Tottenham won a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United in the 16th round of the Premier League (PL) in the 2023-24 season at 1:30 a.m. on the 11th (Korea time) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. This will put Tottenham in fifth place in the league with nine wins, three draws and four losses (30 points). On the other hand, Newcastle will remain in seventh place in the league with eight wins, two draws and six losses (26 points).
It was a pleasant win. Son Heung-min, who was appointed as the left wing forward, played a major role. Manager Enze Postecoglou placed Hishalisson at the front line and dispatched Son as a winger. The anomalous change has had great effect. Son continued to break down the side with his fast feet, and eventually made two assists.
Kieran Trippier failed to control Son. In the 26th minute of the first half, Son had a one-on-one contest with Trippier on the left side. Son overpowered him with a fantastic step-over and sent a grounder cross with his left foot. Destiny Udoji lightly pushed the ball in at the gate to score the first goal. It was Son’s third help in the league.
Tottenham scored an additional goal. In the 37th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min again had a one-on-one showdown with Trippier. This time, when Trippier’s center of gravity collapsed after the step-over, Son broke through another shot, and Trippier failed to stop it. Son Heung-min sent a ground ball cross in a relatively relaxed state, and Hishalisson scored an additional goal with a light kick in the door. This is Son’s fourth help in the league. 바카라
Tottenham didn’t stop attacking in the second half. At the 15th minute of the second half, Hishalisson caught a long-distance pass that Pedro Porro gave at the half-line, and scored multiple goals on the day by showing a calm finish. With the gap already widened by three goals, Postecoglou replaced Hishalisson with Giovanni Lo Celso at the 28th minute of the second half. With this change, Son moved back to the front line.
Even at the frontier, Son was threatening. He received a penalty kick (PK) through a prisoner’s pass at the 38th minute of the second half. Son finished the game as a kicker himself. With this goal, Son has scored double digits in the PL for eight consecutive seasons. Tottenham ended its five-game winless streak by winning 4-1.
In the meantime, there is a person who drew attention, not related to the content of the match. It is Tottenham’s mascot. Before the match, one of Tottenham’s mascot children smiled by warming up hard in front of the camera.
England’s The Sun also noted the young mascot. “The lively Tottenham mascot showed that he is ready to play ahead of the Tottenham match against Newcastle. Before the two teams came out of the dressing room, the boy was seen moving cute bodies,” the media said.
He was passionate. Jamie Rednepp, who was a commentator on Sky Sports in the U.K., noted the young mascot, saying, “Tottenham has too many players injured. They may need him! This young mascot is ready for kickoff.” He entered the stadium with an imposing look and showed boldness when greeting the other players.
