Son Heung-min’s role is important. Son Heung-min, who was sluggish at the beginning of the season, came back to life this year. As he gradually improved his condition, goals that hadn’t been scored are pouring in. On the 8th, he scored his 100th EPL goal against Brighton & Hove Albion, and scored another goal against Bournemouth shortly after. He’s playing the role of ‘Ace’ well.
Son Heung-min, who scored his 8th goal, is aiming for a double-digit score for 7 consecutive seasons. It is not an impossible mission with seven games left, including the Newcastle match. In particular, his toe has been sharp recently, so the possibility of writing a great record is considerable.
The goal record for seven consecutive seasons is a feat only Harry Kane has achieved at Tottenham. Kane has scored 10 or more goals in the league for 9 consecutive seasons. He has already scored 23 goals this season. Son Heung-min, who joined in August 2015 and scored double-digit points every time except for his first season, scored 10 or more goals for 6 consecutive seasons. If he scores only 2 more goals this season, he can surpass Robbie Keane (6 seasons) and write a great record.
His double-digit scoring record represents ‘consistency’. It is one of the records that are highly regarded because they have to maintain top-level skills for a long time. Legends like Thierry Henry (8 seasons), Sergio Aguero (9 seasons), and Frank Lampard (10 seasons) shone in this category. The record for longest double-digit score in the EPL is held by Wayne Rooney (11 seasons).
It is noteworthy whether Son Heung-min, who boasts of a recent sense of water, will write a record against Newcastle. Son Heung-min scored 4 goals and 2 assists in 13 confrontations with Newcastle. Locals expect him to start as Tottenham’s left striker without fail.
