The match, taking place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, is not just another game in the 2023-2024 EPL season — it is being dubbed the “Korean Derby,” a testament to the remarkable talent and influence of these two Korean stars in international football.

Tottenham, under the leadership of Son Heung-min, has seen a notable upturn in their fortunes. The team has been unbeaten in their last five league games, recording three wins and two draws. This impressive streak has propelled Tottenham from fifth to fourth place, securing them a spot in the UEFA Champions League qualifying position with 47 points.

Son, who serves as Tottenham’s captain, has been instrumental in this resurgence, showcasing his adaptability and skill, particularly noted in his quick return to form after the Asian Cup, where he provided a crucial assist that led to a dramatic 2-1 victory against Brighton.

On the other side, Wolverhampton has been holding its ground with a commendable season performance. The team stands at 11th place, having accumulated 32 points.

Hwang Hee Chan, despite suffering a recent injury, has been a pivotal player for Wolverhampton — contributing 10 goals and 3 assists this season. His return, as preciously mentioned by Wolverhampton manager Gary O’Neil, adds an extra layer of anticipation for the match.

The personal dynamics between Son and Hwang add a complex narrative to the match as well. Following a tense incident during the Asian Cup involving Son and PSG star Lee Kang In, fans fear the atmosphere between the two Korean players could be awkward due to the amount of media buzz around the national team right now.

In previous reports, Hwang is said to have stood next to Son in the argument — even being among those who “threatened” to leave the national team if Lee Kang In is selected for future matches.
