‘EPL 18G 4 goals’ SON, a series of sluggishness… British media “looked lacking in confidence”

“Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) didn’t seem confident.”

Tottenham lost 2-4 to Man City in the 7th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the morning of the 20th (Korean time). Tottenham, who suffered two consecutive defeats, maintained a precarious 5th place with 33 points.

The start was good. Tottenham took the lead in the 45th minute through Dejan Kulusevski’s goal. It was followed by Emerson Royal’s additional goal in extra time in the first half.

However, Tottenham lost the lead after that. He conceded 4 goals in the second half. 

Son Heung-min was quiet. During 90 minutes, he had only 1 shot, 0 successful dribbles (0/1), 1 successful long pass (1/1), 0 successful ground competitions (0/3), and 3 recoveries. Last season, the top scorer in the league could not be found. 먹튀검증

This is an even more disappointing result because he is Son Heung-min, the ‘Man City killer’. He led the team to victory with one goal and two assists in two consecutive matches with Man City last season. However, on this day, there was no scene where Son Heung-min broke down the space behind Man City. 

Son Heung-min could not escape criticism. 

Britain’s ’90min’ criticized Son Heung-min as “not at all confident” and “not the most effective of Tottenham’s attackers.”

At the same time, he made an unexpected remark that “he could be the same for the rest of the season.” Son Heung-min has only scored 4 goals in 18 league games this season.

On the other hand, although his performance and results were not good, Son Heung-min set an Asian record by participating in the game that day. He is the first Asian player to appear in 250 Premier League matches.
