Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur F.C. has set a milestone. He is now in the same position as Thierry Henry, the best legend of the English Premier League.
Son Heung-min scored one goal and two assists to Newcastle United in the 16th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-24 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on the 11th (Korea time), leading his team to a 4-1 victory.
Son, who started as a left wing forward, accumulated two assists in the first half alone. He repeatedly dominated the match with Newcastle right-back Kieran Trippier in one-on-one matches, and helped Destiny Udozi and Hisarlison score with a low cross after dribbling.
In the second half, Son became the “solver.” In the 38th minute of the second half when his team was leading 3-0, Son tripped over the opponent’s goalkeeper in the penalty box and won a penalty kick. As a kicker himself, he handled the penalty neatly. His 10th goal in the league.
A milestone was set. Son has scored double digits in the EPL for eight consecutive seasons. He has scored more than 10 goals every time except his first season as a member of Tottenham Hotspur. This is a milestone that has continued from the 2016-17 season to this season.
This is highly valuable in that he has consistently scored goals in a consistent manner. Notably, Gere scored 10 goals last season, continuing his double-digit scoring streak. He scored 10 goals in just 16 matches this season. 토토사이트 추천
As it is a difficult record, there are few holders. In addition to Son Heung-min, only six players in EPL history have scored double-digit points for more than eight seasons.
Sadio Mane (Al Nasr), who played for Henri (retired) and Liverpool, scored more than 10 goals in eight consecutive seasons with Son Heung-min. Sergio Aguero (retired) and Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) scored in double digits for nine consecutive seasons and Frank Lampard (retired) for 10 consecutive seasons.
Wayne Rooney (retired), who played for Manchester United while playing for the U.S., holds the most record in this category. He has scored more than 10 goals for 11 consecutive seasons.
With Son Heung-min expected to accompany Tottenham next season, attention is being paid to whether he will increase his record again.
