Will Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) find the back of the net against Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, the man who helped him blossom in his new soccer career?
Tottenham will face Chelsea in the 11th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) on Nov. 7 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.
It will be the first time Pochettino will face the Blues as an opponent since he was sacked by Tottenham in 2019 for poor performance.
Pochettino brought Son to England after recognizing his potential while playing for Leverkusen in Germany.
Under Pochettino’s tutelage, Son went from a flanker to a key attacker for Tottenham in the 2016-2017 season.
Since Pochettino’s departure, Son has continued to thrive at Tottenham.
Since switching to a frontline role this season, he has scored eight goals in 10 league games and is in peak goal-scoring form.
In the last visit in Round 10, he scored a 21st-minute winner to secure a 2-1 victory.
After five days, Son is tied for second in goals this season with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) behind Manchester City’s Elling Holland (11).

Pochettino has worked with Son for so long that he is expected to have a plan in place.
In his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, Pochettino was asked how he would stop Son, and he replied: “Our center backs will have to stop him.
We know that Son is one of the best players in the English Premier League,” he said, “and I hope he doesn’t have a good night.”
Spurs are the only team in the league to remain unbeaten this season with eight wins and two draws in 10 games.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is an old-school club with just three wins, three draws, and four losses in 10 games, and is down to 12th place.
In their last game, they lost 0-2 to Brentford and are desperate to bounce back.
