Tottenham wrote a record that will go down in history with defeat.
Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-3 to Brentford in the 37th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th at 8:30 pm (Korean time). With this defeat, Tottenham fell to 8th place.
Until the first half, Tottenham’s performance was very good. Tottenham, who took the lead with Harry Kane’s wonderful goal in the 8th minute of the first half, overwhelmed Brentford despite the absence of a large number of key players.
However, as the second half began, we returned to the familiar Tottenham we knew. Five minutes into the second half, Tottenham, who allowed Brian Mbemo to equalize, began to collapse. In the 12th minute of the second half, he conceded a goal in a similar pattern to Mpemo, eventually allowing a turnaround.
Ryan Mason, acting manager of Tottenham, hurriedly put in an attacking team, but Tottenham could not create a chance to turn around at all. David Raya’s saving show could not be an excuse for Tottenham. In the end, Tottenham allowed an additional run at the end of the second half and lost 1-3 in the last home game of the season.
With this defeat, Tottenham achieved 62 goals this season. It was a team that ranked 4th in the league with 40 goals conceded in 38 games last season, but Tottenham’s goals increased by a whopping 1.5 times. It is now ranked 6th in the most goals scored. It is hard to believe even if there was no clear defender recruitment. The composition of the defensive line has not changed much, and the tactical system based on three backs is the same, but the team is broken.
There is also a record set by Tottenham when they broke 60 goals. They became the team that scored more than 60 goals and conceded 60 goals in the league. A team that scored more than 60 goals in a season in the EPL basically means that it is a strong team. Looking at the scoring indicators right now, Tottenham is very outstanding with the 6th most scored. There are at most 7-8 teams in the league that have scored 60 or more goals in a season.안전놀이터
Teams with good offensive stats usually have good defensive stats as well. However, Tottenham conceded as many goals as they scored. It means that the airborne balance is messed up. With this in mind, the US’CBS Sports’ highlighted that “Tottenham in the 2022-23 season is the only team to score and concede more than 60 goals. This is the second record in EPL history.”
The unfortunate thing is that Tottenham is also the first team in EPL history to score more than 60 goals and concede more than 60 goals in a single season. In the 2007-08 season, Tottenham scored 66 goals and conceded 61 goals. At that time, the ranking was 11th, which was even worse than this season.
