Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-min, who exploded for a hat-trick, has been named in the English Premier League (EPL) weekly best 11.The forward was named in the EPL’s Team of the Week for the fourth round of the 2023-2024 season, which was announced by the EPL office on its website on Thursday (local time).Alan Shearer, a legendary striker and journalist who selects the official best 11, said of Son: “Heung-min scored a hat-trick. He seems to relish the pressure of being a key player in the team.”Son scored in the 16th minute of the first leg and again in the 18th and 21st minutes of the second leg in Tottenham’s 5-2 win over Burnley in the fourth round on Sunday.In a fan poll on the EPL’s official website, which attracted more than 40,000 votes, Son was voted Man of the Match with an overwhelming 58.4 per cent of the vote, ahead of teammate James Maddison (27.1 per cent), and was given a whopping ’10’ rating by local media outlet Football London.Football stats specialists Fourscore.com and Footmob both gave him a rating of 9.6, the highest for either side.Joining Son in the best 11 forwards were Elling Holland (Manchester City) and Evan Ferguson (Brighton).The trio exploded for a hat-trick on the same day in the EPL for the first time in 28 years since Robbie Fowler-Alan Shearer-Tony Yeboah in September 1995.Holland scored three goals at Fulham and Ferguson scored three goals at home to Newcastle United.Their historic performances also earned them the front three spots in the BBC’s Best 11 of the round the day before.In addition to Tottenham vice-captain Maddison, the EPL named Declan Rice (Arsenal), Luis Paqueta (West Ham) and Billy Gilmour (Brighton) as the midfielders with the best performances of Round 4.The defenders were Joe Gomes (Liverpool), Willy Boly and Joe Worrall (both Nottingham).Jordan Pickford (Everton) was named goalkeeper.In addition, Ange Postecoglou, who has guided Tottenham to three straight wins, was named manager of the week.”The players love his attacking 3-4-3 토토 formation,” Shearer added.
