Tottenham had no problems without Harry Kane.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Preston 3-0 in the 2022-23 season England FA Cup 4th Round (Round of 32) held at Deepdale in Preston, England at 3:00 am (Korean time) on the 29th. With this win, Tottenham advanced to the round of 16.
Kane, the alpha and omega of Tottenham’s attack this season, started this game off the bench as his condition deteriorated due to illness. The match against Preston is important, but Tottenham also needs to pay attention to the Premier League (EPL) ranking. Tottenham decided to boldly exclude Kane from the selection because they have a league home game against Manchester City soon ahead.
When Kane isn’t on the pitch this season, Tottenham’s worry is scoring. It’s the same in the league, but most of the points come only from Kane’s toes. Richarlison has yet to fully adapt to the team, and Kulusevski is not as active as last season. 토토사이트
Tottenham didn’t have a reliable player in their backup resources to the extent that Richarlison was unable to play due to an adductor muscle injury and chose to change Ivan Perisic as a striker. In the end, even if Son Heung-min is having the worst season after transferring to Tottenham, the player to believe was Son Heung-min.
Son Heung-min succeeded in responding to the fans’ support this time. The moment when Tottenham needed an opening goal in the 5th minute of the second half. Son Heung-min took over the pass from Japhet Tanganga. The distance to the goal was far, but Son Heung-min, who had a good shooting sense in the first half, boldly fired a shot. The ball left the left foot and shook Preston’s net.
Son Heung-min, who found confidence, even scored multiple goals. In the 24th minute of the second half, Ivan Perisic sent a pass to Heung-Min Son. Son Heung-min made a shooting space with a turning action. Son Heung-min swayed the net coolly with a left-footed turning shot.
After the match, the British ‘Evening Standard’ left the headline “NO KANE, NO PROBELM (Even without Kane, there is no problem)”. It was possible because Son Heung-min played an active role. Son Heung-min’s performance will be important in the future.
