Wolves fans heaped praise on defender Romain Saiss despite their side’s 1-0 defeat against Manchester United on Tuesday night.
The 30-year-old started in a back three alongside captain Conor Coady and Max Kilman as the Black Country side came out second best at Old Trafford after a last-gasp winner from Marcus Rashford.
Despite this, the Molineux faithful found positives from the game as the versatile Moroccan put in an impressive display.
Per Whoscored, Saiss was given a match rating of 7.35, managing to get two shots on goal, making 12 clearances and accumulated a pass success rate of 89.7%.
Is Romain Saiss an automatic starter for Wolves?
With this in mind, supporters were delighted with his showing and many reflected on that despite the manner of the defeat.
