Wolves: Liam Keen issues worrying Nelson Semedo injury update

Wolves: Liam Keen issues worrying Nelson Semedo injury update -Premier League

Wolves will assess how serious Nelson Semedo’s hamstring injury is after missing the 1-0 defeat to West Ham, according to reliable journalist Liam Keen.

The Lowdown: Wolves beaten again

Bruno Lage’s side faced another key Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon, with victory crucial in their battle to secure a top-four finish this season.

Unfortunately, Wolves suffered a second defeat in London in the space of four days, with Tomas Soucek’s goal proving to be the difference between the two teams.

It was a tired-looking performance from Wanderers, whose Champions League hopes have now taken a massive hit following successive defeats to positional rivals in Arsenal and West Ham.

Will Wolves qualify for the Champions League this season?

The Latest: Semedo suffers injury

Semedo was unavailable for the game at the London Stadium, having picked up a hamstring problem in last Thursday’s 2-1 loss away to Arsenal.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Keen claimed that Wolves are still waiting to find out the severity of the issue, stating: “Bruno Lage confirms Nelson Semedo has suffered a hamstring injury (from Thursday). Says they are still assessing how serious it is.”

The Verdict: Bad week for Wanderers

Things were looking so bright for Wolves this time last week but the brutal nature of football means that the current outlook is now rather different. A top-four finish looks highly unlikely and it is vital that Lage and his players remain level-headed and focused on securing European football of some kind.

A bad week has been made even worse by this update on Semedo, who will be a big miss if he is absent for several weeks. He rates highly in Lage’s squad for tackles (2.3) and clearances (2.2) per game, illustrating his no-nonsense defensive nature.

Also, him being sidelined leaves just Ki-Jana Hoever as a natural right-back option, so it’s not as if the Old Gold are blessed with depth in that area. The wait to find out how badly Semedo is hurt could be a nervy one for the Molineux faithful.
