Although the scoring streak of Son Heung-min ended when Tottenham Hotspur faced Southampton last Tuesday, he contributed to securing a draw differently. He drew a penalty late in the first half, allowing Harry Kane to score via penalty kick.
As a result, the team improved its undefeated streak to seven games with three draws and four wins. Also, Hotspur is in sixth place with 30 points. It is one point behind West Ham United. However, Tottenham still has two games to play.
According to online sports betting reports, Son matched his career-high of scoring at least a goal in four straight games Sunday against Crystal Palace. However, he failed to score two days later as the team looked tired as they stepped on the pitch.
Scoring Streak of Son Heung-min
James Ward-Prowse scored in the 25th minute to give Southampton the lead. However, the momentum switched to Tottenham in the 39th minute. In the middle of it is Son Heung-min. According to betting odds experts, Harry Winks passed the ball to Son. Yet, Mohammed Salisu caught up with the Hotspur star and pushed him down while inside the penalty area. As a result, Salisu got his second yellow card for the game.
Kane scored the penalty kick to even the score at one apiece. However, although Tottenham dominated the second half of the game, they couldn’t score the go-ahead goal. According to online gambling South Korea sources, Tottenham had an 11-2 advantage in shots on goal, but they failed to get results.
Son was the King of the Match despite not scoring in the game. It was his second straight game to earn the award. Also, it was his eighth for the year. He is only one King of the Match award behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
