Two South Korean players, Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), are in the spotlight.
NBC Sports, a U.S. sports publication, on Wednesday described Son and Hwang as “fantastic Korean players” in the English Premier League scoring race for the 2023-2024 season. The outlet noted that Son has six goals and Hwang Hee-chan has four, making them the top scorers in the league.
After seven rounds of the Premier League, Son and Hwang are in peak scoring form and have continued their early season form.
Son has scored six goals in just three games this month. He scored a hat trick against Burnley and two goals in the North London derby against Arsenal. He followed that up with a goal against Liverpool in the last round. After scoring just 10 goals last season due to a combination of injuries, inconsistency, and team tactics, Son Heung-min has been filling the void left by Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich in the striker role.카지노사이트
Hwang Hee-chan has a good eye for goal. He recently scored a goal against Manchester City, earning praise from Pep Guardiola. With four goals already, he’s close to matching his Premier League tally from the 2021-2022 season (five). He needs one more goal to tie the record and two more to break it.
The current top scorer in the Premier League is Manchester City’s Elling Holland with nine goals. Son Heung-min is in second place, and West Ham United’s Jerrod Bojan is third with five goals. Hwang Hee-chan rounds out the top four, along with Bukayo Saka (Arsenal).
Both players will return home for the October A-match schedule after playing Premier League games over the weekend. Son will look to continue his goal-scoring streak against Luton Town on the 7th, and Hwang against Aston Villa on the 8th.
