Which club suffered the most from the Tourmalet?

The most intense race as the annual Premier League always creates difficulties and pressure for every team in England.

This year, two names that have difficulty with the Big Six’s schedule are Tottenham and Man City.

The period from early December to mid-January in the Premier League has so far been known to live football viewers as the most fierce “Tourmalet” of European football. The teams in the planet number 1 tournament always have to play with tremendous intensity at this stage. This year is no exception.

Recently, the Daily Mail has made statistics about which team in the Big Six will suffer the heaviest schedule in the upcoming Tourmalet stage. Accordingly, Tottenham and Man City are the two clubs that suffer the most when they not only play many games but also have the least time to rest.

Specifically, the first name facing nightmare in the coming time is Tottenham. The London Rooster will play a total of 12 matches but only have a total of 27 days off, meaning the players are only allowed to rest about 2.25 days between matches. Similarly, Man City also plays with the same number of matches as Spurs, but they only get 1 day off.

In contrast to the two teams above, Liverpool is the most “leisurely” name of the Big Six in the important turn of the season. The Port City team only played a total of 9 matches and had 31 days off, meaning they will get an average of 3.44 days off before each match. In addition to the defending champions, Chelsea also has a breathable schedule when the Blues also play a total of 9 matches and have 30 days off.

Man Utd will play a total of 11 matches in the same time period, but these two clubs have 30 days off, which means the average holiday between matches is 2.72. Similarly Arsenal when the Gunners have the same number of matches as Man Utd and the same number of days off as Liverpool.

Experts predict football that the occurrence of this difference comes from the Carabao Cup arena. Specifically, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal all stopped at this playground, while both Tottenham, Man City and Man Utd were present in the semi-finals.

Son Heung Min is the best finishing striker in Europe

Son Heung Min is Europe’s best finishers, while the two elders Ronaldo and Messi may be ashamed to review their own results.

Son Heung Min is having a wonderful start to the season with Tottenham in the Premier League. The Korean striker has 11 goals and 4 assists in the 2020/21 Premier League after only 14 appearances. Currently, Tottenham’s No. 7 is ranked second in the list of “Top Scorer” with 2 goals less than Liverpool’s leader Mo Salah (13 goals).

One point worth noting is that Mourinho’s Tottenham is not an aggressive team. Therefore, Son Heung Min has only released 25 finishes after 14 matches, equivalent to an average of less than 2 times / game. Therefore, the Korean striker’s 11-goal record is even more valuable.

According to statistics, Son Heung Min is the player capable of converting the number of shots into the best goals in Europe’s top 5 leagues (for players with 9 or more goals) with the ratio 44% (25 shots, 11 goals).

To make it clearer, let’s also look at Mo Salah’s goal conversion rate. The Egyptian striker launched 47 shots, but only scored 13 goals, equivalent to 27.66%, which means that the performance is far behind Son Heung Min.

Or like Jamie Vardy, a player with the same number of goals as Son Heung Min, has a 31.4% rate, the fourth best in Europe’s top five leagues.

Two players with records close to Son Heung Min are Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan). Both have 34% conversion rates of shots into goals, still less than the Korean striker about 10%. Young talent Erling Haaland (Dortmund) is closely behind with a 33% record.

Two contemporary football superstars, Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and Leo Messi (Barcelona), both have quite bad achievements. The Portuguese superstar has 51 shots in just 10 games and has 12 goals, equivalent to a conversion rate of 23.5%.

The Barcelona captain did not even have 9 goals to be considered in this list. Currently, Messi has only 7 goals in La Liga after 85 finishes, which means the conversion rate is only 8.23%. This explains why Barcelona is struggling in La Liga when the team’s brightest star is forgetting to score.

Coming back to Son Heung Min, this ratio shows that the Korean striker is in extremely high scoring form. Not only that, Tottenham’s No. 7 also likes to score goals against big teams. MU, Man City, Liverpool or Arsenal are all victims of Son Heung Min this season. If you continue to promote, the Korean striker will soon turn to a new page of his career.

Chelsea left Kane & Son Heung Min stunned

Chelsea became the first team to stop Tottenham’s scoring streak in the Premier League thanks to the defense of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea and Tottenham were unable to find a goal in the most remarkable big battle of the Premier League round 10. With a squad of both sides in high form combined with the tactical certainty of both manager Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho, both defenses have been impenetrable despite some delicious opportunities. appearance.

This is an unusual match for both sides because each team has played quite coherently since the beginning of the season and scored regularly in the Premier League. Until this match, Chelsea had only one game without scoring (against MU) and the same thing was Tottenham (against Everton), and each team had high-form strikers like Werner, Kane and Son Heung Min. .

But if Tottenham defended with the familiar Jose Mourinho style, Chelsea played for most of this match and still faced a few dangerous Spurs counterattacks. However, they have successfully kept a clean sheet thanks to the certainty of the defenders quartet, the form of the back line continues to be the driving force for Chelsea to be in the championship competition group.

Especially since there was goalkeeper Edouard Mendy in the wooden frame, Chelsea has achieved defensive achievements that they never had when Kepa started. The last Tottenham draw was the 5th match in the Premier League this season, Mendy kept a clean sheet, thereby leading him to lead the league in this category. He has only conceded 3 goals and has kept a clean sheet in 8/11 matches.

With midfielder Thiago Silva – Kurt Zouma defending front, Mendy and the Chelsea defenders ended the scoring streak of Tottenham’s Kane & Son, as Spurs has consistently scored in the Premier League since the game. lost to Everton early in the season. Chelsea has the second least conceding record with 10 goals (Tottenham conceded 9 goals), but up to 9 of them have come in the match Kepa and Willy Caballero started.

Although Chelsea spent more than £ 200 million buying troops this summer and so far almost every rookie has proven worthwhile, no one is leaving a bigger mark than Edouard Mendy, because even if Thiago Silva played, Chelsea still conceded 3 goals against West Brom because of Kepa. Chelsea’s defense is equally sure when they first started being led by Mourinho, and the great success is thanks to the reliable temple guard.

The title era of Son Heung Min (Part 2)

Tottenham does not seem to have reached the strength of a champion, although it is impossible to say anything about the form of the Premier League giants this season as each side has soon revealed cracks in their armor.

Even champions Liverpool have lost Virgil Van Dijk and are leaving defensive concerns, so Tottenham’s hope is still there.

But the biggest chances for Tottenham seem to lie in the cup fronts. They are proving very strong in the Europa League as well as continuing to maintain the League Cup & FA Cup front. Coach Jose Mourinho in his career always attaches great importance to the League Cup arena, so it would not be surprising if he decides to join his students on that front if it is the only chance for Spurs to have the title.

Mourinho is using Son in the best way of his career by not only getting along well with Harry Kane, but also by the powerful support from full-backs like Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier. And he also has a B option for attackers, with Carlos Vinicius, Erik Lamela, Gareth Bale, Steven Bergwijn to keep Son, Kane and Lucas Moura strong without affecting the gameplay.

Everything is ideal for Son Heung Min and the rest is just how long he will continue to maintain his current form. Certainly the opponents have started to pay attention to him and Kane and the attacking style of Spurs, and the difficulty from now on will only increase. But those are the necessary challenges for Son to deserve the acclaim that he is “Asian Ronaldo”.

And if this season, Son helped Tottenham win the Premier League and won himself a personal title as top scorer, Son Heung Min will surely be praised no less than the Portuguese version of Ronaldo.

Son Heung Min scored at Tottenham, given a new contract

Son Heung Min is in brilliant form in the Premier League and is about to receive a big bonus from Tottenham with a new contract, a new salary.

Son Heung Min is playing increasingly sublimated in the Tottenham shirt. The South Korean striker took all the individual titles awarded by the club last season and continued to shine in the first few rounds of the Premier League.

After the first 5 rounds, Son Heung Min and Calvert Lewin (Everton) are “top scorer” in the Premier League with 7 goals. Tottenham’s No. 7 had a poker shot (scored 4 goals) against Southampton, contributed 2 goals in the 6-1 great win over MU and had 1 goal against West Ham in the last round. In addition, Son Heung Min also has 2 assists in the Premier League.

Thus, the Korean striker has an average record of scoring or assisting 1.8 times / match in the Premier League. This is a desirable number for any player playing in the tournament known as the toughest on the planet.

However, the brilliant form of Son Heung Min made the Tottenham leadership worried because the contract of both sides was only valid for 2 years when this season ended. Currently, the South Korean striker is valued at £ 67.5 million (according to Transfermarkt) and could increase further in the near future. However, that also did not prevent the big players’ interest in Tottenham’s No. 7.

Remember, Son Heung Min is not just valuable on the pitch. According to the latest statistics, the number of Tottenham fans in Korea has surpassed MU and possibly Asia in the coming time thanks to the presence of the striker born in 1992. This is a “fertile” land that All the big Europeans wanted to gain in order to increase their reputation and market share.

To avoid being pushed into a passive position in the event of having to sit at the negotiating table, Tottenham president Daniel Levy plans to keep the Korean striker. According to his Telegraph, “Rooster” is negotiating a contract extension with Son Heung Min with a new salary.

Currently the number of years and salary in the draft contract has not been disclosed, but it will almost certainly not be less than £ 150,000 / week. Song Heung Min is enjoying a salary of £ 110,000 / week at Tottenham.

This move by Daniel Levy shows that the England boss of Tottenham is afraid of appearing “second Eriksen”. The Danish midfielder was once one of the club’s most expensive players, but Tottenham had to sell quickly because he did not want to extend when the contract was only 1 year.

However, if he received a new salary of £ 150,000 / week, although very high for an Asian player, Son Heung Min could not be in the top of the highest-paid star in the Premier League. Son’s salary is only in the form of “gentle village” compared to other superstars. In the top 10 highest-paid players in the Premier League, according to The Sun’s statistics, salaries are from £ 220,000 / week or more. The highest is now Aubameyang at £ 350,000 / week with extra fees at Arsenal.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title?

Son was voted into Hamburg’s all-time squad in 2018. At once won many glory (including the European Cup) and in his ranks at least two Golden Ball winners, Son again won a solemn place by helping Hamburg relegate a season with important goals from the bench, and the following season the main kick helped Hamburg finish seventh in the Bundesliga.

Has Son Heung Min been interested in Europe’s biggest football teams? Maybe, many years ago he was rumored to join Bayern Munich to play in the familiar German football environment. However, that rumor went nowhere and Son probably won’t leave Tottenham for many more years.

When Son’s talent was noticed, he was still a winger for two top-tier Bundesliga football teams, and the moment he joined Tottenham ensured that he joined a top club in the world. very difficult. Chairman Daniel Levy is a man that the giants are very fed up with because he always tries to get as much money as possible if he has to sell his stars.

Moreover, Son for many years had to worry about his future military service, so that the big clubs did not dare come close. The Korean star is now 28 years old and Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern would rather invest in younger players, and life in London is quite pleasant so Son will be happy to stay with Spurs despite the opportunity to compete.

But in this season 2020/21, the title chance for Tottenham still exists. Mourinho attaches great importance to the cup game and his forces are able to go far in the knockout tournaments, not to mention he has two more quality reinforcements from Madrid, Gareth Bale & Sergio Reguilon. Bale’s addition is notable because, despite the old age, Bale is still a top player in the world and has won a lot of success.

The Tottenham attacker recently is their ability to attack mass defenders, and now Bale and Reguilon will help solve the problem somewhat. Bale will take the place of Lucas Moura, who is very aggressive in defense but is not as effective at attacking as Bale when operating in tight spaces. Kane – Son – Bale will be a powerful trio and will also be provided with the ball by an increasingly progressive player Giovani Lo Celso.

Winning the Premier League is afraid it is too difficult for Tottenham because they have not reached the level of Liverpool or Man City, but the cup arena is completely possible. Son Heung Min, Harry Kane and Tottenham players may not have to wait long to get the moment to lift the championship trophies.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title? (Part 2)

Perhaps what makes coaches, including Thorsten Fink, Roger Schmidt or Samy Hyypia in Germany, love Son is because of his willingness to respond to the requests of his superiors.

To Son, his father’s word was the law and he was therefore not married yet because he did not want him to be dominated by family life. Being obedient and not allowing ego to dominate action is what makes Son always trusted.

It is impossible not to mention the ideal teammates next to the Korean superstar. Harry Kane with the ability to step back as a wall is an impossible partner for Son, they have together made 24 Premier League goals to become the best attacking pair in the league since the start of the 2015/16 season. Kane actually works well with almost everyone who plays, including Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Nobody can predict the achievements that Son Heung Min has achieved at Tottenham. Son is now one of the best winger in the world and a Golden Ball candidate in 2019. He became the number 1 Asian striker in both Premier League and Champions League history, winning runner-up of the Champions League season 2018/19.

Son has been voted Premier League Player of the Month twice, entered the Premier League fan-voted standout team twice, was awarded the league’s best goal of the month award, and is scored the best goal of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

In the Tottenham shirt, Son is currently ranked 17th in the list of the greatest goalscorer in club history, and is the number 4 striker in the European Cup of Spurs. He won the club’s Player of the Season award for two consecutive seasons, and his goal against Burnley last season was named Tottenham’s best goal of the decade.

Since Tottenham began awarding the Player of the Season award in 1987, Robbie Keane has won the most number of awards on three occasions. Son Heung Min with 2 consecutive seasons receiving the award is only 1 time behind Keane, while many times more than Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann or Chris Waddle. Those legends have all been nominated for Tottenham’s House of Fame, so Son is almost certain to come one day to be honored.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title? (Part 1)

Son Heung Min is on his way to becoming a monument at Tottenham. Will the poker hit against Southampton be the start of a journey for him to win a title for the first time for Spurs?

Son Heung Min is not a less talented player, but he can hardly reach the level of Mohamed Salah or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. That is why Son compensates with hard work, and most importantly, simplicity in action.

The main factor that helps Son kick anywhere is because he always practices to develop his basic skills as a whole. He practiced kicking & passing well with both feet, tried to speed up and chose the position without the ball, practiced to control a narrow space and participated in the dispute. Focusing on the basics of the training ground, Son also brings a simple mindset to the game.

Perhaps among the current Premier League strikers, Son is the most direct and simplest player. He passed simply and moved wide around the opponent’s penalty area waiting for his chance to finish without ever extending the ball. In a quick counter-attack, Son’s speed is truly a nightmare for any center-back no matter how fast.

And he also brings a necessary energy source in the defensive front. Son, with Kane since taking up the position at Tottenham, have often made more fouls than defenders, because Spurs’ defense starts from the striker. Son is particularly good at cutting passes, he is the one who cuts the most passes among Tottenham strikers in the Premier League season 2019/20.

Son is fortunate again to come to a club like Tottenham, coach Mauricio Pochettino and his pressing style makes Son more valuable and now Jose Mourinho is even more important to him because of his fast and not colorful style. . Pochettino held Son to stay when he was about to leave for Germany after the bad first season of 2015/16, and Mourinho since taking the lead has not once criticized Son.
