Son Heung-min, who played for 88 minutes and was silent, received mixed reviews “There was very little activity.”

Tottenham loses 1-2 to West Ham

Son Heung-min received harsh criticism from the local media while Tottenham of the English professional soccer Premier League (EPL) lost five consecutive games.

Tottenham failed to protect Christian Romero's first goal and lost 1-2 in the 15th round of the 2023-2024 EPL against West Ham held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 5:15 am (Korean time) on the 8th.

It's a 5-game winless streak. Tottenham, who had been undefeated with 8 wins and 2 draws in the opening 10 games, lost the ability to win with 1 draw and 4 losses in the next 5 games.

The disappointment is even greater because the first goal was scored in all five games in which the team did not achieve victory. Tottenham, who was leading at the beginning of the season, is now in 5th place with 8 wins, 3 draws, and 4 losses (27 points).

Son Heung-min started as a starter and played 88 minutes until the 43rd minute of the second half, but failed to find attack points. In the 17th minute of the first half, he attempted to shoot once from the front of the penalty box, but it went directly in front of the goalkeeper.

He had one shot, two key passes, and a 79% pass success rate.

Local ‘Football London’ gave Son Heung-min the lowest rating of 4 points and said, “There was little activity. “He appeared to be limping a bit when he was substituted in the second half.”

In contrast, the evaluations of statistical companies were not bad. His performance wasn't the best, but it was decent.

‘’ gave Son Heung-min 7.0 points. It was the third on the team, following Romero (7.9 points) and Foro (7.7 points), who scored the first goal.

‘Sofa Score’ gave it 7.8 points. It was the fourth highest after Romero, Foro (8.4 points), and Giovanni Lo Celso (7.9 points). ‘Foot Mob’ gave 7.3 points.

Tottenham will play the 16th round of the league against Newcastle United on the 11th.
