Son Heung-min’s performance is perfect. In the 4th round EPL match against Burnley, Tottenham conceded a goal and was down 0-1 in the 16th minute of the first half. After a pass play with Manor Solomon, the goalkeeper came out and confirmed that there was space, and scored the equalizer with a sensational chip shot.

Son Heung-min’s scoring spree did not stop. In the 22nd minute of the second half, he penetrated into the space behind Burnley’s defense and scored again after receiving a pass from Foro. It was his first hat trick this season.
Son Heung-min achieved his fourth career hat trick against Burnley this season, following Southampton (2020/21 season), Aston Villa (2021/22 season), and Leicester City (2022/23 season).
Son Heung-min also shined in the North London derby against Arsenal. He hit Arsenal’s net in the second minute of the first half, but swallowed his disappointment as offside was declared. Afterwards, in the 22nd minute of the first half, an amazing pass was made from the right side and Johnson showed a threatening shot, but the goalkeeper saved the ball and the attack point record was lost.
However, Son Heung-min was extraordinary. In the 42nd minute of the first half, James Madison opened the scoring with a sensuous touch that slightly changed the direction of a pass given after a mixed situation at the gate. This was the 4th EPL goal this season.
The scoring cannon operation did not stop. In the 10th minute of the second half, Madison stole the ball from Jorginho through pressure, broke through, and launched a counterattack. He gave up a pass, but Son Heung-min scored in a 1:1 situation with the goalkeeper. It was the moment when the 5th EPL goal was scored.

He immediately took on the role of starting the attack, showing off his presence as a playmaker and becoming a blessing in disguise. He is focusing on creating opportunities with sharp kicks while playing both attack and central midfield positions.
Maddison made a brilliant start to the 2023/24 season by recording two assists in the opening game of the 2023/24 season against Brentford.
Afterwards, in the 3rd round match against Bournemouth, he scored his first goal in a Tottenham uniform, and in the 4th round match against Burnley, he scored twice in a row.
Madison was also rewarded for his performance this season when he was named Player of the Month for August. Thanks to this, he showed off his presence by recording assists for all of Son Heung-min’s multiple goals in the North London derby against Arsenal.
Madison has established himself as an indispensable player for Tottenham this season, recording 2 goals and 4 assists in 7 games as a playmaker.
