Recently sluggish, but…’Man City Killer’ SON expected to be selected
Despite the recent sluggish form, Son Heung-min was expected to start.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Manchester City in the 7th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season, which will be held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England at 5 am (Korean time) on the 20th.
Two teams who were busy on their way met. First of all, Man City has a red flag turned on in the championship competition. In a situation where they had to narrow the gap with ‘number one’ Arsenal, they were caught by ‘rival’ Manchester United. Jack Grealish took the lead, but then conceded consecutive goals to Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford to lose. The difference between the points against Arsenal increased to 8 points and allowed Newcastle United and Man United to pursue.
Tottenham are getting pushed out of the competition for fourth place. They lost 0-2 in the North London Derby, failing to claim points and narrowing the score gap with ‘fourth place’ Manchester United. Rather, they allowed Fulham, Brighton, and Brentford to pursue. If they lose this game, they could fall to 7th place. 토토사이트
That’s why you have to do all-out war. Accordingly, two Tottenham-related reporters from the British media ‘Football London’ revealed the expected lineup. As Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski recovered from injuries, many people expected and demanded that Son Heung-min go to the bench. However, it was not easy to exclude Son Heung-min, who is showing the aspect of ‘Man City Killer’ as he recorded 7 goals and 3 assists in his career, from the selection.
Tottenham officials thought the same. Reporters Alesdair Gold and Rob Guest both expected Son Heung-min to start. They differed by only one place in the best 11. Hugo Lloris, Christian Romero, Eric Dyer, Matt Doherty, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Ivan Perisic, Kulusevsky, Heung-Min Son, and Harry Kane were common and were split by Ben Davis and Clément Langle at the left stopper. .
Both reporters predicted Son Heung-min as the starter, but were not sure. Reporter Gold said, “The return of Richarlison is expected to affect the position of Son Heung-min, who is in poor form among the offensive line.” If he shows good form in training, he left room for Richarlison to be chosen instead of Son Heung-min.
The guest reporter also evaluated, “Since Son Heung-min’s condition is not good, sending Richarlison as a starter can be an attractive choice.” However, he responded cautiously, saying, “Hisharli Song has just returned, so it may be a bit hasty for him to start.”
