Son Heung-min, who challenged to achieve his 100th personal goal in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), kept silent with ‘zero shots’. Tottenham, their team, drew with Everton, who were in the lower ranks, at the end of a battle in which one player was sent off.
In the 2022-2023 EPL round 29 away match held at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England on the 4th (Korean time), Tottenham failed to keep Harry Kane’s first penalty score and drew with Everton 1-1.
This match was Tottenham’s first match since they sacked manager Antonio Conte and appointed assistant manager Christian Stellini as acting manager.
Tottenham, who drew 3-3 with Southampton at the bottom in the 28th round right before the A-match (match between national teams), failed to win against the lower-ranking team for two consecutive games.
Satisfied with 1 point, Tottenham (15 wins, 5 draws, 9 losses, 50 points, +12 goals) rose to 4th place ahead of Manchester United (50 points, +4 goals), who had the same points.
However, since fifth-place Manchester United played two fewer games than Tottenham, it is still at a disadvantage in the competition for fourth place, which is the final line for advancing to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL).
Everton (6 wins, 9 draws, 14 losses, 27 points), which fell to 18th place in the relegation zone ahead of the match, avoided defeat thanks to Michael Keane’s ‘theater equalizer’ right before the end of the second half, and rose to 15th place with a precious 1 point.
Tottenham, who brought out the 3-4-3 formation that former manager Conte often used, took over 60% of the possession in the first half alone, but under the intense pressure from Everton, the three-top team of Son Heung-min-Harry Kane-Dejan Kulusevski rarely had a chance to score. didn’t catch
On the 24th of last month, Son Heung-min (99 EPL individual goals), who scored multiple goals in an evaluation match between Korea and Colombia (2-2 draw), raised expectations for his 100th EPL individual goal, but failed to make a single shot in the first half. 메이저놀이터
In the 43rd minute of the first half, Son Heung-min, who had been quiet, received a penetrating pass from Kulusevski and ran through the space behind the defense and showed a sharp right-footed shot from the right side of the penalty area, but was blocked by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and later ruled offside and the shooting record was erased. lost.
It was after the ‘extraordinary situation’ occurred at the beginning of the second half that the game changed.
In the 12th minute of the second half, Tottenham faced the good news of Everton’s Abdoulaye Ducoure, who was in a war of nerves after competing with Kane, could not hold back his anger and swung his hand to Kane’s face and was immediately sent off.
