No. 1 on SON! No. 2 on HWANG! …PL has turned upside down, Salah + Holland is worse than Korean Guys

Football 365, a British football media outlet, drew attention on the 12th (Korea time) by placing Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan in first and second place, respectively, while selecting the best goal-setting players in the Premier League.

Son recorded six goals in terms of his expected score (xG) this season, but he actually scored 10 goals. This means that he scored four more goals than he should have scored. “Son Heung-min scored double digits this season, and is now able to continue his record for the eighth consecutive season,” the media said. “He is fully enjoying Tottenham Hotspur manager Anji Postecoglou’s tactics.”

Son Heung-min set a 10-goal milestone for the eighth consecutive season with a penalty kick in the 40th minute of the second half of the 2023/24 English Premier League round against Newcastle United on the 11th. Son Heung-min has scored double digits for eight consecutive seasons, the seventh time in Premier League history. It is an achievement that only players who will remain in the history of the league can achieve. 파워볼실시간

Wayne Rooney (11 seasons), a legendary striker of Manchester United, has been a double-digit scorer for the longest period in a row. Behind them are Chelsea’s Frank Lampard (10 seasons), Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Son’s former teammate Harry Kane (nine seasons), Arsenal’s Thierry Henry and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane. Son will also be named in the list.

Moreover, Son Heung-min did not leave two records at a club until he achieved the record, but with Son joining, Tottenham will produce double-digit scorers for the eighth consecutive season after Harry Kane. If Son Heung-min scores double-digit points again next season, he will be tied with Kane and will jump to fifth place in the rankings.

Hwang Hee-chan also has a gap of +4 between the xG value and the actual score. Hwang Hee-chan’s xG value is 4, but he has already scored eight goals this season. The media praised his team, Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves), citing the manager Gary O’Neill’s remarks. “Hwang Hee-chan is a player who knows exactly when to reach a position to score,” O’Neill said at a press conference ahead of the Premier League’s 16th round match against Nottingham Forest on the 10th.

In particular, Hwang Hee-chan erased his somewhat sluggish past Premier League records in a short period of time and made a sharp leap forward.

He wanted to reduce his position on the Premier League stage by scoring only four goals in 32 matches (three Premier League goals) in the 2022/23 season, but he has easily exceeded his current scoring record, which is less than half of the season. Hwang Hee-chan is six goals apart from Manchester City’s Elling Holan, who is currently ranked first in the league’s top scorer.

In contrast, Holan scored more points than Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool did not make the top 10. The gap between the two players’ xG value and the actual score is small. According to FbRef, a soccer statistics website, Salah has an xG value of 10.6, which is 0.4 different from the actual score of 11. He scored a goal.

Hollande’s score is a little low. The xG value is equivalent to 14.8, but the actual score is 14. In fact, he has scored one goal. In the 14th round of the last league against Tottenham, Hollande kicked the ball with his left foot when he was faced with a shot equal to xG 0.4 in the 13th minute of the first half, but missed the shot in vain. At the time, Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario was completely shifted to the left side of the net, so the scoring opportunity was not very difficult, but it was missed.

Considering that 0.4 of xG is lower than expected because xG does not consider the goalkeeper’s position and so on, Holland’s finishing this season is not as sharp as expected. “Football 365” also said, “Live? Holan? Son Heung-min is the player with the best finishing touch in the Premier League,” showing a completely different result than expected.
