On the 20th (Korea time), the Premier League released the weekly top 11 selected by Alan Shearer via the official Instagram. Son Heung-min was named in the striker section. Along with Son Heung-min, Jejus and Grealish were included.
Heung-Min Son scored a hat-trick in the second half of the home match against Leicester in the ‘2022/23 Premier League 8th Round’ held at the ‘Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’ two days ago leading the team to a 6-2 victory. .
Heung-Min Son started on the bench and was replaced by Perisic in the 14th minute of the second half with the team leading 3-2. From then on, Son Heung-min’s one-man show began. In the 28th minute of the second half, he broke the net with a great right foot kick. In the 39th minute of the second half, he scored with a left foot kick. It was a twisting kick like his own patent.
He completed a hat-trick on 41 minutes of the second half. He kicked hard with his right foot in front of the goalkeeper. He was declared offside, but the VAR read that he was offside. Son Heung-min, who had previously struggled not to score, quickly put his worries to rest.
After the game, Son Heung-min said, “The end of the season was not good. Own goal, two offside goals, crossbar… Unlucky. But I thought the goal would come one day, and I wasn’t worried. There are always great fans, colleagues and coaches.”
Currently, Son Heung-min has entered Korea for two consecutive A matches against Costa Rica and Cameroon. The football team also decided to keep Son Heung-min quiet, but he managed to bounce back with a hat-trick, and went into the A game with a lighter mind.
Heung-Min Son, De Bruyne, Palinha, Zaka, Iwobi, Dias, Saliba, Tarkowski and Netu were also named in the Premier League’s Weekly Best 11. The management part was Arsenal manager Arteta. Among the Tottenham players, Son Heung-min was the only player to be included in the Top 11 list.
