Son Heung-min challenges consecutive goals in front of Klinsman… Fills 10 league points beyond the 100th goal￼
Super Sonny Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) scores consecutive goals. He must lead Tottenham’s fight for fourth place by surpassing 100 goals in the English Premier League (EPL).
Tottenham will play a home game against Bournemouth on the 31st round of the EPL at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 11:00 pm (Korean time) on the 15th. Son Heung-min, who is the 34th player in EPL history to set up a golden pagoda with his 100th personal goal, is also expected to start and take on the role of leading the team’s attack.
In particular, the Korean national football team coach Jürgen Klinsmann watches this match and watches Son Heung-min play안전놀이터. Coach Klinsman, who took the helm of the national team in February, started the next schedule after successfully playing two A-matches in March. It is to travel around Europe and meet the national team players who are active in each country’s league. I watch the matches of Son Heung-min, Scotland Celtic’s Oh Hyun-kyu, Italy’s Napoli’s Min-jae Kim, and Germany’s Mainz’s Lee Jae-seong. In addition to watching the match, he plans to meet and talk with the players in person.
Manager Klinsman has played an active role in Tottenham. Watching his junior son Heung-min play at the home stadium of Tottenham, the team he played for, is a meaningful schedule for me personally.
It is also an important match for Son Heung-min. Although he scored his 100th goal in his personal career in the EPL, he still needs more goals to continue scoring in double digits in the league for 7 consecutive seasons. This season, Son Heung-min has participated in 28 league games, scoring 7 goals and 4 assists.
Son Heung-min scored a fantastic kick in the match against Brighton just before, and scored his 100th goal in the EPL. It is the 34th in league history and the first Asian player to set a record. In addition, Son Heung-min has scored a total of 142 goals since wearing the Tottenham uniform in August 2015, ranking 7th in the team’s scoring category. If you score just one more goal, it will be tied with Tottenham senior Jermaine Defoe’s 143 goals. Fortunately, the performance against Bournemouth is not bad. Son Heung-min scored 5 goals and 2 assists in 9 games against Bournemouth, especially 3 goals and 2 assists in 4 games held at home.
Tottenham also needs a win. In order to win a ticket to the European Champions League next season, they have to be in the top 4, but they are currently in 5th place with 16 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses (53 points). 3rd place Newcastle (56 points) and 4th place Manchester United (56 points) are at a more disadvantageous situation as they have played one game less than Tottenham. However, it is too early to give up as there are still league schedules left.
After the match against Bournemouth, Tottenham will face Newcastle on the 23rd and Manchester United on the 28th. Depending on the match result, a reversal of the ranking is possible. Tottenham overcame Bournemouth with 8 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in 11 Premier League matches. They also won all 5 home matches. Bournemouth is 15th in the league this season (30 points).
