Wolves: Saiss, Dendoncker and Traore struggle v Leeds

Wolves: Saiss, Dendoncker and Traore struggle v Leeds -Premier League

Romain Saiss, Leander Dendoncker and Adama Traore all struggled in Wolves’ 1-1 draw away to Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.

Bruno Lage’s side made the trip to Elland Road in search of a fourth consecutive Premier League, eventually coming agonisingly close to achieving that mission.

Hwang Hee-chan’s early strike looked set to have earned Wolves another big win, only for Rodrigo to equalise from the penalty spot in the dying seconds.

Here are three players who had disappointing days at the office for the Midlanders.

Romain Saiss

Saiss was deemed Wolves’ second-worst player by Sofascore, with his 6.4 rating summing up an average showing.

He completed just 66% of his passes against Leeds and failed to win a single one of his four ground duels, summing up his struggles. The Moroccan was also dribbled past once and lost the ball 13 times.

Leander Dendoncker

The Belgian got the lowest Sofascore rating among Lage’s starting XI (6.0), failing to fully convince in the middle of the park.

The 26-year-old completed 78% of his passes but didn’t win a tackle in the whole game, despite playing in a busy area of the pitch, and he made one error which led to a shot for Leeds. He was also dribbled past twice, lost possession 11 times and won just one of his five duels.

Dendoncker will certainly have better games than his one at Elland Road.

Adama Traore

Traore is always an exciting player to watch, but as is too often the case with him, there wasn’t enough substance to his game at Elland Road.

The Spaniard lost possession 14 times and did not have a single shot or successful dribble. Most alarmingly, he only completed 44% of his passes, highlighting his wastefulness.

In other news, a Wolves transfer could still happen, according to one report. Read more here.
