On the eve of Christmas in 2018, “Golden Gift”
Tottenham in 4th place with 3 consecutive wins
“3 games, 4 goals.” The revived Hisha-lisong
Son relieves worries during ‘Asian Cup Vacation’
Son Heung-min 31 of Tottenham Hotspur FC played a big role on Christmas Eve five years ago. In an away game at Everton on Dec. 24, 2018, Son scored two goals and had one assist to lead his team to a landslide 6-2 victory. Through this game, Son began to be nicknamed “Son Thaclos.”
Tottenham’s Santa Claus gave the victory with another Christmas Eve winning goal.
Son scored his team’s second goal in the 18th minute of the first half with a 1-0 lead over Everton in the 18th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League EPL held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Monday. Tottenham won 2-1.
This is Son’s 11th goal of this season. Son scored his 10th goal of this season in the 16th round against Newcastle on the 11th, setting a new record of double-digit goals for eight consecutive EPL seasons, and re-runing his scoring spree for the first time in two matches. He also tied for third in the EPL scoring following Erling Holan 14 goals and Muhammad Salah 12 goals, and scored 114 goals overall in the EPL to become the 23rd highest scorer in the league. Just above are coach Steven Gerrard Al Etipak who scored 120 goals and Raheem Sterling Chelsea.
Tottenham won three consecutive league games. It gained 36 points to move up to fourth place, beating Manchester City 34 points, which played one less game. It is only four points behind Arsenal 40 points, which tied Liverpool 1-1 on the day.
Son played full time as a left flanker. Tottenham gained the upper hand by scoring Hisharlisson’s first goal in the ninth minute of the first half, and Son scored an additional goal in the ninth minute of the first half. Brennan Johnson’s right footed shot from the right side of the penalty area returned to Dejan Kulusevski was blocked by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who caught the ball and fired a right-footed shot from the center of the penalty area to open the goal. As Tottenham gave up one goal to Andre Gomes in the 37th minute of the second half, Son’s goal became the winning goal.
After the match, Son was selected as “Man of the Match” on the league’s official website. The overwhelming 67.7 percent of the respondents enabled Son to score numerous saves, beating goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario 15.1 percent.
Tottenham’s victory on this day was even more meaningful by adding Hisharlisson’s revival to Son Heung-min’s performance.
Hisharlisson’s goal continued his performance by scoring four goals in the last three games. Hisharlisson, who moved to Tottenham ahead of the last season, was treated as a pain in the neck due to sluggishness and injury. The situation was the same this season. Last month, he underwent surgery for a groin injury.
However, he is back after the surgery and has been showing good performance. It gave Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou a valuable option as the number of injured players increased. Above all, Tottenham will have to play without Son Heung-min for a while as soon as the start of next year. This is because Son Heung-min will leave the team for a while to participate in the Asian Cup in early January. For Tottenham, which needs to consider Son’s absence amid an upturn, it is all the more welcome that Hisharlisson and Son Heung-min collaborated on the day. 스포츠토토
