Son Heung-min showed a particularly strong aspect to Leicester City and was called the ‘fox hunter’.
He opened the Leicester City goal 10 times, including a hat-trick in the 13th minute as a substitute in September last year.
Son Heung-min, however, played full-time that day, but could not see a hunter-like appearance. He didn’t even have attack points.
Leicester City’s pressing play stood out.
All Tottenham players, including Son Heung-min and Kane, suffered as if they were chained.
Leicester showed remarkable changes in all aspects such as organization, speed, and tactics. It was not the ‘easy’ Leicester of the past.
Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer last season with 23 league goals, but has been stagnating this season, is staying at 4 league goals this season.
There are still 3 goals left to his 100th goal in the Premier League in his personal career.
