‘It was difficult to keep up with Son Heung-min’s movements’ → ‘North London derby full time’ Arsenal defender received bad reviews

Arsenal defender was criticized while Son Heung-min made a great performance, scoring multiple goals against Arsenal in the North London derby.

Tottenham drew 2-2 with Arsenal in the 6th round of the 2023-24 Premier League season held at the Emirates Stadium in London, England on the afternoon of the 24th (local time). Son Heung-min played as a front-line striker in the game that day and performed well, scoring multiple goals.

Son Heung-min scored the first goal of the game in the 42nd minute of the match against Arsenal. Son Heung-min succeeded in scoring by completing Maddison’s pass that broke through the left side of the penalty area with a left-footed shot between the Arsenal defense in front of the goal.

Afterwards, Son Heung-min scored multiple goals in the 10th minute of the second half. Tottenham’s Maddison stole the ball from Arsenal midfielder Jorginho and made a quick break, sending the ball to Son Heung-min who penetrated the right side of the penalty area. Son Heung-min finished Maddison’s pass with a direct right-footed shot, cutting into the corner of the Arsenal goal.

Arsenal defender Gabriel played full-time in the match against Tottenham and faced Son Heung-min. The British Independent said of Gabriel’s performance against Tottenham, ‘Gabriel could not keep up with Son Heung-min’s movements and was sometimes out of position. He gave the team’s lowest rating of 5 points, saying, “The connection between Arsenal’s defense was weak.”

Son Heung-min is continuing his strong performance against Arsenal recently. In the last 11 matches against Arsenal, Son Heung-min scored 6 goals and 2 assists, and also induced 3 penalty kicks. This is the first time a Tottenham player has scored multiple goals in a North London derby away game against Arsenal since Hendry in May 1993. In particular, Son Heung-min is the first player to score multiple goals in the North London derby, which was played as Arsenal’s home game, since Arsenal used the Emirates Stadium as their home stadium.안전놀이터

Arsenal manager Arteta said after the Tottenham game: “I think we’ve lost two points. When we score, the opponent scores right away. The hardest thing in football is to get the ball in the goal. We’ve done it twice. “We scored, but we conceded two goals in a poor manner,” he said. “Due to the atmosphere of the derby, there were moments when we exaggerated our play. We could not play at the same pace when we had the ball and when we got it back. The ratings were dangerously high. “It wasn’t enough,” he said, expressing regret.

Tottenham coach Postekoglou said: “Sony (Son Heung-min’s nickname) is an outstanding leader and player. We placed him in the number 9 position and he worked hard. He puts the team first unbelievably. “The first thing we think about is the team. If we use Sonny as a front-line striker, he has the ability to finish the game,” he said, praising Son Heung-min’s performance.

Son Heung-min resumed scoring two games after the fourth round of the 2023-24 Premier League season against Burnley, where he scored a hat-trick along with multiple goals against Arsenal. Son Heung-min has scored five goals in the Premier League this season and has risen to second place in league scoring.

After the match against Arsenal, Son Heung-min said, “It’s always a difficult game, but I think we showed a fantastic performance until the end of the game. We gave it our all. I think it’s a game the fans can be proud of. We wanted to win, and it’s a shame we couldn’t do it. “I think the performance was perfect,” he said.
