There is a slight cloud hanging over Son Heung-min’s (Tottenham) bid to score his 200th goal in Europe. Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League (EPL) announced on its website on Oct. 30 (KST) the injury status of the team ahead of its EPL Round 7 match against Liverpool in the early hours of Oct. 1 with the headline, “Coach Angie Postecoglou (Australia) Update on Maddison-Johnson-Son Heung-min”. “Son Heung-min and James Maddison, who were substituted early in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal last weekend due to injury concerns, have trained this week,” Tottenham explained, adding that “Postecoglou emphasized the need to assess their fitness once more ahead of the Liverpool match.”Son and Maddison combined for two goals in the team’s 2-2 draw away to Arsenal in the sixth round of the 2023-2024 EPL on April 24. Madison assisted on both of Son’s multi-goal games. The pair were substituted somewhat prematurely in the 34th minute of the second half for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, respectively .It was a pre-emptive move due to injury concerns, and it is understood that neither had trained fully in midweek. “After the Arsenal game, Son and Maddison weren’t feeling well,” said Postecoglou, “but they trained today and went beyond what we needed. But they both need to improve their form.” This means that Son, who is one goal away from reaching 200 goals in Europe, will have to start his quest for the record in less than perfect shape. Striker Brennan Johnson, who injured his hamstring against Arsenal last weekend, has 스포츠토토존 been ruled out. “It’s not a serious injury, but we’ve decided not to play him against Liverpool,” Postecoglou said.
