Son Heung-min challenges Liverpool to double-digit EPL goals + Ronaldo record for 7 consecutive years

Tottenham striker Son Heung-min (31), who is on the rise, challenges a meaningful record of double-digit goals for 7 consecutive years.

Tottenham will have an away match in the 34th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Anfield in Liverpool at 0:30 (Korean time) on May 1.

It is an important match for both Son Heung-min and Tottenham.

Son Heung-min, who tied for the top scorer last season with 23 goals, stagnated a bit this season, but is gaining strength in the second half.

Son Heung-min, who scored his 100th EPL goal against Brighton in round 30, also scored against Bournemouth in round 31. Son Heung-min, who was silent in the 1-6 defeat against Newcastle in the 32nd round, started scoring again in the 33rd round against Manchester United on the 28th. League 9 goal.

Son Heung-min, who scored 3 goals in the last 4 games, is now aiming for the ‘double-digit score in 7 consecutive seasons’, which only 9 players in EPL history have reached.

In the league, 10 goals in one season is considered an important indicator to be evaluated as a special goal scorer. Recording those double-digit runs in a row is even more valuable in terms of consistency.

In the EPL, which was founded in 1992, Wayne Rooney has scored 10 or more goals in 11 consecutive seasons, holding the record for the most in this category.

It was followed by Frank Lampard (10th season) and Son Heung-min’s colleague Harry Kane, along with Sergio Aguero, who scored in double digits for 9 consecutive seasons.

In addition to them, top strikers such as Thierry Henry, Sadio Mane (over 8 seasons), Michael Owen, Romelu Lukaku, and Jamie Vardy (over 7 seasons) are putting their names on the record.

Son Heung-min, who currently ranks 33rd in EPL history with 102 goals, can stand shoulder to shoulder with Cristiano Ronaldo (103 goals) if he adds just one more goal. Didier Drogba (104 goals) is also in pursuit, so at the current pace, Son Heung-min has a good chance of catching up with them in total points.

The Liverpool match is very important, not only for personal records, but also for the Tottenham team.

Tottenham, desperate to enter the ‘Big 4’, is currently in 5th place with 16 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses (54 points). Liverpool, who played one game less, are in 7th place with 53 points.

If Liverpool loses, Tottenham, who wants to qualify for the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL), will virtually be eliminated from the competition for fourth place. ㅋㅋㅋ벳

The same goes for Liverpool as well. Liverpool, which once fell to ninth place, recently improved its ranking with three consecutive wins. It won’t be easy, but if you catch Tottenham and win streak in the remaining games, you don’t know what rank you can finish the season.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have won one match between the two teams this season. In the London expedition last November, Liverpool defeated Tottenham 2-1, with Harry Kane recovering one goal thanks to Mohamed Salah’s multiple goals.
