(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Dong-chan Kim = Son Heung-min (29) challenges the season 10 goal hunting from the beginning of the new year.

Heung-Min Son’s team, Tottenham Hotspur, will play an away match against Watford in the English Premier League in 2021-2022, which will be held at Vicarage Road, Watford, England, on the 1st at 12:00 pm Korean time.

Tottenham Hotspur have been doing well with 4 wins and 2 draws in 6 regular league matches since Antonio Conte took over as manager in November.

The ranking, which once went down to 11th, moved up to 5th, but is now 7th with 30 points (9 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses).

It is one point away from fifth-placed West Ham United, but since Tottenham have played two fewer games, they can pursue or even overtake as much as they want.

Heung-Min Son, starting against Brentford earlier this month, continued his upward trend by scoring goals in four consecutive Premier League matches before Norwich City, Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

In the previous match against Southampton on the 29th, he did not score, but induced a penalty kick, effectively leading to a 1-1 draw.

Heung-Min Son scored eight goals in league matches this season, and added one goal in the UEFA Europa Conference League, scoring a total of nine goals.

If you score a goal against Watford, which is held on New Year’s Day on the local date, it will fill the double-digit score for the season.

Son Heung-min scored 10 or more goals for 5 consecutive seasons from the 2016-2017 season to last season, and if he exceeds 10 goals this season, he will continue his double-digit goal streak for 6 consecutive seasons.

The opposing team, Watford, is a relatively weak team with 4 wins, 1 draws and 12 losses, and is ranked 17th out of 20 clubs, so there is a high possibility of Son Heung-min’s scoring operation.

Heung-Min Son has a pleasant memory of scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Watford in August this year.

At that time, Son Heung-min made 200 appearances in the Premier League and scored a free-kick, leading the team to three consecutive opening victories.

Tottenham Hotspur is on a strong march, starting with a league match against Liverpool on the 20th, a Carabao Cup match against West Ham on the 23rd, Crystal Palace on the 27th and Southampton on the 29th, and a league match against Southampton on the 29th.

After that, the tight schedule will continue for the time being.

On January 6th and 13th, they played the first and second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Chelsea, and on the 9th, they met the 3rd division team, Morecamby.

After the match against Watford on January 2 next year, league matches await with strong teams such as Arsenal on the 17th and Chelsea on the 24th.
