Technical support issues
“I don’t want to repeat mistakes anymore.”
Son Heung-min, who gave Tottenham victory for the first time in six games by scoring one goal and two assists, pledged to continue his upward trend.
Tottenham defeated Newcastle 4-1 in the 16th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 11th (Korean time).
Tottenham, who had been winless with 1 draw and 4 losses in the last 5 games, finally achieved a victory and ranked 5th with 9 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses (30 points).
Son Heung-min started as a left-wing attacker and led the attack by providing two assists in the first half alone. In the second half, he changed his role to a frontline striker and converted his penalty kick into a goal, scoring 3 attack points.
Son Heung-min, who was named the best player, said in an interview with Sky Sports after the game, “I don’t want to repeat the mistakes he experienced over the past two weeks. “I want to continue to show fantastic performances like today,” he said.
He continued, “After losing 1-2 against West Ham just before that, he emphasized to his teammates that he needed to be more cool-headed and ruthless in front of goal. Fortunately, this time it led to an opportunity, and we were able to win against a strong team, Newcastle,” he said positively.
Tottenham, who had not won in their last five games, deployed Son Heung-min on the left, which was successful. Son Heung-min twice completely beat veteran fullback Kieran Trippier, who played with Tottenham in the past, and scored two goals.
Son Heung-min said, “Trippier is a friend with whom I had a good time during my time at Tottenham. But in a game situation, there are no friends. I was just trying to beat Trippier. He is a very good defender. “It was a tough game, but I am ready to play in the position the team needs.”
Coach Postekoglou, who deployed Son Heung-min as a left-wing striker, said, “Son Heung-min brought the flow to our side early on. “He showed good movement every time he caught the ball, and that was leadership,” he said. “Son Heung-min’s presence was the difference from the previous five games.” “Tottenham fully deserved to win,” he said, applauding Son Heung-min’s performance.
