Son Heung-min to start up front against Sheffield Wednesday as he seeks third ’10-10′ of his career

Son Heung-min (32-Tottenham Hotspur) will start up front in his club’s English Premier League season finale against Tottenham. He will be aiming for 10 goals and 10 assists this season, a feat that has eluded him on several occasions.

Tottenham will host Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England, on Tuesday at 0:00 p.m. ET in the 38th and final round of the 2023-2024 Premier League. The match will conclude a tumultuous season for Spurs. But Spurs still have work to do. Although they have missed out on qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League, they can still qualify for the UEFA Europa League, which is awarded to the fifth-place finisher in the Premier League.

Tottenham’s last game, a 0-2 home defeat to Manchester City on September 15, kept them on 63 points. On the other hand, Chelsea, who have made a late surge, have 60 points and trail Spurs by one game. If Spurs lose away to Sheffield and Chelsea win at home to Bournemouth at the same time, the Blues, who have the goal difference advantage, will finish fifth and Spurs will drop down to the Conference, the lowest level of UEFA club competition next season. Of course, if Man City beats United in the English FA Cup later this month, Spurs will still play in the Europa League even if they finish sixth.

But that’s a big if, and Spurs need to pick up points against Sheffield Wednesday. Sheffield, who were promoted this season, were relegated early with 16 points. They have found the Premier League tough, especially after conceding a record 101 goals in 37 games.

Tottenham are expected to win, but the lid is off.

Spurs head coach Anzhi Postecoglou went with a 4-2-3-1 formation on the day. Guglielmo Vicario started in goal, while the back four consisted of, from left to right, Micky van der Vaart, Radu Dragucin, Christian Romero, and Pedro Foro. The two midfielders were Rodrigo Bentancur and Pape Sarda. The front three is made up of Brennan Johnson, Dejan Kulusevski, and James Maddison, with Son Heung-min up top.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, are playing their final game of the season with relegation assured, with Wes Foderingham in goal and a back three of Jack Robinson, Auston Trusty, and Anel Amedhodzic. The midfield five consisted of Jayden Vogtle, Gustavo Hamer, Ollie Ablaster, Ben Osborne, and Max Loewe. The front two are Cameron Archer and Ben Brereton Dias.

With 17 goals and nine assists this season, Son has a golden opportunity to make it 10-10 against Sheffield Wednesday. With their opponent having booked their place in the second tier early on, and with their defense lacking, Tottenham can feel more comfortable in their own half. Son Heung-min could thrive in this environment, picking up a goal and an assist to make it a 10-10 club.

Son hasn’t added an assist in over a month, after notching his ninth of the season against Nottingham Forest on August 8th. If he adds an assist against 카지노사이트 Sheffield United, it will be his third 10-goal, 10-assist campaign of the season, following his 2019-2020 (11 goals, 10 assists) and 2020-2021 (17 goals, 10 assists) campaigns.

It’s also worth noting that very few players have joined the 10-10 club in a Premier League season three times.

In the Premier League, Wayne Rooney has the most with five, followed by Eric Cantona and Frank Lampard with four each. Mohamed Salah, who currently plays for Liverpool, and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba have three. Joining the 10-10 Club is a chance for Son to win another Premier League Living Legend title.

Heung-min and the rest of the Tottenham squad won’t be disbanding after the game. After the game in Sheffield, they will return to London and then fly to Melbourne, Australia, 17,000 kilometers away, where they will play a friendly against Newcastle United on February 22nd. Son Heung-min is expected to return to South Korea after that game.
