Calculating the Chances of Justin Hubner Debuting in the Premier League, Playing Against Liverpool or Man City?

Justin Hubner has officially been promoted to the Wolverhampton first team for the 2023/2024 Premier League . He has the opportunity to become the first Indonesian national team player to play in the Premier League.

Hubner was not included in the squad when Wolves U-21 met Newcastle in Week 15 of Premier League 2, Tuesday (5/3/2024) early morning WIB. This situation is quite surprising because Hubner has always been the focus.

Although not from the club’s official statement, recently the reason Hubner was missing from the Wolves U-21 squad was revealed. The 20 year old defender’s name is included in the list of Wolves first team players on the official Premier League website.

Hubner was promoted to the Wolves first team for the remainder of the 2023/2024 season. In this information, it is stated that Hubner is from Indonesia and will wear number 67. Read the full review below.

Justin Hubner’s Potential to Make History in 11 Premier League Matches

Justin Hubner has already been included in the list of Wolves players in the Premier League. That moment occurred in December 2023, when Wolves met Arsenal. However, Hubner has not had the opportunity to play.

Now, Hubner will regularly enter the Wolves first team. He has a greater chance of making the roster or even debuting in the Premier League than before.

Looking at the existing schedule, Wolves still have 11 matches remaining in the Premier League. Apart from that, Wolves are also still competing in the FA Cup.

In these 11 matches, there are big opponents that Wolves will face. The big opponents include Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool. The matches against Man City and Liverpool will be held in the final weeks and perhaps Hubner will make his debut.

Can Justin Hubner break into Wolves’ central defender competition?

Gary O’Neil, Wolves manager, has limited options at center back. Because he only has Craig Dawson, Max Kilman and Toti Gomes who play regularly. Then, Santi Bueno got the role as a substitute.

Gary O’Neil played with a basic formation of three defenders (3-5-2). So, with that situation, O’Neil certainly needs more central defenders. Eventually, he promoted Justin Hubner to the Wolves senior team.

Hubner’s opportunity to make his debut is certainly very open, especially if there are players who are not fit or suffer from card accumulation. Hubner’s chances of debuting in the Premier League are greater because he can play as a left back and defensive midfielder.
