Wolves vs Leicester City Player Ratings

Wolves:

José Sá(7/10): The Wolves keeper had a good game making a lot of high claims. He also made a few important saves.

Max Kilman (6.5/10): Kilman did not have an impactful game but helped keep the Leicester forwards at bay.

Conor Coady (6.7/10): The Wolves captain had a good game and held his defensive line well.

Romain Saïss(7/10): He made some good tackles and important clearances and blocks. There were a couple of shouts of handball against him though.

Nélson Semedo(6.2/10): The wingback could not really impose himself on the game and made some poor passes which ended up in possession being lost. Lookman got the better of him on many occasions.

Rayan Aït-Nouri(6.4/10): Made a lot of runs to support the forwards but could not really make anything happen.Defensively he did well.

Rúben Neves (7.4/10): Scored a trademark goal from Outside the box to open the scoring. Controlled the midfield very well and brought composure to the side.

Leander Dendoncker (6.7/10): Had a decent game in midfield but lacked the creative edge.

João Moutinho (6.6/10): The midfielder seemed to slow down the game at times but otherwise did well to switch the play and keep possession.

Raúl Jiménez (6.6/10): Cushioned the ball well to get the assist for the Neves goal. Apart from that, he had a quiet game but helped out defensively towards the end.

Daniel Podence (8.1/10): Was too hot to handle for the Leicester Defence at times with his pace and dribbling ability. Scored a great goal to secure all three points for his side,

Substitutes:

Hee-Chan Hwang (6.5/10): Came on in the 58th minute and was energetic from the get go.

Pedro Neto (NA): Did not have much time to impact the game as he came on in the 81st minute.

Fernando Marcal (NA): Did not have much time to impact the game as he came on in the 88th minute.

 

Leicester City

Kasper Schmeichel (5.8/10): Schmeichel did not come and claim any crosses and probably could have done better for both goals.

Çağlar Söyüncü (6.6/10): DId well to stop the Wolves’ forwards from progressing into the box.

Daniel Amartey (6.2/10): Had a quiet game and found it hard to cope with Daniel Podence.

Ricardo Pereira (7.1/10): He made a lot of darting runs from the right hand side trying to create something but his crosses were a little disappointing.

Luke Thomas (6.4/10): The left back could not make anything happen from the left hand side. Defensively he was ok but could have been better.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (6.6/10): Had a good game in midfield but could not find the final pass that was much needed for the team.

Wilfred Ndidi (6.4/10): Did not have a great impact on the midfield and was subbed off in the 74th minute.

Youri Tielemans (7.4/10): Played a wonderful ball to find Albrighton in the buildup to the first goal. He tested Jose Sa a few times with his shots from outside the box.

Marc Albrighton (6.9/10): Lost possession carelessly a few times but got the assist for the 1st goal and gradually got into the game. His decision making in the final third could have been better.

Ademola Lookman (8/10): Was constantly asking questions of the Wolves’ defence from the wing and was at the right place to slot in the equaliser at 1-1. He was arguably the best player on the pitch for Leicester.

Patson Daka (5.9/10): Had a very uneventful game and did not create any runs. Was subbed off in the 73rd minute.

Substitutes:

James Maddison (6.4/10): Came on in the 74th minute and added energy to the Leicester side but he wasted a couple of shots from outside the box when his team really needed him to score.

Kelechi Iheanacho (5.8/10): Came on for Daka but was not much of an improvement.
