“SON-Medison substitution was to prevent injury”

Tottenham manager clarifies that the substitution of SON-Medison was intended to prevent injury.

Son Heung-min scored a brace to lead Tottenham to a 2-2 draw away to Arsenal in the sixth round of the 2023-2024 Premier League at the Emirates Stadium in London, England, on Thursday (Aug. 24).

The draw extended Tottenham’s unbeaten run to six games (four wins, two draws) to open the season.

After opening the season with a hat-trick against Burnley in Round 4, Son was silent in Round 5 against Sheffield Wednesday, but proved himself worthy of the Tottenham captaincy by scoring two goals in the ‘North London Derby’ against Arsenal.

The multi-goal performance took Son’s tally to 199 goals in Europe, just one shy of the 200 mark.

In addition, Son has now scored seven goals (six in the league and one in the cup) in 19 career games against Arsenal (17 in the league and two in the cup), cementing his status as an Arsenal killer.

Son was named to the BBC’s Best 11 for the sixth round of the Premier League.

“Tottenham put in an impressive performance against their North London rivals,” said Garth Crooks, who selected the BBC’s Best 11, “Spurs were denied a shock penalty and fell behind twice at Arsenal. But Son Heung-min led a Spurs side that needed a strong showing.”

With his goal, Son became the first Tottenham player in the history of the North London derby to score multiple goals against Arsenal. Neither Harry Kane (15 goals) nor Emmanuel Adebayor (8 goals), the all-time North London Derby top scorer, have ever scored multiple goals against Arsenal for Spurs.

The post-match buzz was all about Son Heung-min’s early substitution. Many fans were puzzled by the decision to remove Tottenham’s most threatening attacking option as Arsenal’s pressure was mounting. After the game, Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou explained his decision.

Postecoglou, who also substituted James Maddison, who assisted on both of Son’s goals, explained the early substitutions by saying, “Heung-min and James Maddison were not 100% fit before the game.” In the end, it was a matter of injury prevention.

“I have a lot of respect for Son Heung-min, both as a leader and as a player, he works really hard as a frontline player,” Postecoglou said, 온라인카지노 adding that he is always happy to play with a team-first mentality.
