‘Tottenham Hotspur’s automatic starter.

This is the majesty of captain Son Heung-min.

British media outlet Football London analyzed Tottenham’s best 11 at the start of the season on Wednesday (KST). Among the seven undisputed starters and four contenders, Son was described as an ‘automatic starter’. This means that there is one player who can never be left out.

Tottenham’s new head coach, Enzi Kostekoglu, has changed his squad from head to toe compared to last season. Only Son and center back Cristian Romero remained the same under Antonio Conte.

‘Postecoglou has played deceptively easy attacking football, earning plenty of plaudits along the way,’ said Football London. ‘Postecoglou has a clear idea of his best 11,’ they said, praising his style.

Spurs kept seven players in goal: goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, center backs Romero and Micky Vanderven, left wing back Destiny Udogie, central midfielders Eves Bissouma and James Maddison, and striker Son Heung-min.

‘Tottenham captain Son Heung-min bounced back with a hat-trick against Burnley,’ says Football London. He is an automatic starter for Tottenham, whether he plays on the left wing or in the center. That means you start with him in the starting lineup.

The right fullback, one No. 8 central midfield spot, and two attacking spots outside of Son Heung-min are up for grabs. 토토사이트

At right wingback, Destiny Udogie is the frontrunner. One midfield spot is up for grabs, with Pape Sarr surging ahead of Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The back three is quite flexible thanks to Son Heung-min. He can play both left winger and center forward.

Kluczewski, who was an ironclad under Conte, is no longer guaranteed a place under Postecoglou. With the arrival of Brennan Johnson, the battle for a place in the starting lineup has become more difficult. At the same time, it’s an opportunity for him to potentially perform at his best.
