Tottenham Hotspur will face Liverpool in the 34th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on May 1 at 0:30 (Korean time).
It is a fight that cannot beㅋㅋㅋ벳 conceded for 4th place. Currently, Tottenham are 5th with 54 points and Liverpool are 7th with 53 points. Also, since Liverpool have played one game less than Tottenham, the standings can change at any time. It is an important match for the right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
The atmosphere at Tottenham is not good. In the recent league, not only has there been no win in 3 matches with 1 draw and 2 losses, and the psychological shock of losing 1-6 in the face-to-face match against Newcastle United on the 23rd has yet to come out. In the subsequent match against Manchester United, Son Heung-min’s equalizer resulted in a 2-2 draw, but the hunger for victory is still there.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have been on the rise lately. The midfield maneuverability was stagnant until the beginning and middle of the season, but recently it has been in a good mood again. They are on an undefeated streak with 3 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 games, and they have raised the mood with a 2-1 win against West Ham United in the most recent match.
Tottenham has no choice but to trust Son Heung-min’s toes. Son Heung-min was a little slow at the beginning of this season, but he has been gaining strength in the second half and has scored 9 goals so far. He has a good scoring sense lately. He has scored 3 goals in his last 5 matches, and even scored an equalizer against Manchester United just before.
Son Heung-min challenges another record. So far, Son Heung-min has scored 102 Premier League goals and is ranked 33rd on the all-time scoring list. Above that is Cristiano Ronaldo with 103 goals. Ronaldo scored a total of 103 goals in seven years at Manchester United, which ranks him 32nd among all-time Premier League players. If Son Heung-min scores just one more goal in the remaining games, it will be tied with this record.
What players are on it? If Son Heung-min scored 102 goals and Ronaldo scored 103 goals, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba scored 104 goals. Attention is focusing on whether Son Heung-min will be able to equal Ronaldo’s record against Liverpool.
