It was a one-man show that killed the team. Dabinson Sanchez made a series of mistakes and tasted the humiliation of being replaced in the 23rd minute.

Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-3 to Bournemouth in the 31st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 15th at 11:15 pm (Korean time). Tottenham failed to add points and stayed in 5th place with 16 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses (53 points).

Son Heung-min’s goal faded. In the 14th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min scored the first goal for Tottenham by shooting straight from a cutback given by Ivan Perisic from the left. It was Son Heung-min’s second goal in a row and his eighth goal in the league.

However, a ‘horror show’ occurred in the defense. It all started with the injury of Clement Lenglet. Langle took a wrong step in the defense process in the 33rd minute of the first half and strained his muscles, and was eventually replaced by Sanchez in the 35th minute of the first half.

It was a situation where Sanchez’s performance was needed. But Sanchez betrayed the trust. In the 38th minute of the first half, Sanchez gave a pass to Pedro Poro, who had no space, and Poro lost the ball to the opponent with an excessive dribble. Afterwards, Sanchez completely missed the rushing Matias Viña while attempting a hasty forward defense, and eventually conceded the equalizer.

It was Sanchez who gave up the come-from-behind goal. In the 6th minute of the second half, Sanchez marked Marcus Tevennier, but was helpless by the dribble breakthrough. To stop this, he touched the ball, but it was headed to Dominic Solanke, and he even gave up a reverse goal.

In the end, it was replaced again after 23 minutes of game time. Interim coach Christian Stellini, who needed a goal, called back Sanchez in the 13th minute of the second half and put in Arnaut Danjuma. Sanchez came off the ground with his head down and nodded from the bench, seemingly acknowledging his mistake.

Local criticism continued after the game토토사이트. England’s ‘Football London’ gave Sanchez a rating of two and criticized him, saying, “The crowd booed his touch.” The UK’s ‘Evening Standard’ also gave it a rating of 3, saying, “It’s a cameo that decided the game miserably.” This was all Tottenham’s lowest point for the team.

Experts also said Sanchez made a mistake. Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara strongly criticized Sanchez, saying, “Sanchez should never come to the football field for Tottenham.”

It has also been argued that this is not just Sanchez’s problem. Perry Groves, a commentator for Britain’s ‘Talk Sports’, pointed out that the conceding was a problem for the entire team, saying, “To be honest, none of the Tottenham players scolded and shouted at their teammates.” Tottenham’s center back and captain Michael Dawson also sent a sympathetic gaze, saying, “I feel sorry for Sanchez.”
