Technical support issues
The key to Tottenham's escape from losing streak was ultimately Son Heung-min.
Tottenham will face Aston Villa in the 13th round of the 2023-2024 Premier League at Tottenham Hootspur Stadium in London, England, on the 26th (Korean time).
Tottenham, who recently suffered two consecutive losses, is in need of a turnaround. Tottenham continued their undefeated streak with 8 wins and 2 draws in the opening 10 games of the season.
However, the number of injuries increased in the 11th round match against Chelsea. Additionally, Christian Romero and Destiny Udozi were sent off and were shaken. In particular, the team's new recruits, James Maddison and Mickey van der Ven, were out due to injuries.
As this is the first game after the international break, a fierce match is expected.
Tottenham saw the return of Son Heung-min, who had been called up to the South Korea national team.
This is a situation where we have to struggle. The burden increased as Maddison, who had established himself as the core of the offensive line along with Son Heung-min this season, could not appear, and even Van der Ven, who had become the core of the central defense, could not appear.
They suffered consecutive losses, losing 1-4 and 1-2 against Chelsea and Wolverhampton.
Aston Villa, whom Tottenham faces, is not an easy opponent with 8 wins, 1 draw, and 3 losses. In the previous game, they won 3-1 against Fulham.
Watkins and Diaby are in the front line, and McGinn and Tielemans are in the second line. This team has strong attack power, and Pau Torres and Konsa form a strong center back duo. Last season, Tottenham failed to win even once against Aston Villa. They lost 0-2 at home, and also lost 2-1 at Aston Villa.
Besides, Aston Villa is at its peak. They have won 6 times in the last 8 games. The ace is frontline striker Olly Watkins. His off-the-ball movement is good, and his goal-scoring ability is also fantastic. Watkins has made 405 off-the-ball moves in the league this season. The most in the league. He entered the box 138 times, the most in the league. He is the player to be most wary of.
The BBC said, "Aston Villa is playing aggressive soccer. They are recording an average of 14.9 shots per game this season," adding, "This is the highest figure in Aston Villa's history. In particular, the goal conversion rate is 16.2%, the second highest in the league after Newcastle." . They are playing aggressive soccer.
In the end, the player Son Heung-min should look forward to is Son Heung-min.
Son Heung-min, who failed to record a goal or assist in the Chelsea-Wolverhampton match, scored three goals in two international matches played at Klinsmann Lake, bringing the score to zero again. One help was also provided.
