Arsenal’s North London rival also defended Son

Coach Mikel Arteta covered Son Heung-min.

Tottenham Hotspur lost 0-2 to Manchester City in the 34th round of the Premier League (PL) in the 2023-24 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 4 a.m. on the 15th. As a result, Tottenham failed to advance to the UCL as it became arithmetically impossible to reverse Aston Villa in fourth place.

The first half was a tight flow. Manchester City and Tottenham blocked the opponent’s attack through strong pressure. Both teams had chances to score, but they overcame the crisis due to the performance of defenders and goalkeepers. The first half ended 0-0 without scoring.

Manchester City went ahead first. Kevin De Bruyne, who received a pass from Bernardu Silva in the 6th minute of the second half, scored a ground ball cross from the right side. Erling Holland rushed in and pushed it in.

Tottenham continued to tap Manchester City’s goal and Son Heung-min took a decisive opportunity. Manuel Akanji’s mistake in the 40th minute of the second half, Brennan Johnson, did not miss it and passed it to Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min shot left in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper, but he was blocked by the goalkeeper.

Manchester City scored an additional goal. In the 44th minute of the second half, Phil Foden put the ball into the back of the defense, and Jeremy Doku jumped quickly and caught it. Doku was declared a penalty when he tripped over Pedro Porro in the penalty box. Holland played as a kicker and tricked the goalkeeper into the net. In the end, the game ended with Tottenham’s 0-2 defeat.

There is no such thing as soccer, but if Son Heung-min had scored a point in a 1-1 situation, how would the flow of the game have changed? If Tottenham had a tie with Manchester City, it would have been a very good number for Arsenal. If Manchester City had just one point against Tottenham, it would have been tied with Arsenal, and Arsenal could have overtaken Manchester City to take the lead in the league in terms of the difference in points.

He could have hated Son, but Arteta was asked about Son’s missed big chance against Manchester City. Arteta replied, “If I had to pick a player that I could solve the problem, I would have picked Son.”

“Michael Jordan scored a lot of goals. But he also had good days and bad days. That’s the beauty of sports,” he added. He covered up Son’s mistake.

Son Heung-min felt the mistake, too. He said, “I am human, too. The Manchester City goalkeeper made a good decision. But I am responsible for missing a decisive opportunity. The team worked hard and tried to get good results. As players, we did our best for the team and for us.” 스포츠토토 사이트 추천
