Attention is focused on the first goal against Manchester City

Tottenham tied Manchester City 3-3 in the 14th round of the Premier League in the 2023-24 season at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, the U.K. on the 4th (Korea time). Son Heung-min opened the match by scoring the first goal against Manchester City, and the two teams later engaged in a fierce battle.

Son scored the first goal in the situation of Tottenham’s fast attack in the sixth minute of the first half. Tottenham’s teammate Kulusevski gave a lobbing pass to Son, who was speeding toward Manchester City, and Son overcame a ball competition with Doku to break through the back space of defense. Son, who penetrated to the right of the penalty area, scored the goal with a right-footed diagonal shot. 스포츠토토

At the moment when Son Heung-min sprinted with Kulusevski’s lobbing pass, Tottenham’s wingback Udoji was racing toward Manchester City’s camp on the left side, but suddenly stopped running and appeared to give up the attack development.

In response, Football London in England said, “Udozi thought Tottenham had no chance to score the first goal in the match against Manchester City. Just seconds before Kulusevski made a pass by selecting Son Heung-min, Udozi stopped running just before crossing the center line. Udozi reached out his hand judging that Tottenham was not at a level where they could succeed in such a fast attack. There was no reason for Udoji or Gapja to stop. Udozi already thought Tottenham wasted their chance to counterattack against Manchester City.”

He also shed light on Son Heung-min’s performance in scoring in a fastball situation where his teammate also gave up, saying, “Son Heung-min is a player who creates magical moments even when things don’t go his way.”

Son Heung-min even finished scoring by winning a ball competition with new Manchester City striker Doku, who was marking himself in a fastball situation in the early stages of the match against Manchester City. The Manchester Evening News in England mentioned Son Heung-min’s first goal, saying, “Doku lost helplessly in Son Heung-min’s scoring situation.”

Kulusevski, who assisted Son Heung-min with the first goal, scored one goal and one assist in the match against Manchester City. While Kulusevski was listed on the BBC’s Best 11 Premier League Week, the BBC also evaluated that “Kulusevski showed a tremendous through ball against Son Heung-min.”

Son scored an own goal in the 9th minute of the first half after scoring the first goal in the match against Manchester City. Then, in the 24th minute of the second half, he assisted Lo Celso in scoring. Son Heung-min is the fifth player ever to score, assist, and own goal in a single Premier League game.

Son Heung-min was also named the most valuable player of the game (MOM) selected by the Premier League secretariat while showing off his threatening fastball ability in the match against Manchester City. Son Heung-min was selected as the MOM by beating Holland, who received 40.8 percent of the support in a fan vote involving 41,414 people, and 33.3 percent of the votes.
