Wolverhampton went into a 4-2-3-1 formation. Jose Sa guarded the goal and Ait Nouri, Dawson, Kilman, and Semedo formed the back four. Lemina and Joao Gomes were in charge at the waist, Hwang Hee-chan, Belleglade and Neto were in charge of the second line, and Cunha was in the front line.

Liverpool had a 4-3-3 pattern. With Alisson wearing the goalkeeper’s gloves, Robertson, Matip, Quinza and Joe Gomes formed a back four. Szoboszlai, McAllister, and Curtis Jones took charge of the midfield, while Jota, Hakpo, and Salah were deployed up front.

The first goal came from Hwang Hee-chan in the 7th minute of the first half. Neto passed three players with a bold breakthrough from the left flank and delivered a ground ball cross to the goal. Hwang Hee-chan, who was rushing from the other side, connected with a right-footed inside shot, which was later blocked by goalkeeper Alisson, but the ball had already crossed the goal line. Hwang Hee-chan’s third goal of the season.

Liverpool launched a counterattack, but had difficulty getting a finishing shot. On the other hand, Wolverhampton gave up possession but made sharp intermittent counterattacks.

The attack started from Neto on the left in the 27th minute of the first half. Hwang Hee-chan succeeded in beating one defender with a chest trap on Neto’s long cross. However, he was caught by Robertson, who came in to cover, and was unable to shoot.

In the 33rd minute of the first half, Neto crossed from the left, and Cunha had a free header, but was unable to hit the ball accurately. Hwang Hee-chan also showed off his active physical fight and defensive participation by reaching the goal line in the 37th minute of the first half. Because the team operated a defensive concept, Hwang Hee-chan only touched the ball 18 times in the first 45 minutes.

Liverpool substituted Luis Dias at the start of the second half. Luis Diaz attempted a sharp shot in the first minute of the second half, but he missed the left side of the goal. Liverpool, with a revitalized attack, made up for a goal in the 10th minute of the second half. Hakpo, who was rushing towards the goal, pushed in through passes from Jota and Salah.

Liverpool brought in Hakpo and Nuñez in the 11th minute of the second half to improve their offensive line. Wolverhampton also made a substitution in the 15th minute of the second half. Matt Doherty was substituted in place of Hwang Hee-chan, who scored the first goal. Fabio Silva took Cunha’s place at the top.

Wolverhampton’s offensive power decreased significantly compared to the first half. Liverpool led the way throughout the second half. Eventually, in the 40th minute of the second half, Robertson received Salah’s pass and scored a goal, turning the tide. Wolverhampton lost the power to chase after Bueno’s own goal in the 46th minute of the second half.

Hwang Hee-chan, best pace since joining Wolverhampton

Hwang Hee-chan was not given many opportunities last season in his second year at Wolverhampton due to injuries and poor performance. After ending the first half with 0 goals, he gained the trust of coach Julen Lopetegui, who took over the baton in the second half, and scored three goals in the second half alone, when he had more opportunities to play as a starter.

The sudden news of his resignation lowered expectations that he would become a starting player under Coach Lopetegui this season. The atmosphere was chaotic as coach Lopetegui left the team just a few days before the start of the new season.

As coach Gary O’Neill took office as the new head coach, Hwang Hee-chan was pushed to the bench. Nevertheless, Hwang Hee-chan was brought in as a joker in the second half and left a strong impact. He attempted the most shots in the team despite only playing 27 minutes in the first round match against Manchester United, and scored one goal as a joker in the second half against Brighton in the second round. He started as a starter in the 3rd round match against Everton, but was unfortunately injured and was substituted after playing only 45 minutes.

After recovering from an injury, he started on the bench in the 4th round match against Crystal Palace, but was substituted in the 15th minute of the second half and showed his presence by scoring an important equalizer 5 minutes later.스포츠토토

In the end, Hwang Hee-chan was named to the starting lineup again in the 5th round match against Liverpool. Unlike in the second half when he mainly scored goals as a joker, on this day Hwang Hee-chan scored the first goal in the 7th minute of the first half. It has been four years since he scored a goal in the UEFA Champions League against Liverpool as a member of Austria Salzburg in the 2018-19 season.

However, Wolverhampton coach O’Neill had Hwang Hee-chan play for only 60 minutes and then substituted him out. The early replacement of Hwang Hee-chan, the team’s highest scorer and highest goal scorer, leaves much to be desired. In the absence of Hwang Hee-chan, Wolverhampton continued to play poorly in the second half and suffered a come-from-behind loss to Liverpool.

This season, Hwang Hee-chan created the formula of 1 shot = 1 goal in the 2nd round against Brighton, the 4th round against Crystal Palace, and the 5th round against Liverpool. This shows that goal-making ability has improved significantly compared to the past. Additionally, three of Wolverhampton’s five goals this season came from Hwang Hee-chan.

Above all, it is encouraging that he has already surpassed the 3rd goal of the season in just 5 rounds. It is tied with 3 goals last season. In addition, he is only one goal away from his highest scoring record (4 league goals) in the 2021-22 season. This is his best scoring pace since joining Wolverhampton.
