'Only Son Heung-min Can Be Seen On The Scoreboard' Son Heung-min Sets New Record In 24 Years... Goal-Early Goal In 10 Minutes of First Half
Tottenham Hotspur drew 3-3 with Manchester City in the 14th round of the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season at 1:30 a.m. on the 4th (Korea Standard Time) at Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England.
Tottenham ended its three-game losing streak to rank fifth with eight wins, three draws and three losses and 27 points. With three consecutive draws, Manchester City slid to third place with nine wins, three draws and two losses and 30 points. Manchester City widened its gap with Arsenal (33 points) by three points.
Tottenham escaped the crisis of almost losing four consecutive league games for the first time since 2004. Tottenham has never lost four consecutive league games since manager David Fleet in November 2004. This time, after losing to Chelsea, Wolverhampton and Aston Villa one after another, Manchester City were on the verge of kneeling down, but it was revived with a dramatic equalizer.
Tottenham has been on a roll this season with eight wins and two draws until the 10th round of the league. It even beat Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal to a surprise lead. The "attack football" transplanted by Postecoglou, the new coach, shone.
However, the one thing that was waiting for after 10 matches was undefeated was three consecutive losses. After losing 1-4 to Chelsea, Tottenham started to crumble. They came from behind to defeat 1-2 in an away match at Wolverhampton, and knelt 1-2 even after scoring the first goal in a match against Aston Villa at home. It was all the more shocking because they lost from behind in all three matches.
Still, Coach Ange Postecoglou has declared that he will not change the attacking football that he has played so far. Ahead of the match, he said, "It is a good test to see how far we have come as a team and our project to become a team that performs in a certain way. There is no better way to play than to face the best. It is a strong test that will take place at the Etihad Stadium," adding that he will not back down.
Son Heung-min scored the first goal. After defending from a corner kick in the 6th minute of the first half, Kulusevski passed a long pass to the front. Son Heung-min, who was jumping into the empty space, overcame a physical fight with Doku and ran in a storm. Digging into the right side of the box, he drilled goalie Ederson with a sharp shot.
