Son Heung-min started in the 14th round of the 2023/24 Premier League against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 4th (Korea time) and contributed to the 3-3 draw with one goal and one assist. Prior to the match, Tottenham, which was mired in a three-game losing streak with Chelsea (1-4), Wolverhampton Wanderers (1-2), and Aston Villa (1-2), succeeded in escaping its losing streak with a golden draw away from Manchester City.

Starting as a forward striker in the 4-2-3-1 formation at Tottenham, Son scored the first goal six minutes into the first half to gain the upper hand. After blocking Manchester City’s corner kick attack, Tottenham immediately launched a counterattack. Dejan Kulusevski found Son rushing from the center line and scored a penetrating pass forward. After catching the ball, Son ran towards the penalty box at high speed.

Entering the box, Son wasted no time shooting a right footed shot, penetrating the side of Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes and shaking the net, leading to Tottenham’s first goal. It was the moment when Son scored his ninth goal of this season. However, for a moment, Tottenham scored an equalizer just three minutes after Son’s first goal. The equalizer was even his own goal.

In the 8th minute of the first half, opposing striker Julian Alvarez, who was a kicker in a Manchester City free-kick situation, scored a right-footed cross into the penalty box. The cross just passed the head of the jumped Holan, hit Son Heung-min’s thigh in the back and went into Tottenham’s net. Later, Phil Foden scored a come-from-behind goal in the 31st minute of the first half, raising concerns over Tottenham’s four consecutive losses.

However, Tottenham successfully avoided defeat by displaying its power in the second half. Giovanni Rossellso scored the equalizer in the 24th minute of the second half with a wonderful left-footed shot. At this time, it was Son Heung-min who passed to Rossellso. Son Heung-min scored one goal and one assist on the day. Afterwards, the two teams exchanged one more goal each, ending their 90-minute battle 3-3.

The game ended in a draw, but Tottenham still laughed. With almost 1.8 teams due to a number of injuries recently, the team secured a valuable draw against Manchester City, where all prominent star players including Erling Hallan participated.

Son Heung-min, in particular, was named Man of the Match, which refers to the man of the match, as he recorded one goal, one assist and one earned goal. Then, he made eye contact with Foster at the first training session and started to harden for the next match. He even wore goalie gloves to induce reactions from Tottenham fans. Fans commented, “I think Sonny would do well.”

Son, who has turned into a striker this season as well as a flanker, has displayed outstanding performance in penetrating passes to the extent that it is deemed appropriate to call him a playmaker in actual stadiums. Fans are encouraging Son, saying that he would be a good goalie as he is physically fit.
