Tottenham lost to West Ham United 1-2 in the 15th round of the 2023-24 Premier League held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, the U.K. 안전놀이터
Tottenham, which escaped its losing streak by drawing with Manchester City in the last round. Manager Enze Postecoglou called in West Ham home to challenge for a winless escape. Son Heung-min, Brennan Johnson, Giovanni Lo Celso, Dejan Kulusevski, Christian Romero and Pedro Porro were among the players.
However, the team was defeated in the end. Tottenham led the game thanks to Romero’s first goal early in the day, but failed to keep it this time as well. After the second half of the match, Jerod Bowen scored an equalizer and James Ward-Frouse scored an upset goal. Ultimately, Tottenham ended up with no win in five games.
It was a disappointing game for Son himself. Had he scored against West Ham, he would have set a new record of “double-digit goals scored for eight consecutive seasons in the PL” and “23rd in PL history” with his 113rd goal in the league. However, Son focused more on collaboration than on finishing the game. He only had one shot before being replaced at the 88th minute, and had more key passes than twice. The Sun of England also highlighted the only shot Son made from the arc in the 17th minute of the first half.
Stet has 53 ball touches, one shot on target, 79 percent pass success rate (43 attempts-34 attempts), two key passes, 100 percent long ball success rate (2 attempts-2 attempts), 75 percent ground competition success rate (4 attempts-3 attempts), expected score (xG), 0.10, and expected assist (xA) 0.43. The soccer statistics medium “Sofa Score” gave Son 7.8. The score is the highest after Pororo, Romero (8.4) and Lo Celso (7.9). Fuscordcom had 7.0 points. It is followed by Romero (7.9) and Pororo (7.7).
Son Heung-min was mentioned before. When he had an offside hat trick against Aston Villa in the 13th round, England’s Football London said, “Tottenham made 18 shots and had eight shots on target. Emiliano Martinez saved six times and hit the post twice. Son has had three offside goals. Perhaps the problem facing Tottenham is its lack of ability to deliver the ball to Son. He failed to make full use of it despite sharp attacks,” adding, “He only touched the ball 32 times in 90 minutes. Rodrigo Bentancourt touched it 34 times in 31 minutes, and Brian Hill touched it 64 times in 70 minutes. It is clear that Tottenham should lead to a goal. If the ball is delivered to the main striker, it will be a big step forward,” adding that Son should have a chance.
The defeat even humiliated Tottenham by scoring the first goal in five consecutive games and losing the game. The team will invite Newcastle United back to its home turf in the next round to seek victory.
