In a counterattack situation, Ivan Perisic broke through the left and passed the cutback, which Son Heung-min finished with a left-footed shot and the net swayed. The shot hit the opponent’s defense and was deflected, but headed into the goal.
Son Heung-min, who scored his 100th personal EPL goal against Brighton in the 30th round, scored in the first two consecutive games of the season.
This is the first time Son Heung-min has tasted goals in two consecutive games this season, not only in the league, but also in the schedule for the entire official game.
Tottenham lost 2-3, but local media praised Son Heung-min’s performance.
According to Whoscored.com, a soccer statistics site, Son Heung-min, who played full-time, recorded 4 shots, 3 of which were valid shots, showing off his sharp shooting sense.
Son Heung-min, who played a perfect role in the attack, recording two ‘key passes’ leading to scoring opportunities, was rated 7.5 by the media.
It is the second highest in the team after Perisic (7.7 points), who worked with Son Heung-min on the left side.
England Football London also gave Son Heung-min the highest score of 7 on the team.
The media said, “He showed confidence again at the beginning of the game and scored a goal in the 14th minute of the game,” and commented, “The ‘pass between the legs’ to Harry Kane should have led to a goal.”
In the 23rd minute of the first half, Son Heung-min, who caught the ball from the back of the penalty area, saw Kane running into the penalty area and put an exquisite penetrating pass between the defender’s legs. Kane connected with a sharp right-footed shot, but it was blocked by the opposing goalkeeper.
