Wolverhampton, where Hwang Hee-chan (26) played for 79 minutes, beat Crystal Palace and jumped to 13th place. Hwang Hee-chan showed compliance in his first start after returning from injury.
Wolverhampton won 2-0 against Crystal Palace in the 33rd round of the 2022-23 EPL held at Molineau Stadium in Wolverhampton, England on the 6th (Korean time). With this, Wolverhampton, who recorded 37 points, raised the ranking to 13th, widening the gap with Everton (28 points) in the relegation zone to 9 points.
It is difficult to be optimistic about the future situation as there are still matches against the remaining game powerhouses, but it is Wolverhampton that is increasing the possibility of remaining in the EPL on its own. The difference in points with 11th place Chelsea (39 points) also decreased to 5 points. If they do well for the rest of the season, they made the possibility of finishing in the top 10.
Hwang Hee-chan started as a right midfielder in the 4-4-2 formation and played the role of an offensive link for 79 minutes. Hwang Hee-chan, who showed active physical fights, breaking through the dribble, and forward passing to the forward striker, received a score of 6.8 from whoscored.com, a soccer statistics site.
Most of all, it is encouraging that he has completely shaken off his injury and is re-establishing himself in the team. Hwang Hee-chan, who missed 5 games due to a hamstring muscle injury during the previous season, scored his first goal of the season against 27R Newcastle, which was his return match. However, he had the unfortunate situation of missing two games due to an injury again.
However, Hwang Hee-chan returned safely and warmed up as a substitute in the match against Chelsea in the 30th round. Then, in the 32R Leicester game, he failed to prevent a 1-2 loss, but was put in in the 13th minute of the second half and diligently walked the ground, and in the 33R Palace game, he returned to the start and helped the team win.
On this day, the game was relatively different in the beginning. Wolverhampton opened the door with Diego Costa’s shot following a cross in the second minute of the first half. Then, in the 3rd minute of the first half, Joachim Andersen’s own goal took the lead from the beginning. 메이저놀이터
Palace’s goalkeeper Johnston saved Costa’s shot well, but then an unfortunate situation occurred on a corner kick. Palace defender Andersen, who was handling Wolverhampton’s corner kick, tried to kick the ball down, but the impact failed, and he scored an own goal that hit his own goal post and was sucked into the goal. It was a lucky opening goal for Wolverhampton. Afterwards, Palace also counterattacked by winning two corner kicks, but failed to score.
Hwang Hee-chan, who received the ball in the center of the field in the 13th minute of the first half, broke the dribble and stabbed a sensuous penetrating pass toward the front striker Diego Costa. However, it was regrettable that Costa was pushed out of the defense and competition and could not connect it to the attack.
Hwang Hee-chan attempted a direct attack in the 15th minute, but was ruled offside. In the 23rd minute of the first half, he was surrounded by three opposing defenders, but he fought vigorously until the end and even induced a foul.
