Technical support issues
Son Heung-min cancels offside goal 3 times → 3 consecutive league losses
Even if I had no luck, I didn't have much luck.
Tottenham faced Aston Villa in the 13th round of the 2023/24 season of the English Premier League PL held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 26th and lost 1-2. Tottenham fell to fifth place with three consecutive losses.
Son Heung-min played as a front-line striker and pierced the opponent's goal three times, but all were canceled due to offside decisions. Tottenham have been undefeated in the league for 10 consecutive games since the start of the season, but they lost to Wolverhampton and Aston Villa in a row starting with Chelsea in the 11th round. Villa finished fourth in the league with three more points.
Tottenham opted for a 4-3-2-1 - epitome. With Son Heung-min at the forefront, Brian Hill, Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson at the second line. Giovanni Lo Celso and Rodrigo Bentancur were located in the midfield. The four bags consisted of Destiny Udodge-Ben Davis-Emerson Royal-Pedro POWs. The goal was defended by Guglielmo Vicario.
Tottenham has been active from the beginning. In the first and second minutes of the first half, Udogi and Kulusevski had chances, but all failed. In the 13th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min received Johnson's pass and continued to shoot, but lost his center of gravity. The ball cut through the air.
Son Heung-min shook Villa's net. He took a pass from Hoivier, who came in as a substitute in the 44th minute of the first half, and kicked it neatly into the corner. But the deputy judge declared offside.
Just before the end of the first half, the villa balanced. In the 7th minute of the first half, Pau Torres scored the equalizer with a header from Douglas Luiz's free kick. The first half ended 1-1.
Son Heung-min was also unlucky in the second half. In the 14th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min received Johnson's pass and finished lightly, but this time Johnson's position was offside.
The villa turned the tables. In the 17th minute of the second half, Ollie Watkins scored with a simple shot in the penalty box.
Tottenham chased, but bad luck ensued. In the 39th minute of the second half, Hoivier's shot hit the net. Son Heung-min finished the second ball directly and entered the goal, but even this was offside. In the end, Tottenham were defeated 1-2.
Son Heung-min was somewhat disappointed. "Football London," a local British media outlet, said, "I put a shot in before halftime, but it was offside. The same result came out in the second half. The third effort was also offside. "I tried, but there was not much I could do," he said, giving him a six-point rating.
England's "90min" scored six points, saying, "Son Heung-min's movement caused problems for the opposing team, but on the contrary, he can speak well about Villa's high defensive line."
The ratings of the statistics-based media were more compliant. "Footmob" gave Son Heung-min a 6.7 rating. The "Sopa Score" rating was 7.7, the third highest in the team.
According to Football London, Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou said after the game, "The results are obviously disappointing," adding, "I felt that the players played the football we wanted to play fantastic." On another day, it would have been a game that we could win comfortably," he said.
Son Heung-min also apologized to his fans. British 'Metro' reported his interview. Son Heung-min said, "I'm so sorry to the fans. The recent three-game losing streak is certainly not the way we want to approach it. I think we have a big responsibility to keep going for next weekend," he said.
"As a captain I can say that everyone did everything to win. It was difficult to create opportunities, but I think we put everything into it. We should have controlled more in the game ahead of us. We started running the game a little slowly. Then I lost my tempo. In set piece, we have to be stronger than today," he said.
Son Heung-min said, "I'm happy. I'm very happy for the players to play with everything on the line in difficult situations, but it doesn't matter how hard they play. In the end, it is the result that matters. "I'm satisfied with the way I played, but I'm heartbroken that I lost at home," he added.
Tottenham have been in a bad situation lately. Until the beginning of the season, he ranked first in the PL by announcing the best start in the club's history, but the team began to collapse against Chelsea in the 11th round.
At that time, Tottenham's main defenders Christian Romero and Destiny Udoji were sent off. They were defeated 1-4, unable to overcome their inferiority in numbers.
There were also injured. In the 43rd minute of the first half, Van Der Pen fell down holding on to his hamstring while sprinting to prevent the opponent's penetration pass. Medical staff were rushed in, but they could not play. A major injury was suspected because he complained of great pain. Madison also left the stadium in the 45th minute due to an ankle injury.
Originally, Madison's injury didn't look serious. The English Football Association has announced a 25-member list to participate in the A-match in November. This includes Madison. If it was a major injury, it was impossible to get a second job.
However, the club delivered another news. Tottenham said on its SNS on the 10th, "Madison has dropped out of the England national team due to an ankle injury. He will not play in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying match against Malta and North Macedonia, he said. "I will remain in Tottenham for rehabilitation with the club's medical staff."
According to The Athletic, Postecoglou said, "Madison is much worse than we thought. He suffered an ankle injury. I was tested the day after the game because my condition was not good. The time to return will probably be the new year," he said.
Madison became the team ace this season, scoring three goals and five assists in 12 games. It was a positive evaluation that it was a perfect recruit for a team that lacked creativity. He had a good chemistry with Son Heung-min, but he will no longer be able to play this year.
Postecoglou opened up about other players as well. "Pander Penn has a hamstring injury. "I can't play for a few months," he said, adding, "Hishalisson had pelvic surgery. We decided that the A-match break was a good time. "I can't play for a month," he explained.
Van Der Pen has risen to the core of the team since joining Tottenham this season. Christian Romero and Van Der Penn had the best defensive chemistry in the PL. It helped with its wide coverage and speed. The injury is so serious that the current recovery period is not accurately determined. It may be difficult to return early next year as well as this year's game.
He had hoped to win his first championship of the club since the launch of the PL, but he faced a crisis due to injuries. It will face Manchester City on the 4th in a situation where bad news overlaps.
