Hwang Hee-chan beats Son Heung-min

After 64 years apart, Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) went from comrade to foe when they joined forces on the national team to win the Asian Cup. It was the second Korean derby of the season in the English Premier League (EPL), and this time, Hwang had the last laugh.

Wolverhampton won 2-1 behind a multi-goal performance from Joao Gomes in the 25th round of the 2023-2024 EPL against Tottenham Hotspur at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on Oct. 18 at 10:00 a.m. ET.

Spurs (14W, 5D, 6L, 47 pts), who had been on a roll with three wins and two draws in their last five games, lost ground at home, 바카라사이트 handing the fourth spot to Aston Villa (49 pts). They slipped to fifth.

Aston Villa defeated Fulham 2-1 at the same time.

Tottenham, in particular, have lost both meetings with Wolverhampton this season.

Wolverhampton, on the other hand, has succeeded in establishing itself as Tottenham’s nemesis with its counterattacks. They won the first meeting of the season 2-1 last November.

Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan, who have teamed up for the national team, went from comrade to foe.

Both were named in the starting lineup but failed to find the back of the net.

Son, who marked his return to the team by coming off the bench to assist on the come-from-behind winner against Brighton on Nov. 11, played the full game but was unable to make much of an impact against Wolverhampton.

He was content to set the tone early on with penetrating passes and incisive crosses.

Hwang Hee-chan was in the forward attacking lineup until the 43rd minute, rattling the Tottenham defense.

Wolverhampton took the lead in the 42nd minute through Gomes.

His precise header from a corner set piece found the back of the net for Tottenham.

Spurs didn’t have a single shot on target in the first half. It was an inefficient performance.

At the start of the second half, Tottenham equalized. After a throw-in, Kuluczewski beat a defender in a penalty box scramble and struck the ball between the goalkeeper’s crotch to equalize.

But Wolverhampton’s counterattack was fierce. In the 18th minute of the second half, on a counter-attack, Gomes burst into the box and slotted home a pass from Ferdo Neto for his second goal.

Tottenham made a late substitution in the 26th minute, bringing on Rodrigo Bentancur, Timo Werner and Brennan Johnson for Pape Sarr, 안전 토토사이트 Hischarlisson and Yves Bissouma, but it was not enough.

Son Heung-min, meanwhile, started the game with his right index and middle finger taped due to injuries sustained during an internal squad clash at the Asian Cup.
