There is a possibility that Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) will be excluded from the starting lineup for two consecutive games.
On the afternoon of the 26th (Korean time) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, Tottenham and Chelsea will face each other through round 25 of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL). Tottenham, who had 3 points in the previous game, was in 4th place with 42 points안전놀이터 (13 wins, 3 draws, 8 losses). Chelsea (31 points, 8 wins, 7 draws, 8 losses) are still in the mid-table at 10th place.
Head coach Christian Stellini attended the pre-press conference in place of coach Antonio Conte, who is resting due to the aftermath of surgery. Head Coach Stellini started the interview in earnest by answering, “No special news.
One of the biggest concerns was whether or not Son Heung-min was selected. Son Heung-min started the match against West Ham United from the bench. He came on as a substitute in the 23rd minute of the second half in place of His-Charlesson, who played as a starter, and scored an additional goal in the 4th minute. Unlike last season, when he won the Golden Boot (top scorer), Son Heung-min, who had poor scoring ability, tasted a goal after a long time. Son Heung-min had scored a hat-trick as a substitute after being pushed to the bench when he hardly scored a goal at the beginning of the season.
When asked who would be selected for the Chelsea match, Stellini said, “The selection for the West Ham match was a decision based on the players’ physical condition. We need time to recover to prepare for the next match. Every match will be hard because we have to play 4 matches in the next 10 days. Every player needs to be 100%. If a player who is 100% in one position and 70% If there is a player who is 100%, I will choose a player who is 100%.” It meant that he would select a player who was in better condition on the day of the match between Son Heung-min and Hischarlisson.
Conte is unlikely to be able to direct the match against Chelsea. Regarding the timing of Conte’s return, head coach Stellini said, “I don’t know yet, but I think I can come back soon.”
