Heung-min and Hee-chan are doing well… ’14 games without scoring’ Il-Ace’s ‘worst slump’

Brighton and Hove Albion drew 1-1 with Burnley in the 16th round of the English Premier League during the 2023-24 season at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, England, on Thursday. Brighton were pulled away by Wilson Odover’s first goal in the 45th minute. However, Simone Adingra’s equalizer in the 32nd minute struck the ball. 파친코

Brighton only managed to get one point and took a breather. However, one concern persists within the team. It is the lackluster performance of Kaoru Mitoma, who was the team’s ace until last season.

Mitoma stepped on the ground as a substitute at the start of the second half of the match against Burnley. However, she did not perform very well. Football statistical media “Foot Mob” gave Mitoma a 6.0 rating, the lowest in her team. Mitoma, who usually dribbles spectacularly, scored a total of four dribbling failures in the match against Burnley alone.

In addition to this, he faced a decisive chance to give the team three points in extra time in the second half, but it was canceled due to the save of the opposing goalkeeper, Trafford.

Mitoma eventually went scoreless in 14 consecutive official matches in recent years, including against Burnley. The last scoring match was against Bournemouth on Sept. 25. Mitoma scored two goals in the match. In the following 14 matches, he has only had two assists.

It is frustrating for Brighton. Mitoma became the team’s ace last season. In 41 matches, he has scored 10 goals and eight assists. Brighton acknowledged Mitoma’s performance and signed a four-year contract last October.

However, his slump has continued since he renewed his contract with Asian players Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan, both of whom are playing in the Premier League. Son is ranking third in goal tally with nine goals in this season’s league, while Hwang is tied for fourth in goal tally with eight goals, including Dominic Solanke, Ollie Watkins and Giroud Bowen.
