Tottenham had a game against Leicester City at Tottenham’s stadium. Heung Min Son was the top scorer the last season, but he was quiet until the last 8 games. He finally scored today!!! but even three goals!!! I knew he can do it! Don’t worry about the top scorer. Salah will score soon as well.
Son was not placed in the first team today with Romero. The reason why is both players will fly too far than other players during the A matches so Conte took care of them. Conte didn’t want them to overwork. He sent in at 59 minutes and was named the MOM today with the hat-trick. He broke the history that he was the first player who scored a hat-trick as a Tottenham player who was sent in as a substitution.
How can Son score the three goals today?
As I mention, Romaro and Son were not placed on the first team. Sanchez and Kulusevski were sent in first instead.
Leicester brought out a 4-1-4-1 formation today. They place Ndidi as a center-back a couple of times but it failed. Therefore, Leicester’s manager placed Ndidi as a defensive midfielder as he was. However, today also failed haha.
The First Half Game:
In the first half, Tottenham scored 3 goals and Leicester 2 goals, but Leicester City was overwhelming. Leicester made 13 shots and 2 big chances in contract, and Tottenham made 6 shots and 1 big chance. Obviously, Leicester played better than Tottenham.
The Second Half Game:
Conte sent Royal in instead of Perisic at 55 minutes and Son & Romero instead of Richarlison & Sanchez. Bissouma was sent in instead of Kulusevski at 70 minutes to make a 3-5-2 formation. I think Conte made the 3-5-2 formation first time in this season and worked so great. After changing the formation, the 2 midfielders, Bentancur and Hojbjerg played better, as a result, they made 1 each assist to Son. Son scored goals at 73 minutes, 84 minutes, and 86 minutes.
I wish Conte use the formation more often. Tottenham’s performance with the formation was much better.
You did a great job SUPER SON!!!
