When Son Heung-min went to the bench instead of the ground,
I couldn’t hide my regret.
< Tottenham 2:0 Chelsea｜Premier League >
Son Heung-Min, who started off the bench for two consecutive matches, was substituted in the 34th minute of the second half with a 1-0 lead.
Three minutes after entering, Son Heung-min’s sharp corner kick hit Eric Dier in the head, and Kane calmly finished the goal.
Following the last game in which he directly shook the net after 5 minutes of substitution, he made a decisive contribution to the team’s victory in less than 5 minutes after stepping on the ground.
Last year, he scored a hat-trick against Leicester City, who was initially excluded from the selection.
It was even evaluated that the goal conversion rate was 40 times higher in the game as a substitute.
However, there are observations that the bench appearance will not be long as Richarlison, who competes with Son Heung-min for the starting lineup, has not shown a significant performance.

Son Heung-min, who has two goals left until his personal career Premier League 100th goal, will go on a goal hunt against Sheffield on the 2nd of next month.
