Son Heung-min, Tottenham’s talisman, has expressed dissatisfaction with his team’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham, placing blame on the attacking players. The South Korean international, who has assumed a pivotal role for Spurs, deemed the loss “unacceptable” and emphasized the need for his colleagues to take responsibility.
Tottenham, under Coach Ange Postecoglou, started the game strongly but faced a second-half comeback, marking their fifth consecutive defeat of the season. Despite numerous chances, including a deflected cross by Giovani Lo Celso hitting the post and a missed header by Richarlison, Tottenham failed to secure a victory.
Son Heung-min highlighted the lack of cutting edge in their attack, noting that despite having 23 shots, Tottenham couldn’t convert them into goals. The team’s struggles are evident in their season statistics, having conceded more points from winning positions (16) than any other Premier League team.
Previously leading the table by five points, Spurs now find themselves in fifth place due to their recent losing streak. In an interview with Amazon Prime after the game, Son Heung-min emphasized the players’ responsibility, particularly the attacking players, to capitalize on opportunities and secure positive results.
