Will Son Heung-min decorate the finale with a 10-10 completion? Final match against Sheffield on the 20th

Blog Article

Son Heung-min, who spent a season as the English professional soccer Premier League (EPL) ‘captain’, dreams of a

successful performance in his final game.

Tottenham will play an away game against Sheffield United in the final 38th round of the 2023-2024 EPL at Bramall Lane

in Sheffield, England, at midnight on the 20th (Korean time).

This is the last game of this season for Son Heung-min, who has been working hard, including the national team's

participation in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.

After Harry Kane, who had been the mainstay of the attack since joining Tottenham, left for Bayern Munich in Germany,

Son Heung-min was appointed captain of his team and spent a season with greater responsibility.

Playing between the front line and left flank, he appeared in 34 league games, scoring 17 goals and providing 9 assists.

The score reached double digits early on, but the number of assists stopped after recording number 9 in the 32nd round

against Nottingham Forest early last month, and the goal required to complete 10 goals and 10 assists for the season has

not been reached for over a month.

If Son Heung-min adds one assist in this game, he will finish the season with 10 goals and 10 assists for the third time in

his career, following the 2019-2020 season (11 goals, 10 assists) and the 2020-2021 season (17 goals, 10 assists). .

In the EPL, there are a total of 5 players who have scored 10 goals and 10 assists more than 3 times in a season: Wayne

Rooney, Muhammad Salah (5 times), Eric Cantona, Frank Lampard (4 times), and Didier Drogba (3 times). , it is a record

that Son Heung-min would be greedy for.

The situation the team is in also increases Son Heung-min’s motivation.

Tottenham is in 5th place with 63 points through the 37th round.

It has become impossible for them to advance to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in 4th place, and they are likely to

participate in the Europa League, but they are being chased by 6th place Chelsea (60 points), so they cannot let go of

tension until the 추천 end.

The teams ranked 1st to 4th in the EPL will advance to the UCL finals next season. The 5th-place team will receive a ticket

to the Europa League finals, and the 6th-place team will secure a ticket to the Europa Conference League playoffs, which

corresponds to the third division club competition.

Depending on the result of the English Football Association (FA) Cup final, where the leading team Manchester City (Man

City) and 8th placed Manchester United (Man U) clash on the 25th of this month, there is still an opportunity for 6th place

to participate in the Europa League.

Originally, the FA Cup winning team is also given the right to advance to the Europa League, but if the team has already

confirmed advancement to the UCL or Europa League based on the league rankings, the 6th place in the EPL will be given

a ticket to the Europa League, and the 7th place will advance to the conference league.

However, the way to easily confirm advancement to the Europa League without considering various complex calculations

is to finish in 5th place, so the 'battle for 5th place' between Tottenham and Chelsea is expected to be fierce in the final


In the 38th round of the EPL, all teams play at the same time, and Chelsea, who must win, invites 11th-place Bournemouth

(48 points) to their home.

Tottenham's opponent, Sheffield, is in last place (16 points) and has already been confirmed to be relegated, so Tottenham

has an advantage over Chelsea in the matchup.
