The value of Son Heung-min (Tottenham), the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL), is not limited to goals. Son Heung-min is actively applying pressure at the front line and is showing off the typical striker required in modern soccer.

According to the Football Institute (CIES), the International Sports Research Center under the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) on the 20th (Korean time), Son Heung-min attempted an average of 16.17 pressures per 90 minutes in the five major European leagues (EPL, Spain's Primera Liga, Germany's Bundesliga, and Italy). Serie A, French League 1) was confirmed as the player who attempted the most pressure among the frontline strikers.

Even compared to 2nd place Maximilian Beyer (Hoffenheim? 13.02 times) and 3rd place Cameron Archer (Sheffield? 12.64 times), his numbers are overwhelming.

Son Heung-min is playing the role of a front-line striker under the guidance of coach Anger Postekoglou this season. He has recently returned to the left-back position he is most accustomed to, but was moved to the front line as Richarlison's struggles deepened at the start of the season.

Son Heung-min played a big role at the front line. Not only does he lead the team's attack, but he also contributes greatly to the defense with active forward pressure.

Pressure from a high position is necessary to carry out the aggressive tactics pursued by Coach Postekoglou, but Son Heung-min continued to make movements that threatened the opposing goalkeeper and final defenders. Thanks to Son Heung-min, Tottenham is actively advancing the line and consistently using the attacking soccer they have prepared.

At the beginning of the season, the British public broadcaster BBC also paid attention to Son Heung-min's 'off the ball'. The media looked back at the Burnley match in which Son Heung-min scored a hat-trick and highlighted the 49 pressures Son Heung-min applied to the opponent.

Son Heung-min is applying pressure while also faithfully scoring the goals that are most needed for an attacker.

Son Heung-min has recorded 10 goals and 4 assists in 17 games this season, proving his ability as a top striker in the league.

Among the top 10 strikers in the five major leagues released by CIES, Son Heung-min is the only one scoring in double digits. The player who has scored the most goals after Son Heung-min is Newcastle's Alexander Isaac (7 goals). Isaac ranks 8th in this category, applying an average of 11.31 pressures per 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, Son Heung-min, who was silent in the match against Nottingham on the 16th, will challenge for his 11th league goal in the 18th round of the EPL against Everton on the 24th. 19가이드03
