Wolves: Hee-Chan Hwang fails to take his chance

Wolves failed to sign off from Molineux with a victory today as they were held to a 1-1 draw by already-relegated Norwich City in the Premier League.

The visitors took the lead through Teemu Pukki after 37 minutes before Rayan Ait-Nouri equalised early in the second half.

However, the West Midlands outfit were unable to find a winner and are now six games without a victory in the top flight.

To not be able to win in front of their own fans against a side whose fate has already been confirmed was incredibly poor with numerous passengers in the side.

Forward Hwang-hee Chan was certainly one of them after a quiet display against Dean Smith’s side.

The South Korean returned to the starting lineup having been on the bench against both Chelsea and Manchester City but struggled to make an impact.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

With just one shot off target and another blocked, the forward made little impact in the final third whilst also giving the ball away on eight occasions, having made just 37 touches, meaning he lost possession once every 4.6 touches.

Moreover, there was little defensive contribution from Hwang as well with zero clearances, blocks and tackles whilst making just one interception.

As well as that, the South Korea international lost most of his duels at 64% having won four from an attempted 11.

Lage’s biggest area to improve on over the summer will be his attack, with the lack of goals scored being an issue all campaign.

Only three sides have scored fewer goals than Wolves’ 37 in 37 matches with two of them already relegated.

With the likes of Raul Jimenez, Fabio Silva and Pedro Neto, as well as Hwang, able to play up front, the Portuguese manager will have to find a solution to unlock the talents of his best possible partnership.

Does Hwang have a future at Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It seems as though a dip into the transfer market will also be needed, which could spell trouble for the 26-year-old having only recently joined Wolves permanently from RB Leipzig after initially joining on loan from the Bundesliga outfit.

What is for sure is that Hwang will have to work hard over the summer and through pre-season to ensure he earns regular playing time at Molineux next campaign.
