Bench Departure’ Son Heung-min, 5th goal in 4 minutes as a substitute… Tottenham 2-0 win + 4th place
Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who started off the bench, scored the league’s fifth goal in 4 minutes as a substitute.
Tottenham defeated West Ham 2-0 in the 2022-2023 English Premier League round 24 home game held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time). In the 23rd minute of the second half with a 1-0 lead, Son Heung-min, who came on as a substitute, scored an additional goal in the 27th minute of the second half.
Tottenham recorded 13 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses (42 points), beating Newcastle United (41 points), who played one less game.

West Ham only had 20 points.
As Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who had cholecystitis surgery earlier this month, vacated the bench again for a break, coach Christian Stellini took over the helm. Son Heung-min, who had only scored 4 league goals before this game, was put on the bench, and Hischarlisson was selected as a starter on the left wing. It is highly likely that Stellini made the decision in consultation with manager Conte. In place of Ivan Perisic at left wingback, Ben Davies was put in to change the left line.
Excluding injuries, Son Heung-min started off the bench five months after the match against Leicester City in September last year. He scored a hat-trick in the 13th minute at the time, but on this day he also scored another goal as a substitute. Son Heung-min was substituted for Hischarlisson in the 23rd minute of the second half. Four minutes later, on a counterattack chance, Harry Kane stabbed a penetrating pass. Son Heung-min advanced the ball with a perfect right-footed first touch and finished it simply with a right-footed inside shot.
Son Heung-min and Kane increased their Premier League record for most joint goals to 45. Son Heung-min, who had been silent for 5 consecutive league games, held a ‘click ceremony’, a proprietary patent after a long time. It is his 5th league goal and 9th goal (3 assists) including the European Champions League and FA Cup this season온라인바카라. With his 98th goal in the Premier League in his personal career, he has two goals left to reach the 100th goal.

Padded and gloved, Son sat on the bench right behind Coach Stellini. He watched the match beside Pedro Poro. In the 12th minute of the first half, a ball kicked by Hischarlisson hit the hand of Thilo Kehrer, but a penalty kick was not called. Tottenham performed poorly in the first half with Son Heung-min missing. It was only during the extra time of the first half that the offense went on the offensive. Hischarlisson, who received Kane’s space penetrating pass, fired a left-footed turning shot, but it was blocked by goalkeeper Ukash Fabianski, who narrowed the angle. Dejan Klusevski’s corner kick was headed in by Christian Romero, but it went wide of the crossbar.
Ahead of the kick-off in the second half, Perisic approached Coach Stellini, who was sitting on the bench, and was caught on the relay screen. In the 2nd minute of the second half, Hischarlisson’s shot went straight to the goalkeeper. About 10 minutes into the second half, the relay camera caught Son Heung-min warming up.In the 11th minute of the second half, Pierre-Emile Hoivier stabbed a through pass in Tottenham’s counterattack chance. Left wingback Ben Davies, who dug into the space behind the defense, gave away a pass, and right wingback Emerson Royal calmly finished with a diagonal shot with his right foot. This is Emerson’s awakening after signing a rival prisoner in the winter transfer market. Emerson scored his second league goal.
Then West Ham’s Jerod Bowen’s shot was blocked by Tottenham goalkeeper Fraser Foster. After receiving an Emerson pass, Klusepski’s left-footed shot was blocked by the opponent’s goalkeeper.
