Tottenham Hotspur defeated Manchester United 2-0 in the second round of the 2023-2024 Premier League season at 1:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. It was Tottenham’s first win of the season after a 2-2 draw with Brentford in the season opener.

In the first half, Spurs were evenly matched with United. Both teams were sharply aiming for each other’s goal with quick, long passes. But neither team scored, and the score remained 0-0 at halftime.

The balance between the two teams fell apart in the second half. Pape Sarr opened the scoring four minutes into the second half, followed by an own goal from Lissandro Martinez in the 38th minute to secure a 2-0 win for Spurs. 토토사이트

Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who started the game wearing the captain’s armband, played the full game. With 55 total touches, Son completed 79% (30-of-38) of his passes, creating four chances, one shot, and three successful dribbles to lead Tottenham’s attack. He was also active on defense, making one tackle, two clears, one interception, and five recoveries.

Speaking to Football London after the game, Son said, “It’s too early to say, but we want to play attacking football, possessing the ball and creating chances, and I think the fans have seen that in our two games. It’s a lot of fun to play like this, but I think the fans enjoyed it more,” he said, adding that it was a fun game for both players and spectators.

He added: “It was 100 percent fun for the players. All coaches are different. I always respect them. If they ask me to play a certain role, I will try to fulfill it.”

Heung-min added: “I’m very happy. As a striker, the more you press in the high areas, the shorter the distance to score,” he added.
