There has never been anything like this before → Tottenham are in first place with a 5-point gap, soaring with ‘fingernails’
There has never been anything like this before. They are leading the league as it enters the middle. The strong teams were placed below with a difference of 5 points. Tottenham Hotspur, to which Son Heung-min belongs, continued to fly high.
Tottenham faced Crystal Palace in the 10th round away game of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) held at Selhurst Park in London, England on the 28th (Korean time). They defeated Crystal Palace, who were in mid-table, and earned 3 points. He was the first to play in the 10th round and maintained the lead by shouting victory.토스카지노 도메인
The game started with a 4-2-3-1 pattern. The ‘fingernail’ that placed Son Heung-min at the top was activated. The first half ended 0-0. They took the lead in the 8th minute of the second half thanks to an own goal by opposing defender Joel Ward. In the 21st minute of the second half, an additional goal was scored with a fantastic link-up play. James Maddison opened the opportunity by swinging down the left flank, and Brennan Johnson found Son Heung-min in the center and handed him a pass. Son Heung-min finished the match with a sensational left-footed half-volley shot.
Tottenham gave up a chasing goal in extra time of the second half, but smiled brightly after winning 2-1. With this win, he remained undefeated until the 10th round. They remained at the top of the league table with 8 wins, 2 draws, and 26 points. They continued their lead, beating second-place Manchester City and Arsenal (21 points) by five points. Even if Manchester City and Arsenal both win in the 10th round, they will maintain the lead.
Tottenham has rarely had a comfortable lead during the season recently. They were pushed back a lot by the Big 4 teams, and even the clubs that produced surprises struggled and stayed in the upper-middle tier. Since the current EPL system was created in the 1992-1993 season, they have not won the league even once. The best result was 2nd place in the 2016-2017 season. Except for the two times in history (1950-1951 season and 1960-1961 season) when they reached the top of the first division, they are showing the best pace this season.
The player who plays the biggest role in Tottenham’s rise is Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min is leading the team as a new captain this season. He was faithful to his role as a helper at the beginning of the season, but when the team’s attack power declined somewhat, he transformed into a ‘nail’ and kicked up a storm of goals. Including the winning goal on this day, he scored 8 points in the EPL this season alone. He ranked second in scoring, following Manchester City’s Erling Haaland (9 goals).
