Oh no! I can't watch Son Heungmin's game on TV

Tottenham, where Son Heung-min plays with the captain's armband, will play an away match against Sheffield United in the final 38th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League at Braemar Lane in Sheffield, England, at 0:00 on the 20th. The nine-month journey since the season began in August last year will end on the same day. Son Heung-min, who struggled hard after being appointed captain, can now have some time to clean up. Of course, Tottenham will fly to Melbourne, Australia immediately after the match, and play an afterseason friendly match there on the 22nd, but the turbulent season will end anyway.

However, it is known that Tottenham-Sheffield United cannot be seen in England.

"Spurs Army" reported on Wednesday that Tottenham's away match against Sheffield, which will take place on the last day of the Premier League, will not be televised in the U.K. "You can't watch it in the U.K."

At first glance, it is hard to believe. It is understandable that 380 matches of the Premier League are broadcasted in one season.

On the one hand, the value of this game is not great, so it may be considered the most indifferent game in the UK. Tottenham has played 37 games this season, and it is certain that it will rank fifth with 63 points. If Tottenham loses at Sheffield away and Chelsea (60 points) wins a home game against Bournemouth at the same time, the two teams could be reversed due to differences in their rankings, but it is less interesting that Sheffield United is the team that not only relegation but also ranked at the bottom of the table with the worst performance of the season.

Sheffield had 16 points and was confirmed to be ranked 20th out of 20 teams regardless of whether they won or lost against Tottenham on the day. The defense was terrible enough to score 35 goals and score 101 goals. Tottenham is sluggish with one win and five losses in the last six games, but Tottenham under the leadership of Son Heung-min is not an opponent to beat.

As a result, it seems to have fallen behind in the priority list.

On the final day of the Premier League, matches will be held at 10 stadiums at the same time, with matchups such as Arsenal-Everton, Brentford-Newcastle, Brighton-Manchester United, Burnley-Nottingham, Chelsea-Bonmouth, Liverpool-Wolverhampton, Luton Town-Fulham, and Manchester City-West Ham. Other matches are attracting attention due to the competition for the championship, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp's farewell match, and the relegation zone war.

However, the match between Tottenham and Sheffield United can be watched live in Korea.
