Wolverhampton Wanderers’ first-half performance against Everton was nothing short of sublime.
After a couple of weeks of poor showings (despite decent results), Wolves were back to the style we saw in the first few weeks of the season at Molineux.
Bruno Lage’s side were zipping the ball about and pressing with intent.
They made life extremely difficult for Everton, who were lucky to go in just two goals down.
It was refreshing to watch, and long may that kind of football continue.
There were fantastic performances all over for Wolves.
Ruben Neves certainly caught the eye in midfield, with fans raving over him after the final whistle.
One thing that was very apparent against Everton, especially in that first-half, was how slick the link-up play between Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee-chan was.
Hwang operated from the left, but was never really too far away from his Mexican teammate.
The pair just seemed to be completely on the same wavelength.
So far this season, they have already combined for two goals – with Jimenez setting up both of Hwang’s strikes against Newcastle United.
The 30-year-old assisted Hwang again in the first-half against Everton, but the South Korean was just offside as VAR ruled it out.
Undoubtedly, they are looking a good combination, and will only get better the more they play together.
Hwang and Jimenez can fire Wolves up the table
Hwang really has been a brilliant signing so far.
He is powerful, technical, industrious, gets into great positions and has that eye for goal.
We already knew how good at linking play Jimenez is. Really, it isn’t all that surprising that these two top players are hitting it off.
Hopefully both can stay fit. Wolves fans can certainly hope for a solid season if they can play the bulk of the games.
What’s even more exciting is that this dynamic duo could well become a terrifying trio once Pedro Neto returns from injury.
