A goal would tie Drogba for 104 EPL goals in his career
PSG’s Lee Kang-In keen to link up with returning Mbappe for first time
Tottenham Hotspur’s English Premier League (EPL) “captain” Son Heung-min will be looking to score his first goal of the new season against Manchester United on Saturday.
Tottenham will kick off the 2023-2024 EPL Second Round at home against United at 1:30 p.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.
After drawing 2-2 with Brentford in the first round, 토토 Spurs will be looking for their first win of the season.
With Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich (Germany), Spurs have rebuilt around their new captain, Son Heung-min.
The opening match saw Brazil international goalkeeper Heucharlison up front, while Son partnered with newcomers James Maddison and Dejan Kulicepski.
However, Son struggled with his footwork in the first game, managing just two shots on goal.
Man Utd game is a chance to shake off the opening day slump. In the wake of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s struggles, manager Ange Postecoglou is reportedly considering moving Son Heung-min up front.
In the past, Son has often stepped in as a ‘son-top’ when Kane has been sidelined with injury and has performed admirably.
With United’s tendency to play high up the pitch, unlike Brentford, who are more defensive-minded, 안전놀이터 there will be plenty of opportunities for Son to use his speed on the counter-attack.
If Son scores another goal against United, he will reach 104 goals in the EPL, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo (Alnasr) and joining Chelsea legend Didier Drogba (retired).
Korean soccer’s next big thing, Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain-PSG), will kick off the 2023-2024 French Ligue 1 second-round tie against Toulouse at 4 a.m. on the same day.
Lee made a strong impression in the league opener against Lorient (0-0 draw), starting on the flank and playing 82 minutes.
In the absence of Neymar (Al-Hilal), who traveled to Saudi Arabia, and Kylian Mbappe, who was left out of the roster, Lee opened up the attack with his wide moves.
The Ligue 1 secretariat voted him Man of the Match after the game.
The second leg against Toulouse will see a position change. Mbappe, who had been at odds with the club over his living arrangements, has returned to the squad and the arrival of France international winger Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona (Spain) has forced a midfield shift.
Lee is no stranger to the position, having also played in midfield for Valencia and Mallorca.
Rather, he’ll be looking to set up Mbappe and Dembele with 스포츠토토 knife-edge passes with his left foot to get his first attacking points of the season.
