Tottenham Hotspur lost the North London derby against Arsenal, putting the race for fourth place on edge. Son Heung-min's performance, who scored at the end of the game, also faded.

Tottenham lost 2-3 in the 35th round of the 2023-24 EPL against Arsenal held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 28th (Korean time).

5th place Tottenham, who suffered two consecutive losses, failed to narrow the point gap with 4th place Aston Villa (67 points), with 18 wins, 6 draws, and 9 losses (60 points). In the EPL, the top 4th place can qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal maintained its lead with 25 wins, 5 draws, and 5 losses (80 points), widening the gap with Manchester City (76 points), which had played 2 games less, to 4 points. 파워볼사이트

Son Heung-min, who started as a starter, played as a front-line striker and left-side striker for 90 minutes and scored one goal, but was unable to prevent the defeat.

League leader Arsenal stepped up the offensive from the beginning and pushed Tottenham.

Kai Havertz scored a goal for Arsenal in the 13th minute of the first half, but the goal was canceled for offside. But there was also a moment of disappointment. Arsenal took the lead two minutes later due to an opponent's error on a corner kick. Bukayo Saka's left-footed cross hit the head of Tottenham's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and became an own goal. Tottenham launched a counterattack through set pieces. However, Christian Romero's header hit the goalpost in the 20th minute of the first half, and Mickey van der Pen's goal three minutes later was canceled for offside. Arsenal, who had overcome the crisis of conceding goals, succeeded in scoring an additional goal in the 27th minute of the first half. In a counterattack situation, Saka caught the ball given away by Kai Havertz, aimed for the corner with his left foot, and hit the Tottenham net. Tottenham, who were two goals behind, suffered a hamstring injury in the 32nd minute of the first half and had to be hastily replaced by Brennan Jones. Arsenal once again opened the door to Tottenham's disarray. From a corner kick in the 38th minute of the first half, Havertz deflected a cross passed by Declan Rice with his head and scored his third goal. Tottenham, who allowed three goals in the first half, changed their midfield at the start of the second half by replacing Rodrigo Bentancur with Pape Sar. However, the flow of the game did not change easily. Tottenham continued to show insecurity in defense, and Arsenal continued to create threatening scenes through quick side penetrations. As the frustrating game continued, Tottenham added Yves Bissouma and Richarlison in the 19th minute of the second half. The player replacement took effect quickly. Richarlison and Romero attempted a surprise forward pressure and stole the ball from the opposing side. Romero immediately shot and scored a consolation goal. Tottenham, who set the tone, stepped up the offensive and followed up with one more goal in the 42nd minute of the second half. Ben Davis was fouled during a contest in front of the Arsenal goal and was awarded a penalty kick. And Son Heung-min took over as the kicker and scored the consolation goal with a powerful right-footed shot. Son Heung-min, who tasted a goal for the first time in about a month since the match against Luton Town on the 31st of last month, scored his 16th league goal and tied for 7th place in scoring with Phil Foden (Manchester City) and Jarrod Bowen (West Ham). Afterwards, Tottenham continued to attack to tie the score. However, as the finishing passes and crosses were repeatedly blocked by the Arsenal defense, they were unable to create a decisive chance and ended up losing by one goal. 성인웹툰
