EPL official best 11 even recognized as a legend of Son Heung-min following the BBC
The English Premier League (EPL) secretariat announced the best 11 in the fourth round on its official website.
On the 5th (Korea Standard Time), EPL announced the best 11 in the fourth round on its official website. The list was selected by “EPL Legend” Alan Shearer. Son Heung-min, captain of South Korea and captain of Tottenham Hotspur, was proudly named here.
Just a day earlier, British media “BBC” selected the best 11 in the fourth round of the English Premier League (EPL) for the 2023/24 season and announced the team of the week. Son Heung-min was placed as the left striker among the best 11. Son Heung-min is recognized by ‘legendary’ and ‘BBC’.
Son Heung-min’s team Tottenham Hotspur met Burnley in the fourth round of the EPL at Turfmoor Stadium in Burnley, England, on the 3rd (Korea Standard Time) and won 5-2. Son Heung-min, who started the day, completed a hat trick by scoring three goals in a game, starting with his first goal of the season.
Tottenham prepared for the 4-2-3-1 screening. Son Heung-min was placed on the front line. This season, Son Heung-min turned into a helper rather than a scorer and had no score. He focused on passing rather than shooting, and as a captain, he played with an altruistic appearance rather than a selfish appearance.
But the team’s situation was not good. Front-line striker Hishalisson’s slump continued and needed a change. Tottenham manager Enje Postecoglou took out a card to use Son Heung-min as a front-line striker.
Son Heung-min met the manager’s expectations with a hat trick. In the 16th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min penetrated and received a pass. After exchanging passes with Solomon, both the opposing defender and goalkeeper scored an equalizer with cheating chip shots.
In the 18th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min received Solomon’s pass and scored his second goal. Son Heung-min’s unique accurate shooting ability stood out. In the 20th minute of the second half, he completed a hat trick. From the back, the prisoner sent a forward pass to Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min lightly held the pass with his right foot and fired a powerful left-footed shot to make a hat trick.
After the game, soccer statistics companies gave good ratings to Son Heung-min. British media ‘Football London’ rated Son Heung-min as 10 out of 10. The media said, ‘Son Heung-min’s first goal was beautiful. The second goal was calm. It works perfectly for coach Postecoglou’s tactics,’ he praised. Another statistics company, “Huscoard Dotcom,” gave it 9.6 points. Foot Mob also scored 9.6 points. Both had the highest ratings among both teams.
Tottenham Hotspur have found a new captain ahead of the 2023/24 season. Harry Kane, who was also a symbol of Tottenham, left for Bayern Munich. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is expected to move. At the same time, we needed someone to lead the team internally.
Tottenham’s new captain is Son Heung-min. Tottenham manager Postecoglou said, “Son Heung-min has great leadership on and off the field. Ideal as our new argument. Everyone knows Son Heung-min is a world-class player. He is respected beyond the group within the team, he said about the appointment of Son Heung-min as captain.
The British media were also surprised. At the same time, he acknowledged Son Heung-min. England’s “Football London” said, “The appointment of captain Son Heung-min surprised Tottenham people. However, Son Heung-min proved that coach Postecoglou’s choice was right. Tottenham made a good choice to give Son Heung-min the captain’s armband with Lloris and Kane gone,’ he said.
Son Heung-min is also the captain of the Korean national soccer team. He also said he is currently Tottenham’s longest first-team player and the hottest star in the club, but added, “In fact, I was wondering about Son Heung-min’s appointment as captain within Tottenham.”
The reason was leadership. The media said, “It is because Son Heung-min is a respected player in the club, but not many people saw him as a Tottenham leader. Son Heung-min explained, “Even though he is one of the team’s elders, the 31-year-old has not been part of Tottenham’s leader group.”
Being well positioned in the team and influencing in the locker room are slightly different. “Football London” included “Loris, Kane, Eric Dyer and Pierre-Emil Hoivier” in the leader group. So when Son Heung-min was appointed captain, there was a surprise inside and outside the club,’ he said.
Football London also highlighted Son Heung-min’s post-match behavior. The media said, “After the last whistle, Son Heung-min visited all his teammates on the field and hugged them.” I had a few words with all the team members. He emphasized Son Heung-min’s leadership, saying, “I left a deep impression inside the club through daily interactions with the team.”
Son Heung-min led the team to victory by taking the lead in scoring as he is the captain in this game. This is the fourth hat trick of his career in EPL. Son Heung-min said on his SNS after the game, “I am proud of the amazing performance of the team members. We welcome the A-match break in a good mood. “Thank you for everyone’s great support,” he said.
Praise for ‘hat trick’ Son Heung-min continued. Peter Smith, a British ‘Sky Sports’, said, “It was a wonderful finish for Son Heung-min. He led the front line,” he said. Clinton Morris said, “A tremendous finishing ability. It’s fantastic,” he praised.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min scored 106 goals in his EPL career with this hat trick, ranking 30th in his EPL career. The equalizer tied Chelsea legend Didier Drogba with 104 goals. Soon, he added two goals and settled in 30th place with Tottenham senior Darren Bent.
Son Heung-min was not the only one who scored a hat trick on the day. The match between Manchester City and Fulham was held at the same time as the Tottenham match. Manchester City beat Fulham 5-1, and Elling Holan scored a hat trick 안전한메이저
Holan scored consecutive goals in the 13th minute of the second half, 25th minute of the second half, and extra time in the second half, leading the team to a great victory. He again showed his potential to become the top scorer with 36 goals last season. With this hat trick, Holan scored his sixth goal in the league and became the top scorer. Sopascore gave Holan a 9.6 rating.
Holan was not the end.
