Tottenham Hotspur faced Manchester City in the round of 32 of the 2023-2024 FA Cup at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, at 5 a.m. on the 27th (Korea time) and lost 0-1.
This concludes Tottenham’s FA Cup journey. Manchester City is heading to the round of 16.꽁머니사이트
Tottenham brought up a 4-2-3-1 formation. Hishalisson was at the forefront, and Timo Werner-Brennan Johnson-Dejan Kulusevski was in the second line of attack. Rodrigo Bentancur-Pierre Emile Hoivier protected the four-back, and Destiny Udogi-Mickey van der Ben-Christian Romero-Pedro Porro made up the four-back. The goal was saved by Guglielmo Vicario.
James Maddison sat on the bench for the match. He replaced Rodrigo Bentancur in the 28th minute of the second half when he was on the 0-0 balance.
Offensive midfielder Madison served as a lubricant for Tottenham’s attack with his outstanding dribbling, passing, and on-off-the-ball movements. He has emerged as a new partner since Harry Kane, helping Son Heung-min score goals and sometimes connecting his passes to score goals.
Son Heung-min and Madison entertained fans by hosting a ceremony together. When Son scored a goal, they performed a “click” ceremony, and when Madison scored, they performed a “dart ceremony.”

Madison quickly adapted to the team, but was unable to play after collapsing due to an injury against Chelsea on Nov. 7 last year. Regarding Madison’s absence, the British Football London said, “Madison’s time away from the stadium feels like a lifetime.”
Madison’s absence, which felt particularly long, ended with this game.
Madison did not play for a long time as it was his comeback in a long time. He played for 22 minutes until extra time, recording only six ball touches and leaving an 80 percent pass success rate (4/5).
They are Tottenham and Madison, who would have missed Son Heung-min playing in the Asian Cup as a member of the Korean national team. Werner, who played as a left winger instead of Son Heung-min, finished the match without even recording a single shot. He attempted a fast attack, but was completely blocked by Kyle Walker.
Did Son Heung-min watch the match? Tottenham, which is currently in the midst of preparing for a match against Saudi Arabia in the round of 16 in Qatar, posted a photo of themselves watching the match at a place believed to be a hotel on its social media account on Wednesday.
Son Heung-min tagged Tottenham’s official account in the post and wrote “COYS (Come on you spurs),” Tottenham’s cheering phrase.
Despite Son’s support, the match ended with Tottenham’s defeat. Tottenham was defeated by Nathan Ake’s winning goal from a corner kick in the 43rd minute of the second half.
