NICK PARKES GIVES HIS PLAYER RATINGS FOR WOLVES V LIVERPOOL
JOSE SA 6
A quintessential Jose performance, sloppy distribution but great saves.
HUGO BUENO 5
Started decently against a pacey liverpool right side. Would have liked to see how he handled Salah and Trent throughout the 90 but injury forced him off prematurely
MAX KILMAN 7
One part of a solid centre back showing with our defence constantly under attack but handled most things that came his way and an excellent last ditch tackle early on in the second half.
CRAIG DAWSON 7 & MAN OF THE MATCH
Similar to Kilman, headed away and blocked almost all that came his way. Showed his experience throughout.
NELSON SEMEDO 6
Another decent performance in the book. Looking much better both going forward and at the back. Slight ball watching on the wing which led to Liverpool’s second but overall not a bad performance.
RUBEN NEVES 5
Apart from a delightful cross field ball early on in the game Neves was run ragged by Liverpool’s midfield.
MARIO LEMINA 6
Up against it all game with the constant flow of Liverpool’s attacks but handled himself well and if other players contributed more, he would have looked very very good. Did all he could under the circumstances.
MATHEUS NUNES 2
If Liverpool still want him after these performances they can gladly have him. Another hidden performance in a season of hidden performances. Non-existent apart from a neat one-two with Moutinho early on and a cheeky run passed a few Liverpool players. Pathetic performance for a player who has so much “talent”.
JOAO MOUTINHO 5
Starting to feel really sorry for such a distinguished player, playing out of position in a team which creates next to nothing with attacking players on the pitch. He should not be playing so far up field and this performance again highlighted his lack of attacking prowess and overall agility.
PABLO SARABIA 3
Another drab performance for a player with “talent”. Pushed off the ball far too often and caused zero threat going forward.
RAUL JIMENEZ 6
Cannot fault his effort but Konate had Raul in his pocket. Out muscled and unable to hold up play. Nice bicycle kick early on but after that just running around. Why he was left to mark Van-Dijk for the first goal is a mystery. The wait for a striker’s goal goes on but with how void of ideas going forward it is no wonder he can’t score.
RAYAN AIT-NOURI 6
Handled himself well against a potent attack, no realt threat going forward but that goes for the whole squad.
ADAMA TRAORE 3
Provided nothing, another period of hot and cold Adama.
DIEGO COSTA 5
Difficult to judge because of the lateness of his arrival but same as Adama provided and changed nothing.
DANIEL PODENCE 4
I may as well copy and paste for most of our subs. Came on, did nothing, walked off at full-time. Another poor cameo from Podence.
JOAO GOMES 5
Work rate was up there but similar to those mentioned above, made no impact.
