Tottenham Hotspur kept the lead despite the aftermath of the exit and made a winning streak again.
Tottenham won 2-0 in the 17th round of the 2023/24 season Premier League away match against Nottingham Forest at The City Ground in Nottingham, England, on the 16th (Korea time) despite being outnumbered in the middle of the second half.랭크카지노
Tottenham has won two consecutive games since its victory over Newcastle United to become 33 points (10 wins, three draws and four losses, 33 points, plus 12 goals). It is tied with Manchester City (Manchester City, which ranks fourth in overall goal difference +20), but has maintained its position in fifth place due to loss in goal difference. Tottenham is again poised to spark the race for fourth place, waiting for the results of other teams’ matches.
◆ Tottenham, who escaped six games without a win, abandoned the SON top and remained in the lineup against Newcastle as a winger
Recently, Tottenham has been rebounding from bad trends despite its ups and downs. Starting with its 1-4 defeat at Chelsea in the 11th round, Tottenham suffered four consecutive losses. Immediately after the 3-3 draw at Manchester City in the 14th round, Tottenham seemed to be on shaky ground again, losing to West Ham 1-2.
In the 16th round match against Newcastle United on the 11th, Tottenham won 4-1 completely, starting with Destiny Udogi’s goal, Hisharlisson’s multi-goal and Son Heung-min’s penalty goal.
Son Heung-min started as a left winger in the match against Newcastle for the first time in a while. He gave up his position as a front-line striker for the first time since his return from injury.
Returning to the left, Son dominated the side. He perfectly broke down Kieran Trippier, his former Tottenham teammate, and scored the team’s goal.
Son Heung-min, who once defeated Trippier in the 28th minute of the first half, helped Udo’s first goal. Ten minutes later, Son again penetrated Trippier and gave up a cutback pass to score Hisharlisson’s second goal.
Son Heung-min got a penalty kick from goalkeeper Martin Dubravka in the 39th minute of the second half and made it himself. He scored his 10th goal in the league, moving up to third place in the league in scoring.
With these goals, Son has achieved double-digit goals for eight consecutive seasons, starting with the 2016/17 season. He was named in Premier League history after Sadio Mane, Thierry Henry, Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Frank Lampard, and Wayne Rooney. He also added two more assists on the day, scoring one goal and two assists.
Coach Anji Postecoglou, who placed Son as the side rather than as the one-top, said, “Hisharlisson is in excellent physical condition right now, and the central striker is the best position. Also, upon examining the past few weeks, we found that most of the team’s attacking opportunities fall on players with more space. Son is still the best striker. I thought putting Son on the left side would give us more ways to score a goal.”
As Postecoglou intended, Son will take on more offensive point challenges as a left winger for the time being. Moreover, Nottingham has had one draw and four losses in the last five games, which is not going well. With 13 runs allowed in five games, and his defensive balance has been deteriorating, Son deserves to score goals for the second consecutive game.
However, another variable is injury. “Rosselso will not participate in the away game in Nottingham,” Tottenham said on its official website on Wednesday. “Rosselso, who has shown a bright side by scoring many goals over the past month, had problems during training, and it has become impossible to participate in the away game in Nottingham.”
That leaves Rossellso on Tottenham’s injured list along with Rodrigo Bentancur, James Maddison, Mickey Panderpen, Ashley Phillips, Ryan Sessegnon, Ivan Perisic and Manor Solomon.
Still, Tottenham’s Pape Matar Sarr and Hisharlisong are back, and Panderpen and Solomon are speeding up their return by conducting personal training with gyms and balls.
Postecoglou said in a pre-match press conference, “I’m still challenging the players for their rebound. We have eight players injured and all of them have contributed a lot. Maybe only Phillips didn’t play much.”
“The rest of the players are committed and it is still a challenge for us. It affects not only the game but also the training. If all the players were in normal condition from the start of the season, the level of training would have been higher. We would have trained more intensely. It is different from now.”
Postecoglou then said, “But it was good to have Pape and Hisharlis back last week and it was nice to have a new wind in our team. From now on, some players will be missing for the national team’s schedule in the new year, and that will be where we are going in the near future.”
Nottingham is currently at its worst with one draw and four losses, and Stephen Cooper’s position as coach is at stake. On this point, Postecoglou said, “We have to look at every context. I don’t think it will make much difference to us. It is a fact that any team knows that we will have a difficult game against Nottingham.”
“I know I didn’t do well this year, but it’s still hard to beat my opponent at home. Every game doesn’t make much difference and it’s going to be a tough one. No one would have had a worse moment than us a week ago, and we finally won the last game 4-1. You always have to see that balance,” he said.
Furthermore, he could fall into the trap of “Oh, the opponent is not good, he is showing worse performance than his best performance or he has pressure.” “You should not think like that. You should expect your opponent to do your best and think that it is difficult to beat him easily at home,” he said.
Football London, the U.K. media, predicted that Son will play as a left winger once again. Son, who started as a front-line striker instead of a winger in the match against Burnley in the fourth round, scored his first goal of the season and equalizer after receiving a pass from Manor Solomon, the left-winger, in the 16th minute of the first half when he was trailing 0-1.
