Will Son Heung-min (29, Tottenham), who took a ‘forced break’ due to the cancellation of the match due to heavy snow, lead the uptrend of Tottenham in a difficult December?

Heung-Min Son’s team Tottenham will play the 2021-2022 English Premier League (EPL) round 14 home match against Brentford at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 4:30 am (Korean time) on the 3rd.

As the 13th round away match against Burnley, scheduled for the 28th of last month, was postponed due to heavy snow, Tottenham will play their first league match against Leeds United in about two weeks after the 12th round.

Although the flow was interrupted slightly by the cancellation of the match, Tottenham, who won 2-1 against Leeds, are challenging Brentford for a winning streak.

On the 26th of last month, Mura (Slovenia) and the UEFA Europa Conference League group G Group 5 away suffered a 1-2 shock loss in the away game, so they are aiming for a rebound in the league.

After the match against Brentford, the 15th round is scheduled with Norwich City at 11 pm on the 5th.

Tottenham, which played 1 or 2 fewer games than other teams, is currently in 9th place in the EPL (19 points, 6 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses).

To set the stage for a rebound, they need to get 6 points in a series of matches against these two teams.

Brentford and Norwich City, who were promoted to the Premier League this season, are 11th (16 points) and 19th (10 points), respectively, below Tottenham.

December is tough for Tottenham.

With the postponed match against Burnley still unconfirmed, Tottenham will have to play a total of nine games this month, including seven regular league matches, the Europa Conference League group stage, and the League Cup (Carabao Cup) quarter-finals.

It is important to start from the beginning if you want to handle the tight schedule without getting tired.

Tottenham Hotspur expects Son Heung-min, the top scorer in the regular league team, to come back to life.

Son Heung-min, who has scored 4 goals and 1 assist in the EPL this season (5 goals and 2 assists in the official game), has been silent for the fourth time in the league after scoring a goal against Newcastle United on October 18th.

He remembers scoring goals against Brentford and Norwich City.

Son Heung-min scored his 150th professional goal in the League Cup semi-final against Brentford in January this year, leading Tottenham to a 2-0 victory with an additional goal in the second half.

He met Norwich City three times in the EPL and scored one goal, and he led Tottenham to a 2-1 victory with a header in January 2020, the last match before the relegation of Norwich.

Tottenham have only scored 11 goals in 12 regular league games this season.

In terms of goals only, they are suffering from a goal drought to such an extent that they rank second in the lowest scorer after Norwich City (8 goals) among the 20 teams in the league.

While Son’s best friend Harry Kane has only scored one goal and one assist in the league, Tottenham need a ‘fixer’.

After the appointment of Antonio Conte as manager on the 2nd of last month, Tottenham have recorded 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in 4 official matches.
