Hwang “Bull” Hee-Chan (27-Wolverhampton) showed off his strong side against the big boys. Hwang scored his second goal and third in as many league games against Liverpool.
Hwang opened the scoring against Liverpool in the fifth round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, on Nov. 16, scoring in the seventh minute. Teammate Pedro Neto played a ground ball into the box after a solo run down the left flank, and Hwang struck a right-footed shot from the right flank of the goal area. Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker dived to his left and then sharply turned to his right to make the save, but the ball had already crossed the line. Considering the positioning of the players on both sides of the goal, the direction of the ball and pass, and the angle of the shot, the expected score was only 0.11. This means that it took nine shots to score a goal in a difficult situation.
It was his second goal in as many league games, after scoring against Crystal Palace in Round 4 on March 3. Hwang Hee-chan scored both of his goals with his head, but this time he used his feet. His three league goals are the same number he scored in 27 league games last season. In his third season at Wolverhampton, Hwang is showing signs of becoming a solution provider, with three goals in five games, tied for fifth in the league. More importantly, he has a high goal-to-playing time ratio. This season, Hwang has played a total of 199 minutes in five games, mostly as a substitute, and he’s still the team’s top scorer.
Hwang had a goal and an assist against Liverpool in the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League group stage with Salzburg in Austria. He also impressed against the Reds last season, scoring a goal in the English Football Association (FA) Cup and drawing an own goal in the league.
