Hwang Hee-chan will be in the hunt for goals against Burnley

South Korean soccer international “goalie” Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who plays in the English Professional Soccer League (EPL), will be in the hunt for goals against Burnley midweek.

Hwang’s Wolverhampton Wanderers will host Burnley in the 15th round of the 2023-2024 EPL at the Molineux Stadium in England on June 6 at 4:30 a.m. KST.

Wolverhampton, who suffered their second straight defeat in the last three days with a 1-2 loss away to leaders Arsenal, are 13th in the standings with 15 points.

They need to end their losing streak against Burnley if they want to make a mid-table push.

The key to Wolverhampton’s rebound is the team’s top scorer, Hwang Hee-chan.

After scoring his seventh league goal (eight for the season, including one in cup competitions) 안전놀이터 from the penalty spot against Fulham in Round 13 (2-3 loss), Hwang played the full game against Arsenal in Round 14 but failed to register a point.

He registered two shots (one on target) against the Gunners, but was far from scoring.

Tied for sixth on the scoring list with Alexander Isaacs, Callum Wilson (Newcastle) and Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth), Hwang will look to reignite his goalscoring form against Burnley.

He is two goals behind Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who is third on the list with nine goals.

Hwang hasn’t gone two games without a goal in 14 league games this season. That’s why he’s expected to score against Burnley.

The opponent is Burnley, a promoted team this season, who are currently in 19th place (7 points) in the relegation zone after 14 rounds.

They have a very shaky defense, having conceded 32 goals in 14 games. That’s the second-highest number of goals conceded by any team, behind only last-place Sheffield Wednesday (39).

However, they have a 5-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the previous 14 rounds, so they shouldn’t be too worried.

Hwang Hee-chan will lead the Wolverhampton frontline alongside Cunha in place of the injured Pedro Neto.

Despite two consecutive defeats, the Toffees are strong at home, where they are unbeaten in four games (W2 D2).
