Son Heung-min (31) from Chuncheon scored his 5th goal in the league and led Tottenham to 4th place.
Tottenham won 2-0 against West Ham United in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 20th. Tottenham, who suffered consecutive defeats against Leicester City in the 23rd round of the EPL and AC Milan in the first leg of the European Champions League round of 16, recorded 42 points and surpassed Newcastle United (41 points) to move up to fourth place in the league.
As coach Antonio Conte, who recently underwent cholecystitis surgery, decided to take a break, Tottenham’s head coach Stellini took over the baton that day. Stellini made changes to the starting lineup. In place of Son Heung-min, Richarlison formed a three-top team with Harry Kane and Kulusevski, and Ben Davis, who was mainly바카라 a stopper on the left of the three-back this season, was placed at left wingback. Hojbjerg and Oliver Skip formed the midfield, with Emerson as the right wingback. The three-back consisted of Langle, Dyer, and Romero, and the goalkeeper gloves were worn by Fraser Foster.
Against this, West Ham formed a three-top team with Downs and Bowen, led by Antonio, and Rice and Sucek were placed in the midfield. Emerson and Koupal played as left and right wingbacks, and Aged-Ogbonna-Kerer formed a three-back. Goalkeeper Fabianski started the game.
Despite the change in the starting lineup, Tottenham did not have a chance to do so in the first half. However, Tottenham, who scored 27 goals only in the second half of this season before this game, once again showed a strong appearance in the second half. From the beginning of the second half, Richarlison and Kane threatened the goal one after another, and scored the opening goal in the 11th minute of the second half. Hoivier connected an accurate pass to Ben Davies, who was penetrating, and Davies passed the ball to Emerson, who was a no-mark. Emerson split the goal with a non-stop shot that the opposing goalkeeper couldn’t even move.
Tottenham’s offensive is not over. Son Heung-min made sure to play the role of the joker. In the 23rd minute of the second half, Son Heung-min, who was substituted for Richarlison, scored an additional goal without missing a 1:1 chance created by Kane’s pass in the 4th minute. It was the Sonke duo’s 45th EPL joint goal. Son Heung-min, who scored a hat-trick against Leicester City in September last year as a substitute, succeeded in scoring this time as well, scoring in all two league matches he was substituted for this season. Having scored his 98th EPL goal, he entered the countdown to his 100th goal. After that, the game ended with Tottenham winning 2-0 without any further goals.
