손흥민 아시아인 최초 EPL 10골-10도움

   손흥민(28·토트넘 홋스퍼)이 잉글랜드 프로축구 프리미어리그(EPL)에서 단일 시즌 '10골-10도움'이라는 금자탑을 쌓으며 정상급 만능 공격수임을 확인했다. 손흥민은 13일 오전(한국시간) 영국 런던의 토트넘 홋스퍼 스타디움에서 열린 2019-2020시즌 프리미어리그 35라운드 아스널과의 홈 경기에서 1골 1도움을 기록하며 팀의 2-1 역전승을 이끌었다.

The South Korean star has now scored in double figures in his fourth consecutive Premier League season.

Arsenal opened the scoring in the north London derby in the 16th minute on Alexandre Lacazette's goal, but Son tied it up at 1-1 just three minutes later.

Son intercepted an ill-advised pass by Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac, drove hard to the net and then chipped it past goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

It was Son's 10th goal of the Premier League season and 17th in all competitions in the 2019-2020 season. He hadn't scored in five previous matches since the Premier League resumed its season following an extended break forced by the coronavirus pandemic.

In the 81st, Son set up Toby Alderweireld's winner with the corner for his 10th assist of the season, putting him alone in third place in the category.

Son has joined Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City (11 goals and 18 assists) as the only two Premier League players this season with at least 10 goals and 10 assists.

Son is also the first Tottenham player to record a goal and an assist in a Premier League match against Arsenal since Emmanuel Adebayor did so in February 2012.
