Wolverhampton Wanderers faced off against Newcastle United at the Molineux Stadium earlier this evening hoping to pick up a positive result at home. Both sides cancelled each other out in the first half and went into the half-time break with nothing to split them.
The home side finally managed to grab the lead in the 80th minute courtesy of Raul Jimenez’s goal. However, Jacob Murphy scored a late equaliser to crush Nuno Espirito Santo’s hopes for the three points. The contest ended with Wolves being held to a 1-1 draw by Steve Bruce’s men.
Let’s take a look at how each Wolves player fared during the game against the Magpies.
GK: Rui Patricio – 6/10
The Portuguese keeper was hardly tested during the game but will be disappointed for conceding a late goal tonight.
CB: Willy Boly – 6/10
Boly made two important clearances over the course of the 90 minutes, but his efforts weren’t enough to keep a clean sheet in the end.
CB: Conor Coady – 6.5/10
The Liverpool-born talent organised his backline well and was defensively solid. However, he will be kicking himself for shipping in an 89th-minute equaliser.
CB: Max Kilman – 6/10
Kilman maintained a good shape in defence and passed the ball with accuracy out from the back.
RM: Nelson Semedo – 7.5/10
The ex-Barcelona wide player was excellent in the way he conducted himself down the right flank and ended up completing five dribbles during the 90 minutes. He even managed to orchestrate a couple of decent opportunities for his teammates to score.
CM: Leander Dendoncker – 5/10
Dendoncker worked hard to help his teammates out in defence but lacked the cutting edge in the opposition half.
CM: Ruben Neves – 7/10
The Portuguese midfielder was defensively strong and engineered a couple of inviting goal-scoring opportunities for his teammates in the opposition half.
CM: Pedro Neto – 7/10
Neto was a constant menace for the Magpies defenders with his tireless running and creativity in the attacking third.
LM: Romain Saiss – 6/10
He hardly gave away anything defensively but didn’t manage to create anything of note going forward.
ST: Raul Jimenez – 8/10
The Mexican striker caused a lot of problems for the Newcastle centre-backs and popped with the all-important opening goal in the 80th minute. He was arguably the best Wolves player on the field tonight.
ST: Daniel Podence – 7/10
Podence was always looking to stretch the pitch using his pace and dribbling ability. He put on a good show before being subbed off midway through the second half.
LM: Marcal – 6/10
He created just one good chance after coming off the bench.
ST: Adama Traore – 6/10
Traore had some bright moments during his time on the field.
CM: Joao Moutinho – N/A
The Portuguese midfielder did not have enough time to make an impact.
