Ben Davies has been highly praised for his fantastic defense. 스포츠토토 Tottenham Hotspur recorded a landslide 4-1 victory over Newcastle United in the 16th round of the 2023-24 season Premier League held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, the U.K., at 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Tottenham successfully escaped its fifth consecutive defeat in the league.
Tottenham faced a serious upturn in the early days of this season. It fell into a slump starting from the match against Chelsea. Due to unfavorable factors in the match against Chelsea, they suffered a 1-4 defeat and recorded no single win against the Wolverhampton Wanderers, Aston Villa, Manchester City, and West Ham United. Their rankings fell from first to fifth, and their gap with their chasing teams was not significant.
He sought a rebound through the game against Newcastle. He had ample possibility. Newcastle also had not been in a good mood recently. Key players including Nick Pope, Jacob Murphy, Dan Burn, Callum Wilson, Sean Longstaff, Sven Boatman, Joe Willock, and Harvey Barnes were all injured. Due to the inability to operate the rotation system, players felt more pressure and suffered a humiliating 0-3 defeat at the previous game against Everton.
He displayed a perfect performance at home. Based on Huscoord, a soccer statistics outlet, Tottenham constantly pressured Newcastle with 57 percent of possession and 23 shots in 90 minutes. With a perfect performance, Tottenham scored a whopping four goals and won 4-1.
Son Heung-min was the hero of the match. Playing as a winger in the match, he spearheaded the team’s attack by posting two assists in the first half alone. In the second half, he scored his 10th goal by scoring a penalty kick. Son will thus achieve double-digit goals for eight consecutive seasons in the league.
There is another scene that led to Tottenham’s victory. Davies’ great tackle in the very first half. He saved the team from crisis by clearing Newcastle’s cross into the box with a sliding tackle. Without his tackle, the ball would have been hit by the rushing Alexander Isak.
This defense scene drew rave reviews. I’ve never seen a cleaner clearance than the defense that Davis just did. It’s world class, said Dietmar Harman, who played for Bayern Munich and Newcastle in the past.
