The best player of the day was Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min was placed at the forefront in place of ‘main gun’ Harry Kane. Based on the 3-4-3 formation, Perisic, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski were placed in the forefront. And Ryan Sessegnon, Rodrigo Bentancur, Matt Doherty, Clement Lenglet, Davinson Sanchez and Fraser Foster started.
Tottenham, who finished the first half 0-0, scored the opening goal in the 5th minute of the second half. Japhet Tanganga passed the pass to Son Heung-min. Upon receiving the ball, Son Heung-min immediately attempted a mid-range shot from outside the penalty box, and it shook the net. Son Heung-min, who regained his confidence, even reported multiple goals. In the 24th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min, who received a pass from Perisic, scored with a neat turning shot.
Son Heung-min’s 7th and 8th goals of the season. Tottenham, riding the tide, defeated Preston 3-0 with Danjuma, a substitute, scoring a key goal in the 42nd minute of the second half. After the match, Son Heung-min was praised. Britain’s ‘Evening Standard’ rated it 9 points, saying, “Son Heung-min showed a fresh look in a few months.” Other media also gave ratings of 9 or higher.
Son Heung-min, who played a big role, said, “I really needed these goals for my confidence, and they were important. It was a position I liked to shoot. The important thing for an attacker is to score goals. Helping the team advance to the next round is also important.” It’s important. I’m very happy.” 메이저놀이터
Perisic, who assisted Son Heung-min’s second goal, also gave praise. Perisic, who joined Tottenham ahead of this season, has been constantly discussing breathing problems with Son Heung-min. In the last game against Arsenal, the two players were caught frowning after Son Heung-min’s pass was not properly connected to Perisic.
There were even rumors of a discord, but it was just a rumor. Perisic posted a picture of hugging Son Heung-min on his social media and mentioned that he had “weak power ★★★★★”. Both goals on this day were meant to praise Son Heung-min, who scored with his left foot rather than his right foot, the main kick.
