Son Heung-min watched his team go down in defeat

Tottenham captain Son Heung-min watched his team go down in defeat.

Tottenham fell to a 0-4 defeat against Newcastle United in the 33rd round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) at St. James’ Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, on Wednesday (Jan. 13).

Son Heung-min started as a frontline striker. He was largely ineffective and failed to threaten the opposition. His ball touches were rough. He also lost possession quickly. Tottenham head coach Enzi Postecoglou sent Son to the bench after just 58 minutes.

British sports media outlet The Athletic directly criticized Son for conceding two goals, saying, “Son Heung-min conceded two goals.

Coincidentally, Tottenham conceded on the counterattack as soon as Son was stripped of the ball.

First, in the 30th minute of the first half at 0-0, Son received a pass in the center of the opponent’s penalty box. 바카라사이트 His first touch was long and was immediately intercepted by Newcastle. Newcastle played a long pass forward. Two passes later, Newcastle took the lead with a shot on goal.

In the sixth minute of the second half, when the score was 0-2, Son Heung-min was also involved in the goal. He was stripped of the ball as soon as he received it during an attacking move. Newcastle attacked again, this time with a long pass. He had a chance to take on the goalkeeper. It went in the back of the net. Moments later, Son Heung-min was taken out of the game.

‘Tottenham couldn’t hold onto the ball going forward,’ said The Athletic. Son conceded two goals. They lost almost every second ball. They were vulnerable to every counterattack. Tottenham were also lacking in physicality,” diagnosing them as a total disaster.

‘It reminded me of the 0-3 loss to Fulham a month ago. This is the most worrying aspect for Spurs. It shows that Spurs are still far from a finished product.

Spurs are running out of excuses.

‘Spurs have almost a full squad,’ said The Athletic. You can’t blame injuries. They’ve played fewer games this year. You can’t blame fatigue. They need to look within themselves to find the competitive edge they still don’t have.

The Spurs did indeed struggle with injuries in the early and mid-season. Mickey Van Der Peen, James Madison, Dejan Klosepski, and other key players went down one after another. However, they all returned to action in January and February of this year.

Tottenham also missed out on European competition this season. They’ve also had early exits from the FA Cup and League Cup. 사설 토토사이트 They only play one Premier League season. They have a lighter schedule than other teams. Athletic pointed these things out.

“There’s no point in wallowing in self-pity,” says Postecoglou. It’s not the first time this has happened and it won’t be the last. It’s part of growing up. You have to accept it, utilize it, and prepare for the next challenge,” he said calmly.
