Tottenham, who went undefeated in 9 games (7 wins, 2 draws) since the opening game, took the lead with 23 points, beating Manchester City and Arsenal (21 points).
Son Heung-min, who started as a front-line striker on this day, became a major contributor to the victory with one goal and one assist. Son Heung-min, who scored his 7th league goal, became tied for second place in scoring after Erling Haaland (9 goals, Manchester City).
Son Heung-min, who showed light movement from the beginning, beat the opponent’s defense in front of the arc in the 36th minute of the first half and then hit the net with a unique right-foot curling shot. It was a scene where Tottenham’s strong pressure and Son Heung-min’s skills stood out.
Son Heung-min teamed up with Maddison for a great goal in the 9th minute of the second half when the team was leading 1-0. Similar to the first half, Son Heung-min, who took the ball through forward pressure, was not greedy and gave a penetration pass to Madison, who finished it.
The two enjoyed Madison’s ‘dart ceremony’ together.
In an interview with the BBC after the game, Maddison applauded Son Heung-min, who boasted the best chemistry this season.
“We have a great relationship,” he said. “Sonny is a player I have watched for a long time. It is really fun to play with him.”
Maddison continued, “Son Heung-min is a world-class player. I don’t say that a lot,” he said, adding, “We enjoy connecting with each other. We’re putting a lot of effort into training. We’re starting to understand each other.”
Tottenham coach Enze Postecoglou also expressed satisfaction with Son Heung-min and Maddison’s performance after the game.
“They were really great tonight,” said coach Postekoglou in an interview with Sky Sports. “I think the pressure they applied (from the front) was the driving force behind us winning the game.”
He added, “Being able to score two goals was the result of a lot of effort and patience.”
