English professional soccer team Tottenham and ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min aim for a rebound in the ‘North London Derby’ against Arsenal.

Tottenham will play a home game against Arsenal in the 35th round of the 2023-2024 Premier League (EPL) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, at 10 pm (Korean time) on the 28th.

Tottenham will play the game 15 days after the 33rd round away game against Newcastle on the 13th, as the 34th round scheduled for the 20th was postponed due to the opponent Manchester City’s English Football Association (FA) Cup schedule.

In the previous game against Newcastle, Tottenham was defeated 0-4, ending their undefeated streak of 3 league games (2 wins, 1 draw) and falling to 5th place in the EPL (60 points).

While Tottenham was not playing, 4th place Aston Villa recorded consecutive wins and reached 66 points, 6 points behind Tottenham, who had played 2 games less.

Starting with this game against Arsenal, Tottenham faces a series of difficult opponents such as Chelsea and Liverpool, and is in a situation where they need to wash away their sluggish performance against Newcastle and create a foundation to start chasing fourth place again.

Arsenal, who is currently in the lead (77 points), also needs to win if they want to further beat their pursuers such as Liverpool (74 points) and Manchester City (73 points).

This is an important game for Son Heung-min as well.

Son Heung-min, who has 15 goals and 9 assists in the league this season, has not scored in three games since the 30th round against Luton Town at the end of last month.

In particular, he appeared as a starter in the game against Newcastle, but was replaced by Dejan Kulusevski in the 13th minute of the second half while the team was struggling, leaving him disappointed as he played the shortest amount of time as a starter in the league this season.

There are high expectations that he will return as a problem solver in this game, as he played well against Arsenal, scoring 7 goals and 2 assists in 17 league games and 2 League Cup games.

In the 9th round away game against Arsenal last September, Son Heung-min was responsible for both the goal that tied the score at 1-1 and the goal that balanced the score again at 2-2, leading to a 2-2 draw, confirming his strong side.

Son Heung-min’s challenge to ’10 goals and 10 assists in the league’ continues.

If Son Heung-min adds just one assist, he will achieve 10 goals and 10 assists for the third time in his career in the EPL, following the 2019-2020 season (11 goals, 10 assists) and the 2020-2021 season (17 goals, 10 assists).

With the return of Brazilian striker Richarlison, who has barely played since last month due to a knee injury, whether Son Heung-min will stand in the front line or on the left side may also serve as a variable in the search for attack points.

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton’s Hwang Hee-chan is preparing for the 35th round of the EPL against Luton Town at 11pm on the 27th.

Hwang Hee-chan, who returned from a hamstring (muscle behind the thigh) injury, recently completed the warm-up by starting two consecutive games.

In the 29th round match against Bournemouth held on the 25th, he shook the goal net, but had the misfortune of having his goal canceled after a teammate’s foul was pointed out by video review (VAR). Attention is being paid to whether he will be able to score his first goal on his return.

Wolverhampton is currently ranked 12th in the league (43 points), and Luton Town is 18th (25 points). 토토사이트
