Looking to lead Tottenham to a seventh-place finish, ’21-22 PL top scorer’ Son Heung-min will look to find the back of the net for the second consecutive season.
He has 14 goals and five assists this season, and a point in this match would give him his 20th. He has three goals and one assist in four games against Leeds, so it will be interesting to see if he can find the net in the final game of the season. In order to qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference, eighth-placed Spurs will need to win this game and hope that seventh-placed Aston Villa slip up.
Son had a rough start to the season with a goal-scoring slump and an orbital fracture, but he showed his class in the second half of the season, reaching milestones such as ‘100th PL goal’ and ‘seventh consecutive PL double-digit scoring season’. With just one game remaining in an eventful 22-23 campaign, Son will be looking for his 20th attacking point of the season. After averaging one attacking point per game against Leeds, can Son Heung-min rattle the opposition’s net in the final game to complete the double?
With 57 points, Spurs are in eighth place, one point behind seventh-place Aston Villa (58 points). Aston Villa, who will play their final game at home, will face Brighton, who have clinched sixth place. If Aston Villa wins, Tottenham will fail to qualify for the Conference League regardless of the result against Leeds. If Aston Villa draws and Tottenham wins, the two teams will swap positions. If Aston Villa loses and Tottenham draws, Spurs can still finish seventh, but if ninth-place Brentford (56 points) beats City, it will be Brentford who qualifies for the Conference League 스포츠토토.
Leeds, in 19th place with 31 points, are challenging for PL survival. They need to catch 17th-place Everton (33 points) to stay up. They have the same number of points as 18th-place Leicester (31), but are nine points behind on goal difference. At this point, the best case scenario for Leeds is that both Everton and Leicester lose their final games and they take three points from Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Hwang Hee-chan, who scored in the last game, will be looking to score for the second game in a row against Arsenal. Having scored the opening goal against the Gunners last season, can Hwang get on the scoresheet this time around?
All 22-23 PL Final Round matches featuring the ‘PL Duo’ Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan will kick off simultaneously at 12:30am on Monday, September 29.
