Tottenham star had brilliant individual stats despite Everton defeat

Heung-Min Son may have ended up on the losing side last night in the FA Cup, but he delivered a masterclass in Tottenham’s defeat.

Spurs were beaten 5-4 away to Everton on Wednesday night in the FA Cup fifth round, with Bernard scoring a winner in extra time for the hosts.

Jose Mourinho’s side are already in the final of the Carabao Cup, but were eliminated from the other domestic cup competition in midweek after a memorable encounter at Goodison Park.

Son, 28, will not receive too much credit as his contribution was in a losing cause.

But the stats prove he was individually superb.

According to football statisticians Who.Scored, the Spurs attacker provided six key passes in the match, which is a pass that directly leads to a shot from a teammate.

 

The £22million (BBC) South Korean also received a 9.80 rating for his performance, with a pass accuracy of 88 per cent and also 82 touches.

Son played the full 120 minutes against Everton and scored extremely highly in the stats.

The left-winger chalked up two assists, one which was an incredible cross into the box for his usual partner in crime Harry Kane to send the match to extra time.

It was yet another reminder of the kind of form he’s been in during the past couple of years, as he’s elevated himself into the bracket of one of the elite talents playing in England.

He’s scored 17 goals and set up 12 assists in 33 games across all competitions so far this season for the North London club.
