Son Heung-min (31) made three one-on-one situations with the goalkeeper, but all of them were declared offside and swallowed regret. Acting Tottenham manager Ryan Mason also expressed regret about this.
Tottenham lost 1-2 on the 13th (Korean time) in the 36th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season against Aston Villa held at Villa Park in Birmingham, England. Tottenham, who failed to add points, maintained 6th place with 17 wins, 6 draws and 13 losses (57 points).
Son Heung-min, who started as a left-sided striker, played full-time but failed to raise an attack point. He created three one-on-one opportunities with the goalkeeper and shot three times, but all were ruled offside. The official number of shots was 0 because offside is not counted as a shot.
The first chance for Son Heung-min came in the 24th minute when the score was 0-1. Harry Kane saw Son Heung-min digging into the space behind the defense and stabbed a forward pass. Son Heung-min shot past the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation, but the ball bounced off the right post. The assistant referee then declared Son Heung-min offside.
Son Heung-min continued to aim for the back space of Aston Villa, who raised the line. In the 18th minute of the second half, a situation similar to the first half scoring opportunity came out. Son Heung-min, who received a forward pass from Eve Bisuma, hit a right-footed shot in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper, but it went over the goal. Offside was also declared.
In the second half of extra time, he broke Aston Villa’s line again and shot in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper. This time it shook the net, but another offside was declared.

I recorded offside 4 times.” Harcharisson, Pedro Poro and Cristian Romero received the lowest three points. Ben Davis and Oliver Skip received the same 4 points as Son Heung-min. Kane, who scored a comeback goal with a penalty kick (PK), received the highest 6 points among the starting players.
