Tottenham’s first half of the shock ‘… The first half ended with Newcastle trailing 0-5.

It was a truly shocking first half.

Tottenham conceded five goals in the first half alone in the away game at Newcastle United. The stage was an away game in round 32 of the 2022-23 English Premier League (EPL) held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England on the 23rd at 10pm (Korean time). After allowing 3 runs in the 9th minute of the game, the gap widened to 0-5 in the 21st minute of the first half. It is the second fastest humiliation in EPL history.

The defense collapsed from the start of the game. The opening goal was conceded just over a minute after the kick-off whistle blew. Joellington dug into the center from the left side of the penalty box and attempted a right-footed shot, and Jacob Murphy finished the ball off goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. No defense could stop Joellington in the process of breaking through the dribble. 

Tottenham conceded an additional goal before even reorganizing the line. In the 6th minute of the first half, Fabian Cher’s long pass was connected to Joellington, who was digging into the space behind the defense. Joellington calmly finished after knocking over the goalkeeper Lloris.

The nightmare did not end here. In the 9th minute of the first half, Eric Dyer’s unreasonable forward pass toward Son Heung-min was blocked by the opponent. After receiving the ball, Murphy connected with a powerful mid-range shot from the right side of the arc, shaking the Tottenham net vigorously. It was a shocking result as the gap between the two teams widened by 3 goals in the 9th minute of the first half.

Tottenham, driven into a corner, tried to turn the atmosphere around with Kane’s right-footed shot after Oliver Skip’s pass in the 13th minute of the first half. However, the shot went slightly off the goalpost and swallowed regret. Tottenham, who failed to take advantage of the opportunity, allowed the fourth goal in the 19th minute of the first half. In a counterattack situation, a pass toward the back of the defense was accurately connected to Alexander Isak. Isaac shook the Tottenham net again. 

After 2 minutes, the gap widened to 5 goals. Tottenham’s defense could not defend against the Newcastle attack, which was concisely developed from the right flank. Isaac finished another Sean Longstaff cutback. The score was 0-5 by the time halfway through the first half. This is the second-fastest finish in EPL history since Manchester City made it 5-0 in the 18th minute against Watford in September 2019.

The Tottenham bench replaced Pape Matar Sar in the 23rd minute and replaced Davinson Sanchez. After taking out the 4-3-3 model and conceding 5 goals, it belatedly returned to the existing 3-4-3 tactic. However, it was difficult to reverse the mood that had already gone too far. Kulusevski’s shot turned away from the goal post, and rather, Newcastle’s counterattack faced the crisis of conceding a sixth goal every time. In the end, the first half ended with Tottenham trailing 0-5.

On this day, acting manager Stellini started a 4-3-3 formation with Son Heung-min, Kane, and Kulusevski in the attacking line and three midfielders in the midfield. Oliver Skip, Pierre Emile Hoivier, and Sar were in the form of herpes in the midfield. The worst choice was to make a surprise change on this day after operating the 3-4-3 system throughout the season.토토사이트 The defensive line supported by Ivan Perisic, Dyer, Christian Romero and Pedro Poro and the goal guarded by Lloris led to a shocking result of five runs in the first half alone.
