Tottenham lost 0-2 to Chelsea The ‘UCL dream’ is getting further and further away

Tottenham lost 0-2 in the 2023-24 EPL 26th round match against Chelsea held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 3rd (Korean time).

Tottenham, mired in three consecutive losses, recorded 18 wins, 6 draws, and 10 losses (60 points), failing to close the gap with 4th place Aston Villa (67 points).

With Tottenham having 4 games left and Aston Villa having 3 games left, advancing to 4th place has become a more difficult mission for Tottenham. Tottenham is aiming for 4th place, which is the Maginot line for UCL participation next season.

Captain Son Heung-min played full time as a central striker and left winger, but had to watch the team lose without a score. Son Heung-min, who is recording 15 goals and 9 assists, could have achieved the '10-10 Club' (10 goals, 10 assists) for the third time in his career by adding just one assist, but this too was postponed until later. 스포츠 토토사이트

On this day, Tottenham had a difficult game from the beginning. Five minutes into the first half, Nicholas Jackson had a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper, but Guglielmo Vicario blocked it. The ball rolled into the goal despite hitting the goalkeeper's hand, but Mickey van der Pen managed to clear it with a sliding tackle.

The crisis continued. In the 21st minute of the first half, Michailo Mudrik broke through three defenders and entered the penalty box, and in the 23rd minute, Noni Madueke's curling shot just missed the crossbar. Tottenham, who had been behind all along, eventually gave up the first goal. In the 24th minute of the first half, Trevor Chalobah headed Connor Gallagher's free kick into the corner of the Tottenham goal. Tottenham, who could not even develop a significant attack, created opportunities little by little towards the end of the first half. However, Christian Romero's header in the 39th minute of the first half and Pape Sar's shot in extra time of the first half both slightly missed the goal. In the end, Tottenham ended the first half with a score of 0-1, disappointingly unable to record a single effective shot. Tottenham, who were lethargic throughout the first half, gradually regained their energy in the second half. Tottenham changed the atmosphere by replacing three players, including replacing Richarlison with James Maddison, in the 18th minute of the second half, and moved Son Heung-min, who played as a left attacker, to the center. Afterwards, Tottenham also had an opportunity. In the 22nd minute of the second half, Brennan Johnson received a pass from Son Heung-min and crossed, but it did not reach the feet of the onrushing Emerson Royal. Son Heung-min, who had difficulty securing space for long periods of time, gradually increased the number of times he dribbled with the ball. However, just as Tottenham was about to get into a good mood, Chelsea immediately scored one more goal. This time too, it was a set piece. In the 27th minute of the second half, when Cole Palmer's free kick hit the goalpost, Jackson headed it in again. Son Heung-min tried to clear it, but it wasn't enough. In the 45th minute of the second half of the second half, Rodrigo Bentancur, who received Son Heung-min's pass, fired a converted shot, but this missed, and both Tottenham's goal and Son Heung-min's achievement of the '10-10 club' were canceled. In the end, Tottenham, who had a long way to go, suffered a bitter defeat. 일본야동
