Tottenham Hotspur defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 in the 10th round of the English Premier League in the 2023-24 season at Selhurst Park in London, England, on the 28th. 스포츠토토핫 Tottenham took the lead with Joel Ward’s own goal in the eighth minute of the second half and then took a 2-0 lead with Son Heung-min’s extra goal in the 21st minute. Palace’s Jordan Ayew then recovered a goal in extra time in the second half, but it was not enough to balance the game.
Son Heung-min’s recent scoring streak is amazing. I’ve played 10 league games this season, but I’ve already scored eight goals. Starting with a hat-trick against Burnley in the fourth round of the Premier League, Arsenal, Liverpool and Fulham split the net. And on that day, he scored again against Palace.
Coach Enze Postecoglou’s choice was appropriate. Tottenham had concerns about the front line ahead of this season. Harry Kane, the team’s ace, moved to Bayern Munich. Hisharlisson had to fill the vacancy, but he was sluggish due to a scoreless first three league games. In the end, Postecoglou put Son Heung-min on the front line as a striker. Son Heung-min has already scored his eighth goal in the league, living up to expectations.
Son Heung-min’s scoring streak continues, and last season’s move by former coach Antonio Conte is drawing attention again. Son Heung-min tied for the top scorer in the Premier League under Conte’s leadership in the 2021-22 season. He became the clear ace of Conte’s division.
However, Conte used Son Heung-min differently than usual last season. Instead of ordering Son Heung-min, whose speed is his strength, to penetrate the back space, he came down to a low position to help develop the ball.
Thanks to this, Son Heung-min was uncharacteristically sluggish last season. In 10 league games, he scored only three goals. All he had was a hat-trick against Leicester City in the eighth round. As such, it took a long time for Son Heung-min to score eight goals last season. At the end of January, he scored two goals against Preston North End in the FA Cup, reaching the eight goal mark. After the season, he scored 14 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions. Conte was replaced during the season, and senior coach Christian Stellini and coach Ryan Mason took over for a while in turn.
However, he has scored eight goals in 11 games this season, including the Carabao Cup in England. With his fantastic performance, he succeeded in completely eliminating the concerns of domestic fans last season.
