It’s bittersweet to see Son Heung-min in a miserable state…a completely hardened look

Tottenham lost to Brighton 2-4 in the 19th round of the Premier League (PL) in the 2023-24 season at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, England, at 4:30 a.m. on the 29th (Korea Standard Time). This defeat left Tottenham in fifth place. 슬롯머신

It is no exaggeration to say that Tottenham had its worst game of the season except for about 20 minutes at the end of the second half. The central combination of Emerson Royal, Ben Davies, and Pierre-Emile Hoibierre was close to disaster.

Tottenham was on shaky ground even before allowing its first run to Jack Hinselwood in the 11th minute of the first half. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou failed to present any tricks to the faltering team. It is also true that there were so many injuries that there were no cards to change the bench.

Tottenham, who even gave up a penalty kick due to Dejan Kulusevski’s useless foul, collapsed helplessly and was dragged 0-4 by conceding two more goals in a row. At least, the team’s atmosphere was revived after captain Son Heung-min helped Alejo Belize recover with a sharp cross in the 36th minute of the second half. Tottenham even scored Davis’ chase goal in the 40th minute of the second half, but there was no further chase.

Son looked so depressed after the interview with the club. “I think we should talk about the bad before we talk about the good,” Son said. “Sometimes we have to be honest and accept the result and know how to criticize ourselves. This was not how we wanted to do it, nor was it our style of soccer. I am very disappointed. Still, we have to move forward because the next game is coming soon,” he said, adding that he needs to face the defeat.

Son’s loss was due to his poor performance of Tottenham-like soccer. “We have to play our game. We have no secrets, we have nothing to hide. It was a bad day for us, and our performance was bad. This should not happen. Still, the last 15 minutes only required good energy for the next game. It is a home game. We have to get three points before the new year begins,” Son said, vowing to bring back a win against Bournemouth somehow.
