Accordingly, the Korean striker has reached the 51st goal in the Premier League, bringing him to 5th place in the list of Tottenham’s top scorers in the Premier League, equal to Christian Eriksen. The four people standing higher than Son are all famous Spurs strikers, like Kane (136 goals), Sheringham (97), Defoe (91) and Keane (91).

51 Premier League goals also make Son the first Asian player in Premier League history to cross the 50-goal mark, something that the Asians before him would never have dared to dream of. The once illustrious Park Ji-sung in the MU shirt also only scored 19 goals after 7 seasons of battle in the Premier League.
In all competitions this season, Son Heung-min has scored for Tottenham 16 goals and added 9 assists. Imprinting his shoes on 25 goals in just 32 games this season is a very impressive achievement for Son, demonstrating his maturity and importance to Spurs. Therefore, losing him to injury for the match against Leipzig is clearly a big loss for Tottenham.
In addition to Son Heung-min, the English team also lost owner Harry Kane for the same reason. The last 9 matches without Kane’s service in the Champions League, Tottenham only won 1 match, the statistics partly show how important the English striker is.
While Tottenham lost two pillars in attack, Leipzig lost the cornerstone in defense, defender Dayot Upamecano because of a suspension. In the last 23 matches of Leipzig, Dayot Upamecano was named in the starting line-up, contributing a lot to the success of the German team, in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
Losing Dayot Upamecano, plus two other defenders, Ibrahima Konaté and Willi Orban (both injured), will make Leipzig more vulnerable to Tottenham’s attacks. And that will be the problem that requires coach Julian Nagelsmann to find a solution.
Expected lineup for Tottenham vs Leipzig
+ Tottenhasquare meter: Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies; Lo Celso, Winks; Lamela, Alli, Bergwijn; Moura.
+ Leipzig: Gulacsi; Mukiele, Klostermann, Halstenberg; Sabitzer, Haidara, Laimer, Angelino; Nkunku; Werner, Poulsen.
