English Professional Soccer Premier League (EPL) Tottenham Hotspur “captain” Son Heung-min will attempt to make league history.
Tottenham Hotspur will host West Ham United in the 15th round of the 2023-2024 EPL on Aug. 8 at 5:15 a.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.
Tottenham is currently fifth in the league with 8 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses (27 points). They are just a point behind fourth-place Manchester City (30 points), so a win on the road could propel them into the top half of the table.
Son Heung-min is expected to start the game. Tottenham, who are winless in their last four games, will look to turn things around with Son, who scored a goal and assist in the last four games against Manchester City.
Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou was quoted in the British newspaper The Guardian on Sunday as saying, “Son is top class in everything he does. He has set an example as a soccer player and as a human being,” he said, expressing high hopes for Son’s performance.
The captain is not only looking to help his team escape with a win, but also to set a new league record.
With his goal against Man City, Son scored his ninth league goal.
He needs one more goal to reach double digits. If he scores against West Ham, it will be his eighth consecutive season with double-digit league goals.
Only six players in EPL history have scored in double figures in eight or more consecutive seasons: Sadio Mane, Thierry Henry (8+ seasons), Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero (9+ seasons), Frank Lampard (10), and Wayne Rooney (11).
If Son scores against West Ham, 온라인카지노 he’ll join the likes of Mane and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
There’s plenty of reason to expect a goal. In addition to his recent form, Son is a strong matchup for the Hammers.
He has faced the Hammers 17 times in all competitions, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists. His team record is 8 wins, 3 draws, and 6 losses.
With one more goal, he will reach the 113-goal milestone in the EPL. That would tie him with Ian Wright, a former Arsenal legend.
