The focus is on whether Son Heung-min, whose position is slipping after playing as a substitute in two consecutive games, will regain his starting position through the English FA Cup.
Son Heung-min will play the 2022-2023 season FA Cup Round of 16 against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane Stadium on the 2nd of next month (Korea time).
The interest is whether Son Heung-min will start scoring again after the round of 32. Son Heung-min started against Preston in the round of 32 on the 28th of last month and scored two goals with just his left foot from leading to a 3-0 victory.
Son Heung-min needs to regain his starting position in the round of 16 of the FA Cup. Son Heung-min contributed directly or indirectly to the score despite appearing as a substitute in the previous two games, but not being able to start is not pleasant news.
Son Heung-min was substituted in the second half of the league game against West Ham on the 20th and scored a goal in 4 minutes. On the 26th, Son Heung-min came on as a substitute against Chelsea and kicked a corner which led to Harry Kane’s extra goal.
Son Heung-min, who has played in consecutive substitutes, still feels selfish, but he cannot hide his firm expression. Son Heung-min needs a bounce back through the FA Cup.
The fact that Tottenham desperately needs the championship cup raises the possibility of selecting Son Heung-min for the English FA Cup. Tottenham have no winning experience since winning the League Cup in the 2007-2008 season. The FA Cup was the last in the 1990-1991 season.
Contrary to Son Heung-min’s wishes, we cannot rule out the possibility that head coach Stellini will put Son Heung-min on the bench more. Because the rest of the game schedule is tight. It is very likely that Stellini will try to continue the current trend until Conte returns.
After the FA Cup round of 16 with Sheffield, Tottenham will play the second leg of the round of 16 against AC Milan on the 9th, following a league game against Wolverhampton on the 5th. The game against AC Milan is a game that requires an all-out war as it is directly related to Tottenham’s performance this year. Because of this, coach Stellini can keep Son Heung-min’s stamina until the match against AC Milan.
It is a situation where attention will be paid to whether Son Heung-min will start in the upcoming important games.
