finally struck. The solution was Son Heung-min. After David de Gea’s goal kick in the 35th minute of the second half, Tottenham’s counterattack began. Harry Kane delivered an early cross to the goal. Son Heung-min, who was looking for an opportunity behind the Manchester United defender, shook the net with a calm push.
In the end, Tottenham escaped from a draw and took one point. Heung-Min Son was selected as the Distinguished Player. Tottenham delivered the results of the ‘POTM (Player Of The Match)’ vote through the SNS channel and announced, “Son Heung-min won against Kane by only 1%. Good job, Sonny!” Tottenham fans also sent congratulatory messages to Son Heung-min, saying, “I LOVE SONNY!”
It’s not over yet. In the next round, Tottenham will face Liverpool on an away trip to Anfield. It is a big match with ‘6 points’, befitting the two teams that are struggling for ‘TOP4 leap’.
Acting head coach Mason said, “Son Heung-min is strong and plays every weekend all season. He is one of the most important players for us. I hope Son Heung-min will be the key to Tottenham in the remaining five games.” Son Heung-min challenges ‘two consecutive goals’ and ‘double-digit scoring for 7 consecutive EPL seasons’ in the upcoming Liverpool expedition.
