Heung-min Son (30, Tottenham Hotspur), who was relieved by writing help in the first match of the English Premier League (EPL) for the 2022-2023 season, will start hunting for goals in earnest.

Tottenham will play an away match against Chelsea in the second round of the 2022-2023 EPL at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 15th at 0:30 (Korean time).

Tottenham Hotspur, who started the season pleasantly with a 4-1 win over Southampton in the first round held at home on the 6th, are challenging for a second straight win.

The match against Chelsea, which is expected to compete at the top, is a game that can be used as a test of strength for Tottenham, which is aiming for the 4th or higher position recorded last season by reinforcing its power with active signings.

The two teams met in two league matches and the League Cup semi-final last season, with Tottenham losing both.

They lost the league 0-3, 0-2, and in the League Cup, they lost 0-2 in the first leg and 0-1 in the second, so they were pushed 0-3 on aggregate and did not reach the final. We can expect better results than last season only when we overcome this ‘natural enemy’.

It is also the reason why Tottenham’s strongest ‘attacking duo’ Son Heung-min and Harry Kane’s goal scorers in the season become more desperate in this match.

In the match against Southampton, Son Heung-min and Kane were unable to score goals, and at Tottenham, Ryan Sessegnon, Eric Dier and Dejan Kulusevsky tasted the goals, and the opponent’s own goal was added, leading to a complete win.

Son Heung-min scored the first attack point of the season by assisting with a cross in the 31st minute of the first half, which was tight 1-1, when Dyer scored the final goal from the comeback.

Following the winning goal against Manchester City last season, he increased his attacking points in the first game of the league for two consecutive seasons, foreshadowing his performance from the beginning.

It is expected that Hischarlisson, one of Tottenham’s key transfer students before Chelsea, will join the attack in earnest.

Hischarlisson, who moved from Everton to Tottenham ahead of this season, was disciplined for throwing flares into the crowd during a match last season, and could not play in the opening game.

Chelsea, who finished third in the EPL after Manchester City and Liverpool last season, won 1-0 thanks to Jorginho’s penalty kick in the first round against Everton, before meeting Tottenham in their home opening game.
