“Son Heung-min, even if he is sluggish, he must start against Man City!”…Why?

Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski have returned, but Son Heung-min is expected to keep his starting position against Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur will play Manchester City in the 2022-23 season English Premier League (EPL) 7th round at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England at 5:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) on the 20th. Tottenham is in 5th place with 38 points (10 wins, 3 draws, 6 losses), and Manchester City is in second place with 39 points (12 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses).

Tottenham, who succeeded in reversing the mood by winning against Crystal Palace, lost 0-2 in the North London derby against Arsenal. The result was disappointing, but the content of the game was also sluggish. Helplessly, Arsenal gave the first goal and was dragged around. In the second half, we raised our offensive power, but the finish was disappointing. Tottenham were shaken again as they threw away the flow they had raised against Palace against Arsenal. 온라인카지노

This is why the result of the Manchester City match is important. Man City accumulated points at the beginning of the season with Elling Holland at the forefront, but the gap between Arsenal and No. You can see the ups and downs of Man City from the record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in the last 6 matches. It is obviously ahead of Tottenham in many ways, but this is why Tottenham has confidence.

It is also ahead of the previous record. Tottenham met Manchester City in the league last season and achieved a double. Even if you expand the range with the results of 5 league games, Tottenham recorded 4 wins and 1 loss. If Tottenham continues the trend of the past, it seems that they can fully recover from the aftereffects of losing against Arsenal.

Tottenham’s expected starting lineup for Manchester City match has been released. Heung-Min Son was named. Son Heung-min, the EPL top scorer last season, has only scored four league goals this season. Even that, there are 3 goals in 1 game against Leicester City. Not having a goal in 15 league matches was painful for Tottenham. For this reason, it was argued that Son Heung-min should be removed from the selection. As Richarlison and Kulusevski returned from injuries, there was a prediction that Son Heung-min could really be left out of the starting lineup.

England’s ‘Evening Standard’ insisted on the 18th that Son Heung-min should start against Manchester City. The media said, “Son Heung-min’s recent form is poor. Richarlison can start, but Son Heung-min will be more effective against Man City. Coach Conte said he would maintain less than 25% of possession in the match against Man City. I am saying that I will go on a counterattack, but this kind of football is more suitable for Son Heung-min.”

We must also think about how strong Son Heung-min was before Man City. Son Heung-min met Manchester City 15 times in official matches and scored 7 goals. Man City is the 4th most scored team in Son Heung-min’s career. In important matches such as the EPL, the European Football Federation (UEFA) and the Champions League (UCL), they struck a blow at Man City. Even if he has been sluggish before, it is true that it is difficult to exclude Son Heung-min from the selection if you look at the records shown.
