It is evaluated that Richarlichon (25) was much more ‘threatening’ than Son Heung-min (30).
Tottenham won 3-1 in the 27th round home game of the 2022/23 season English Premier League (EPL) against Nottingham Forest held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 12th (Korean time).
Son Heung-min, who started as a left-sided striker, shook the net with a shot after Richarlison’s side cross in the 17th minute of the second half. It was the 6th goal of the season and the 99th goal in EPL history.
Richarlisson, who recently complained of ‘lack of participation’, started in three official games. On this day, he was involved in all three goals scored by Tottenham and performed well.
At the beginning of the first half, he cut the net with a powerful right-footed shot in front of the goal, but swallowed regret as it was declared invalid after a VAR review. Then, in the 19th minute of the first half, Harry Kane’s cross from the right side during the goal process served as the starting point for scoring. In the 35th minute of the first half, he drew a foul from the penalty box and induced a penalty kick (PK). In the second half, he recorded an assist by helping Son Heung-min’s goal. 안전놀이터
According to British media ‘HITC’ on the 12th, soccer expert Chris Sutton, known as the ‘Human Octopus’, said, “The VAR canceled Richarlison’s first half shot should have been recognized as a goal.” He continued, “Regardless of whether he scored a goal or not, Richarli Song showed an influential performance in Tottenham’s forward line. It is a part that Tottenham needed after being eliminated from the FA Cup.”
In particular, conflicting evaluations of Richarli Song and Son Heung-min drew attention. “They played very different games,” Sutton said. “Son Heung-min scored in the second half but was ‘very quiet’. Richarlison was ‘much more menacing’ on the right flank.”
