Son Heung-min Silent After Poor Performance in Tottenham’s Crushing Defeat to Newcastle

[골닷컴] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = ‘Captain Sonny’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) remained silent. Son Heung-min, who started as a starter in the away game at Newcastle United, was substituted early in the game due to poor performance, failing to make much of an impact. Tottenham suffered a crushing defeat to Newcastle, conceding 4 goals that day.

Son Heung-min started as a starter in the 33rd round away game of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) against Newcastle held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England on the 13th (Korean time). Wearing the captain’s armband, he played 58 minutes before being substituted in the 13th minute of the second half.

Son Heung-min, who has always been a front-line striker, caught everyone’s attention with a brilliant right-footed out-front pass in the 15th minute of the first half, but failed to show his presence at all after that. Tottenham struggled against Newcastle and was not able to distribute the ball to the front line smoothly, but overall, the performance itself was not good, with Son Heung-min frequently losing possession.

In the end, Son Heung-min failed to exert much influence in the offensive zone, and when Tottenham collapsed after conceding three goals, he ended the game as a substitute in the 13th minute of the second half. The face of Son Heung-min, who was replaced, was quite dark. He also had an expression of regret and disappointment, as if he was acknowledging that the game did not go well that day.

According to Whoscored.com, a media outlet specializing in soccer statistics, Son Heung-min did not have a single shot or dribble break in 58 minutes. Two key passes were the only offensive stats that could be shown. The number of times possession was lost was 7, and the pass success rate was 82%. Son Heung-min received a rating of 5.94 points.

On this day, Tottenham was dragged by giving up the first goal to Newcastle in the 30th minute of the first half. When Anthony Gordon (England) stabbed a pass, Alexander Isak (Sweden) penetrated into the penalty box and easily beat Mickey van der Pen (Netherlands) before scoring into the net with his right foot. Goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario (Italy) was also unable to do anything because he was sucked into the corner of the goal.

Tottenham collapsed after allowing a few goals. In the 32nd minute of the first half, Gordon broke Van der Pen’s balance with a folding motion inside the penalty box and then hit the goal net with his right foot. In the 6th minute of the second half, Isaac succeeded in penetrating the back space from the halfway line and scored a multiple goal with a one-on-one chance, and in the 42nd minute of the second half, Fabian Shea (Switzerland) hit the net with a header from Gordon’s corner kick.

Tottenham, who lost 0-4 on this day and failed to gain points, remained at 60 points (18 wins, 6 draws, 8 losses). The ranking fell one place to 5th. They had the same number of points as 4th place Aston Villa (18 wins, 6 draws, 8 losses, 60 points), which is the Maginot line for advancing to the UEFA Champions League (UCL), but fell behind in goal difference. Tottenham will invite Arsenal to their home stadium on the 28th to play the ‘North London Derby’.
