In the upcoming clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, all eyes are on Tottenham’s captain, Son Heung-min, who is looking to notch his first goal of the season. Scheduled for the second round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season, the match is set to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on August 20th at 1:30 AM Korean time (August 19th, local time).
Tottenham’s opening game saw them draw 2-2 against Brentford, and now they’re keen to secure their first victory of the season. Following the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, Tottenham has undergone a restructuring process with Son Heung-min taking on the mantle of the team’s new captain and a pivotal player.

In the inaugural match, Son Heung-min partnered with new signings James Maddison and Djaniny Coolsepski up front, while Brazilian striker Hirshalison led the attack. However, Son’s performance was relatively subdued, managing only two shots on target during the game.
The clash against Manchester United offers Tottenham the opportunity to rebound from their opening match performance. Manager Andrej Postecoglou is reportedly contemplating moving Son Heung-min to a more central attacking role, particularly given Manchester United’s propensity to maintain a high defensive line.
Renowned for his “Son-top” performances when Harry Kane was sidelined due to injury, Son Heung-min has frequently risen to the occasion. With Manchester United’s high defensive line strategy, Son’s speed could prove to be a potent weapon for counterattacks.
Should Son Heung-min find the back of the net against Manchester United, his EPL goal tally would rise to 104, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo and joining the ranks of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.
