[GOAL 리뷰] ‘Son Heung-Min Silence’ Tottenham collapsed in helpless performance… Lost 0-2 to Manchester United

[골닷컴] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = English professional football Tottenham Hotspur suffered a devastating defeat amid a lethargic performance. At the same time, they have yet to win against the big 6 teams they have met this season. Heung-Min Son started the game, but he could not raise the attacking points because he did not have a chance to do so.

Tottenham Hotspur defeated Manchester United 0-2 in the 12th round of the Premier League for the 2022/23 season held at Old Trafford, Manchester, England on the 20th at 4:15 am (Korean time).

Tottenham’s winning streak was put to a halt today. Although the ranking remained at 3rd place (7 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses, 23 points), it did not widen the gap with 4th place Chelsea (20 points). Tottenham Hotspur challenged the atmosphere by calling Newcastle United home in the next round.

After losing the ‘North London Derby’, Tottenham went undefeated in four official matches, especially in the Premier League, and quickly settled the mood by winning two consecutive victories. In the midst of this, the plan was to continue the flow by winning an important match against Manchester United, who are closely chasing the top spots.

Coach Antonio Conte said: “Man United are a strong team. Old Trafford is a difficult place for the away team. It will be a difficult match.” I will do my best to get good results.”

Coach Conte brought out the 3-5-2 formation instead of the previously announced 3-4-3 formation. Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son came in as two tops, while Rodrigo Bentancour, Matt Doherty, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bisuma and Pierre-Emil Hoyvier formed the midfield. Ben Davis, Eric Dyer and Christian Romero formed the back three.

Contrary to expectations, Tottenham were overwhelmed from the outset, giving Manchester United several menacing opportunities. In the first half alone, the shooting number was pushed back by 5-19, and the on-target number was lagged 1-5. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris managed to avert the crisis thanks to a series of super saves. Tottenham Hotspur ended the first half 0-0.

Maybe it was because we didn’t get the atmosphere right at halftime. Tottenham conceded a goal at the start of the second half. In the second minute, Jaden Sancho conceded a pass, and Fred’s shot from the arc circle hit Davis in the leg and deflected it, leading to the goal.

After that, Tottenham couldn’t easily bring the flow and struggled to create offensive opportunities. In the end, he gave up again and collapsed. In the 24th minute of the second half, after a fight for the ball in the arc circle, Fred’s kick was caught in the defensive wall, but Bruno Fernandes broke the goal net for the second ball non-stop.

Conte made several changes to change the mood later. In the 37th minute of the second half, Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon and Lucas Moura were put in, excluding Dier, Doherty and Bisuma. However, the game had already turned completely down, and in the end Tottenham lost 0-2.
