His team Tottenham faces Manchester City, the strongest team in the league in the FA Cup round of 32
Son Heung-min, who faced Manchester City in the regular league.
Son Heung-min's team Tottenham faced Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as Manchester City), the strongest team in the league, in the round of 32 of the FA Cup, making it less likely to win.
Tottenham will play its home game against "defending champion" Manchester City in the round of 32 as a result of the draw for the fourth round (32nd round) of the 2023-2024 FA Cup on the 9th.
The two teams will face off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on the 28th.
Tottenham's captain Son Heung-min is currently out of the team for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.
Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 with Pedro Porro's winning goal in the third round of the FA Cup without Son Heung-min on the 6th, but the 4th round opponent was decided to be Manchester City, making the road to victory difficult.
Manchester City is the best team of its time to win the English Premier League (EPL) and UEFA Champions League (UCL), including the FA Cup last season.
Tottenham had a 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the regular league match held on the 4th of last month, but this time they have to play without Son Heung-min, who scored one goal and one assist at the time.
Korea's group stage schedule will be concluded on the 25th. Considering the time difference and condition, it is not easy for Son Heung-min to play against Manchester City, as chances are slim that Korea will be eliminated from the group stage, and even if he is eliminated, there are only three days left until the FA Cup's 32 ging match.
Of course, the ball is round, but Tottenham, which has to play without Son Heung-min, who has met Manchester City 18 times and scored eight goals and four assists so far, is at a very disadvantage.
Son Heung-min is trying to win the Asian Cup.
If the FA Cup is eliminated, Tottenham is likely to end this season empty-handed.
Tottenham, which was already eliminated after losing 3-5 after a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw with Fulham in the second round of the Carabao Cup (League Cup) in August last year, only the regular league and the FA Cup can try to win this season.
In the regular league, Tottenham, which is ranked fifth, six points behind the leader Liverpool, still has a chance to win, but it is unclear whether Tottenham, which is considered to have a weak player base compared to its rivals, will be able to continue the competition.
The elimination of the FA Cup means that Son Heung-min will be no match again this season.
Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer in the EPL in the 2021-22 season, is recognized as a world-class striker this season as well, but it is pointed out as a regret that he has no winning experience in his career.
As a result, Son Heung-min is even more desperate to win the Asian Cup. At least, chances are high that he will win the Asian Cup in the national team, which is considered the strongest ever in the team along with Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain).
