Wolves player ratings

Jose Sa 7

The goalkeeper was immaculate with his passing. He also made a few decent saves but could not bring the clean sheet home.

Nelson Semedo 6

Did very well going forward but looked pretty suspect defending against Lookman.

Max Kilman 7
Looked to really struggle to keep Lookman at bay in the first half. But grew into the game and got the better of Lookman in the second half.

Conor Coady 7
The skipper made a few important interceptions in the game. He made a very crucial interception to deny Daka a tap-in goal.

Romain Saiss 7
Just like most members of the backline, he made a few crucial blocks and interceptions in the game. Saiss played a very crucial part in Wolves taking home all three points.

Rayan Ait-Nouri 6

The left wing-back came really close to scoring but his shot just whistled past the post. Leicester tried to double up on him and created a few problems for the defender.

Leander Dendoncker 6

His passing was a bit off in the middle of the park. But he produced another tireless performance in the middle of the park.

Joao Moutinho 6

He looked really creative in midfield but was substituted at the hour mark when the manager decided to change formation.

Ruben Neves 8

Neves scored yet another goal from outside the box and did plenty of defending throughout the game.

Daniel Podence 7

His first touch was immaculate at times and scored the 2nd goal to hand Wolves the three points.

Raul Jimenez 6

Jimenez started the game in brilliant fashion but had a quiet game after that.
