Ivan Perisic made a collaboration with Son Heung-min after a long time.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Brighton 2-1 in the 30th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 8th at 11:00 pm (Korean time). As a result, Tottenham (53 points, 16 wins, 5 draws, 9 losses, 55 goals and 42 losses) is in 5th place.
It was a big match with 6 points. Tottenham, who is in crisis due to large and small injuries, and Brighton (6th place, 46 points), which is causing a sensation, faced each other. It was a game that would be a watershed in the TOP4 fight to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
Tottenham ran out of options. As expected, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski were up front. Ivan Perisic and Pedro Poro scrambled for the side wingback position, which was on the verge of being wiped out. The midfield was played by Oliver Skip and Pierre-Emile Hoivier. The back three consisted of Clement Lenglet, Eric Dyer and Christian Romero. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Concerns were pouring in about the left flank combination. Son Heung-min and Perisic played together for 30 games this season, including all competitions, but only scored one joint goal. In particular, Son Heung-min seemed to be losing his advantage, such as being pushed down to a low position by Perisic, who was advancing forward. The synergy that the two players will create was the key to victory against Brighton. 스포츠토토
The winner was Tottenham. In the 10th and 10th minute of the first half, Perisic passed the pass to Son Heung-min, who was in a close position. In the gaps in Brighton’s defense, he calmly looked at the angle and looked for opportunities. Son Heung-min’s bold shot was sucked into the corner of the goal and became the opening goal. The most worrisome combination of Son Heung-min and Perisic resulted in a score like heaven.
In the remaining time, Tottenham allowed Lewis Dunk to equalize, but Kane scored after entering the second half to win the game. Tottenham laid the foundation for the recapture of the TOP4, and Son Heung-min completed the great record of ‘EPL’s 100th goal’.
Tottenham must continue to have a chance to rebound. Son Heung-min also continues to hunt for goals. Tottenham will challenge for a winning streak against Bournemouth at home on the night of the 15th.
