Son Heung-min (31) of Tottenham Hotspur FC scored his 11th goal of this season, leading his team to win three consecutive games.

Son Heung-min led his team’s 2-1 victory with the winning goal in the 18th minute of the first half of the 18th round home game of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-2024 season against Everton at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 24th. Son Heung-min, who played as a left wing forward with Hishalisson’s first goal in the 9th minute of the first half, pushed Brennan Johnson’s shot, which exchanged the ball with Dejan Kulusevski, into the middle of the opponent’s goalkeeper’s right foot.

As a result, Tottenham has jumped to fourth place with three consecutive wins, three draws, and four losses, beating Manchester City (10 wins, four draws and three losses, 34 points), which has played one game less with 36 points. It is four points ahead of Arsenal (12 wins, four draws and two losses, 40 points).

Son Heung-min, who scored his 10th goal of the season (114 goals overall) in the 16th round against Newcastle and scored double figures for the eighth consecutive EPL season, resumed his scoring spree in two games, continuing his competition with Erling Holan (14 goals) and Mohamed Salah (12 goals).

It is also interesting that his Christmas performance is maintained steadily. Son Heung-min, who led his team to a landslide 6-2 victory with two goals and one assist at an away match at Everton on December 24, 2018, has scored four consecutive goals, including a match against Crystal Palace on December 27, 2021.

EPL is famous for its Boxing Day, which is played without a break before or after Christmas, and Tottenham is set to face Brighton (away, 29th) and Bournemouth (home, 31st) this season. Son Heung-min, who said in a BBC interview, “We aim for the top four,” also said through his club channel, “I am the luckiest person in the world to be loved.”

Son Heung-min’s storm surge is a huge boost to the Korean national soccer team led by Jürgen Klinsmann. He is expected to display maximum capability at the “Clinsmann” team, which will seek to win the title for the first time in 64 years at the Asian Cup that will take place in Qatar from January to February next year. Klinsmann, who will convene 16 players, including some from overseas and domestic players, at a hotel in Seoul on Wednesday to start training, wants to build up his entire body from the beginning of the off-season training that will take place in the United Arab Emirates from January 3 next year.

Tottenham, on the other hand, is not happy with “Son Heung-min’s early departure.” He hopes to leave after playing in the FA Cup match against Burnley on January 6, but local media predict that Son will join the national team after finishing his schedule in December. He is inevitable to leave up to five matches including four matches in the league.

However, no clear date has been set yet. Son Heung-min said, “The national team is very important and the team is wary of it. There has been no official decision. We are monitoring the situation. We will be able to find a good schedule by coordinating well,” while Coach Klinsmann is expected to announce it himself on the site of the final entry for the Asian Cup on Friday. 토토사이트
