Even if ‘Son-Ke’ is pessimistic… British media, “Tottenham expected to lose against Palace”
- on May 06, 2023
It was predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will have a difficult fight against Crystal Palace.
Tottenham will face Palace in the 35th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 11:00 pm (Korean time) on the 6th.
Tottenham are in a bad mood right now. After winning against Brighton on the 8th of last month, there is no win for 4 games토스카지노 in the league. Their 4 match record is 1 draw and 3 losses, and the results are not good either. Because of this, the ranking has fallen to 7th place.
The biggest problem is the unstable defense. Tottenham have conceded 15 goals in the last 4 matches. This is an average of over 3 goals per game. In particular, the 1-6 loss to Newcastle United and the 3-4 loss to Liverpool were games in which the weaknesses of Tottenham’s defense were clearly revealed. Tottenham are 7th behind Liverpool in 5th and Brighton in 6th.
Tottenham meet Palace at an important crossroads. Palace is on the rise after the manager change. After losing against Brighton on March 16, manager Patrick Vieira was sacked, and manager Roy Hodgson took his place as a firefighter. Hodgson, who sat on the bench since the match against Leicester on April 1st, is leading Palace’s upward trend with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in 6 matches.
Also, the thing that has improved the most since Hodgson took over is his scoring ability. After Hodgson’s appointment, Palace scored 15 points in six games, exceeding two goals per game. Palace, which is currently ranked 11th, can be competitive enough in Tottenham away.
Ahead of the confrontation between the two teams, local prospects in the UK said that Tottenham would struggle. The British media’Evening Standard’ evaluated, “I’m not sure if Tottenham will be able to revive again. If the defense doesn’t collapse again for 15 minutes, it’s questionable whether they can overpower the opponent.” Palace’s 2-1 predicted victory.
Meanwhile, Tottenham believes in the scoring ability of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min apart from the unstable defense. Currently, Kane is recording his 25th goal in the league and is showing a sense of rising water. In addition, Tottenham has to believe in the offensive power of the two players as Son Heung-min also scored his 10th goal in the last two games in a row.
