Tottenham Hotspur plays the 2021/2022 English Premier League (EPL) round 22 home match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 17th at 1:30 am (Korean time).
Both teams are in fifth and sixth place by two points. If Tottenham win this match, they can move to fifth place and push Arsenal at the same time. Since it is a North London rivalry, we cannot make any further concessions.
Tottenham Hotspur are also in trouble. It is Son Heung-min’s vacancy. Son Heung-min is likely to return in February due to a muscle injury. In particular, he has performed well recently against Arsenal. In the last 5 matches in the league, he was strong with 3 goals and 3 assists. He also scored in his first match of the season.
Paul Merson, a British soccer expert, told ‘Sky Sports’, “Heung-Min Son’s vacancy is huge. This is why Arsenal are thinking of winning the North London derby. Son Heung-min is Arsenal’s recent Achilles heel.”
The North London derby is likely to be postponed. Arsenal has requested a postponement from the EPL Secretariat due to the massive absence of the squad. If the postponement is confirmed, the schedule will be confirmed after February when Son Heung-min’s comeback is made. Arsenal killer Son Heung-min could also step out.
