Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who rescued his team from the brink in the previous round against Newcastle, will be looking for multiple attacking points for the second consecutive game.
Tottenham travel to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground in Nottingham, England, for the 17th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL), kicking off at 5 p.m. ET.랭크카지노
After opening the season with an unbeaten run of eight wins and two draws in their opening 10 games, Spurs went on a five-match winless streak (one draw and four losses) that saw them drop to fifth in the standings before finally breaking the winless streak with a home win over Newcastle on Nov. 11.
Captain Son Heung-min led the way with a one-goal, two-assist performance against Newcastle, including his 10th goal of the regular season by converting his own penalty kick just before the end of the game. This marks Son’s eighth consecutive season of double-digit goals in the EPL.
In top form, Heung-min will now lace up his boots once again to keep his team’s winning streak alive, as well as their hopes of qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) and eventually winning the league title.
The win over Newcastle keeps Spurs in fifth place in the league (30 points), just three points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City (33 points).
A win over Nottingham would equalize their points tally with Manchester City and close the gap on leaders Liverpool (37 points) to four, putting them back in contention for the title.
Even though it’s an away game, the fact that Nottingham are 16th in the league and in the midst of a winless streak (D1, L5) in their last six games also helps Tottenham’s chances.
Son has fond memories of scoring against Nottingham back in March. That goal gave Son his 99th career EPL goal.
With multi-attack points in Round 9 against Fulham (1 goal, 1 assist), Round 14 against Man City (1 goal, 1 assist), and Round 16 against Newcastle (1 goal, 2 assists), Heung-min will be looking for his fourth multi-attack point game of the season and second in a row.
