Son Heung-min, who failed to stop Tottenham’s four-game losing streak despite setting a meaningful record of 120 goals in 300 appearances in the English Premier League EPL, couldn’t laugh.

Tottenham lost 4-2 to Liverpool in the 36th round of the 2023-2024 EPL at Anfield in Liverpool, England, bogging down their fourth consecutive defeat in as many as 20 years.

Son Heung-min, who started as a front-line striker and made 300 EPL appearances for the third time in Tottenham’s history, matched Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard with his 120th goal but left the stadium with his head down.

“It’s a difficult and disappointing afternoon,” Son said in an interview with his club’s official channel after the game. “We have to face it, and we have to get better and stronger.”

“Tough moments are an opportunity to unite together. At the beginning of the season, everything went well, everyone was together, everyone had fun, everyone wanted to watch our game,” he said. “As a captain, I didn’t do my part enough.”

Tottenham’s chances of reaching the European Champions League UCL next season have become very slim.

This season, only the fourth place will qualify for the next season’s Champions League.

Tottenham 18 wins, 6 draws, 11 losses, 60 points ranked fifth failed to close the gap of 7 points with Aston Villa 20 wins, 7 draws, 9 losses, 67 points.

Tottenham, who played one less game, must win all three remaining games and Aston Villa must lose both games to reverse the game.

If you lose at least once, the possibility of fourth place in arithmetic disappears completely, but the situation is difficult because it meets Manchester City, which is competing for the championship, on the 14th. 토토사이트 순위

“I always want to push the team members as hard as I can,” Son said. “Playing in the EPL doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced or young player. If you wear a uniform, you have to give everything.”

“We’re having a really hard time right now, but we’re going to keep raising our heads and endure this pain and defeat. And we’re going to keep going,” he said. “If you’re not prepared for this, it’s really a big problem. You have to be ready to challenge and fight.”

Football London gave Son Heung-min a rating of 6.

The media outlet said, “He resumed his role as a front-line striker after starting from the bench, but after moving to the left in the second half, he became much better. He created a good breakthrough scene and started teasing Liverpool’s defense.”
