Son Heung-min (Tottenham) is also a hot topic in the Chelsea game.
Tottenham meets Chelsea in the worst slump. Tottenham will play round 25 of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season with Chelsea at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 10:30 pm (hereinafter Korean time)메이저사이트 on the 26th.
Tottenham beat West Ham 2-0 on the 20th and re-entered the ‘Big 4’. On the other hand, Chelsea are unbeaten in 4 matches in a row (3 draws and 1 loss) in the EPL. On the 19th, they lost 0-1 to Southampton at home. The current league standings are 10th.
But Chelsea is Chelsea. Coach Graham Porter is aiming for a turnaround by winning the ‘London Derby’.
Head coach Christian Stellini held a press conference against Chelsea on the 24th. Antonio Conte, who has undergone surgery for cholecystitis, is still recovering in Italy. He also vacates the bench against Chelsea. Coach Stellini takes his place.
Son Heung-min was excluded from the selection against West Ham. But the value of the name remained. He was substituted in the 23rd minute of the second half and scored a key goal in the 4th minute. It was the 5th goal in the league and the 98th goal in EPL history.
Coach Stellini said, “It’s the same squad as the West Ham match. There is no news of any special injuries.” The match against Chelsea is also of great interest as to which of the two, Richarlison and Son Heung-min, will be selected as the starter.
Coach Stellini said: “The decision was made considering the condition of the players. Against West Ham, Richarlison recovered 100%, and Son Heung-min had problems for a while. Players with problems need time to recover to prepare for the next one.” “We now have to play 4 games in 10 days. Every game will be difficult. If one player is 100% and the other is 70%, you have to choose a 100% player,” he emphasized.
Regarding Conte, he said, “I can’t be with Chelsea, but I can feel his energy, so my return is very close.” “He can watch training. He calls three or four times during the day and even at night. Conte is involved in every situation and decision.”
