The save of the goalkeeper and the opposing goalkeeper prevented Son Heung-min (29, Tottenham)’s three consecutive goals and a joint lead in scoring in the English Premier League (EPL).

On the 14th (Korean time) at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, in the 2020-21 season EPL home game, Harry Kane’s heading opened in the 25th minute, but scored an equalizer in the middle of the second half and drew 1-1. Tottenham climbed to the sixth place with 30 points.

Son Heung-min, who scored No. 100 in his career against Tottenham against Leeds United on the 2nd and 150th in Europe on the 6th against Brentford in the League Cup on the 6th, unfortunately failed to hunt for the goal that day, leading the scorer (13 goals) Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) And could not be shoulder to shoulder.

On the 11th, Son Heung-min, who took a break from the FA Cup round of 64 against Marine FC on the 11th, to the game after 8 days, seemed light. In the 19th minute of the first half, Serge Orier’s cross was redirected with a sensuous right-footed shot, but the goalkeeper’s toe was blocked. Five minutes later, he connected Tangwi Ndombele’s cross to the diving header, but again hit the ground in a super save.

Son Heung-min seized a decisive opportunity in a counterattack situation in the 26th minute of the second half. Ndombele received an infiltrating pass forward and struck the final defence, and then took a left-footed shot diagonally from the left side of the penalty area towards the opposite goal. However, the ball hit Fulham’s right post. Son Heung-min could not hide his depressed expression.

Tottenham, swept away by Fulham’s counterattack, was eventually equalized by Ivan Cavalley in the 29th minute of the second half. In the 44th minute of the second half, Tottenham passed Son Heung-min’s cross into the goal, but Sergio Regilon put Son Heung-min’s position offside.
