Tottenham will host Chelsea in the 11th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on July 7 at 5:00 a.m. ET. Tottenham will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to 10 games (8 wins, 2 draws).
Son and Pochettino will meet for the first time in a long time. Heung-min joined Spurs from Leverkusen in Germany in the summer of 2015 after being recruited by Pochettino. Heung-min and Pochettino worked together at Spurs for about four years.레모나토토 주소
Pochettino was the first to leave. Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham in November 2019 due to poor results. Pochettino was fired in November 2019 due to poor performances. He then went on to manage Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in France before taking over at Chelsea in England this summer.
A goodbye is a goodbye, and a job is a job. Son will be looking to score against Chelsea. He hasn’t scored against Chelsea in five years. Son has played 17 games against Chelsea in his career. He has scored two goals. He scored his first goal against Chelsea in 2015-16 and his second in 2018-19.
His 2018-19 goal is one that will live long in the memory. It was played at Tottenham’s temporary home, Wembley Stadium, and Chelsea wore a yellow away kit. Son dribbled 60 meters on his own that day and scored with a left-footed shot. He hadn’t scored a goal or assist against Chelsea in five years.
Son will also be looking to help Tottenham regain first place. Spurs are in second place with 26 points from 10 games. First-place Manchester City has 27 points through 11 games. If Spurs win against Chelsea, they can leapfrog City back into first place.
Pochettino is also doing everything he can to keep his former student Son Heung-min at bay. In his press conference ahead of the Tottenham game, Pochettino was asked about Son Heung-min. Pochettino was asked how he plans to stop the South Korean striker, who has been on a scoring spree lately. Pochettino replied, “I’m not a defender. Our defenders will stop him,” Pochettino joked.
“I know Son Heung-min very well. He is one of the best players in the Premier League right now. I hope he won’t be happy in this match.” It’s a message of respect for his former pupil, who is now his nemesis, but also a plea to hold off on scoring on this day.
It’s understandable given Chelsea’s current situation. The Blues are in a three-win, three-draw, four-loss slump in their last 10 games, especially after failing to win their last two league games against Arsenal (2-2 draw) and Brentford (0-2 loss). A win against Tottenham could turn things around.
