Wolverhampton Wanderers saw out a 0-0 draw with Leicester City at the Molineux. We saw a resolute Wolves side, which was a joy to see as it had been missing in previous weeks.
In the first half the Foxes piled on the pressure but couldn’t find a way through, as Wolves threw their bodies in front of everything. Pedro Neto shone in the first half as he created lots of chances down the left-hand side, and was Wolves’ most dangerous player.
As the second half went on the Old Gold grew into the game, with Adama Traore Being the most effective player down the right-hand side.
Both sides made chances that the game, but neither could find the finishing touch that was needed to win the match.
Let’s take a look at how the Wolves players got on individually in a game that could have been won by either side.
Rui Patricio: 6.5/10 - Patricio didn't have too much on his plate today, but he gave a good account for himself. He was quick off his line when the ball was played through, and he contributed to a solid Wolves defensive performance.
Jonny Castro Otto: 6.5/10 - Having had six months on the sideline, Jonny came back into the side and did well. In the first half, he looked solid and made a brilliant double block to deny James Maddison. He was withdrawn at half time, which is worrying but Wolves will be hoping everything is okay.
Max Kilman: 6/10 - Kilman had a quiet game, but was important in the solidarity of Wolves. He won the headers that he needed to, looked comfortable on the ball, and produced a magnificent block to deny Harvey Barnes a goal in the second half. He came into the squad and replaced Willy Boly, and filled his boots adequately.
Conor Coady: 7/10 - Coady captained the team well and was a vital part of a solid defensive performance from Wolves, especially in the first half. He commanded his team very well, as he always does and started to look like the Conor Coady that Wolves fans have come to love.
Leander Dendonker: 6/10 - Leander Dendonker had to fill in to the back three of Wolverhampton Wanderers today and looked at home. He was solid when defending corners, and also provided Wolves with some quality on the ball when playing out from the back.
Nelson Semedo: 6.5/10 - Having been seen as a target in the Wolves defence for many teams this season, Semedo yet again showed his quality today, as he was solid at the back and good going forward. He has had a tough time in England so far, but it is starting to look like Wolves are getting what they paid for now.
Ruben Neves: 6.5/10 - Ruben Neves played well and played a huge part in controlling the game for Wolves. He had a huge chance in the first half as the ball dropped on the edge of the box which saw him fire over. Another solid performance from Neves, which will please Wolves fans.
Joao Moutinho: 6/10 - After winning Wolves the game with a spectacular strike against Arsenal, Moutinho had a solid game and was impressive throughout. Despite not shining like he did against Arsenal, Moutinho was an important cog in a very good Wolves side today.
Pedro Neto: 7.5/10 - Neto was Wolves' best player in the first half and was the catalyst for the majority of Wolves chances. He dominated the left hand side, leaving Ricardo Pereira chasing shadows. He wasn't really able to get into the game as much in the second half, but his performance in the first half was a joy to watch.
Willian Jose: 6/10 - The loanee from Real Sociedad struggled to get into the game and didn't have many touches of the ball. He tried hard and closed down well, but was unable to get on the end of any balls into the box. He did allow the wingers to play more freely however, which helped Wolves going forward.
Adama Traore: 7/10 - Adama started slowly in the first half and appeared in bursts, but he grew into the game in the second half and became a huge threat. He was Wolves' main man going forward, and Leicester's best was to stop him was to foul him.
Ki-Jana Hoever (Replaced Jonny, 45'): 6/10 - Having come on for the returning Jonny, Hoever was good in the second half. He nullified the threat of Ayoze Perez and Mark Albrighton down the right-hand side, which is a very promising sign. More experience for Hoever today, which will only do him well going forward.
Fabio Silva (Replaced Willian Jose, 61'): 6/10 - The youngster came off the bench and was relatively quiet. He did however, force a great save out of Kasper Schmeichel, from six yards out, after the ball dropped to him in the box.
Morgan Gibbs-White (Replaced Neto, 87'): N/A
