Son Heung-min (29, Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (25, Wolverhampton) were both selected as the BBC’s Team of the Week.

Gas Crooks, who works as a panelist in the media, gathered the players who performed best in the 7th round of the EPL by position to form a team. Korean players Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan achieved the feat of being named at the same time.

The starter was Hwang Hee-chan. The Korean Bull was on the starting line-up in the match against Newcastle at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton and led the team to a 2-0 victory. Both goals came from Hwang’s foot.

In the 20th minute of the first half, he received a through pass from Raul Jimenez and scored his first goal. In the 13th minute of the second half, he received a pass from Jimenez and rushed to the penalty box to score the winning goal. It was his first multi-goal game since he joined the Premier League.

Heung-Min Son also played a big role. Heung-Min Son started the game against Aston Villa at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 3rd and played full-time to lead the team to a 2-1 victory. Son Heung-min was selected as the ‘King of the Match (Best Player)’ without scoring and the team broke three-game losing streak.

The BBC praised Hwang Hee-chan, saying, “Wolverhampton seems to have found an attacking partner with Jimenez. The two showed great performances against Newcastle. Hwang Hee-chan’s decisive power seems to be a great asset for Wolverhampton.”

Heung-Min Son also said, “Heung-Min Son provided two decisive assists (a goal from Moura determined as an own goal) to help goals from Højbjerg and Lucas Moura.”
