[엑스포츠뉴스 김정현 인턴기자] Toby Alderweireld showed confidence in a series of zero-running games.
Tottenham Hotspur won an away game against Fulham in Round 33 of the Premier League in the 2020/21 season held on the 5th (Korean time) by 1-0.
In the 19th minute, Son Heung-min’s cross from the left side was connected by Dele Ali with a hind foot heel kick, which was hit by the opponent’s defender Tobi Adarabioyo, leading to an own goal, and the game was split.
Tottenham recovered their confidence by recording two consecutive wins as well as two consecutive zero-point matches after winning a 4-0 win against Burnley in the 26th round.
Toby Alderweireld, who started playing full-time after the game ended, mentioned the possibility of entering fourth place in an interview with the club.
He said,’Honestly, we must show better performance. It was an away game in the Premier League, and today’s game wasn’t easy. It wasn’t easy to show our characteristics, but it showed well in the first half. He said he was shaken in the second half, but he kept 3 points.
He continued, `It would be nice if he scored the first goal and scored additional goals, but he created many good opportunities. However, it gave many opportunities to the other person as well. Nevertheless, it was nice to have a zero-run game. We have to head for the higher 4th place and put our lives and deaths on the upcoming Crystal Palace and the North London Derby. He said, “We need to increase our confidence by winning the matchless game.”
Tottenham will have a London Derby match against Crystal Palace on the 9th and Arsenal on the 15th, followed by Aston Villa and Newcastle, which have recently been sluggish.
The reason why you need to maximize the points in these four matches is that the following schedule is against Manchester United in second place and Everton in fifth place in a row.
And in the meantime, the UEFA Europa League schedule is also stuck. Dynamo Zagreb and Tottenham, who have a 16-final confrontation, are also burdened with their campaign to Croatia.
If Tottenham maintains his changed offense on the upcoming league schedule and maintains a zero-point match, he will be sufficiently competitive in the Champions League ticket competition.
Tottenham’s victory on this day led to a second straight victory in the league, and raised the ranking to eighth with 42 points. It is one point difference from Liverpool, who played 7th place in one more game.
Tottenham are only 5 points apart from Chelsea, which is currently in fourth place. Among the Premier League schedule with 12 games remaining, it is noteworthy whether Tottenham’s realistic goal of securing Champions League tickets will become a reality.
