A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were sharing their delight at seeing Willy Boly back on the pitch as they took to Twitter to praise the defender.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side managed to keep fellow top-four challengers Manchester United to a goalless draw at Old Trafford on Saturday evening and managed to restore the six-point gap between the duo and Chelsea in the fight for fourth spot in the Premier League.
Indeed, Boly – who had been out of the side with injury since the end of October with an ankle injury (per Express and Star) – appeared to make an immediate difference to the Old Gold and helped to keep the hosts extremely quiet in the final third of the pitch.
According to data collected by WhoScored, the 28-year-old managed to make one tackle, a whopping five interceptions and four clearances whilst winning two aerial duels.
Fans, of course, were clearly delighted to have seen the French enforcer back on the pitch and in their colours and many took to Twitter to wax lyrical over his most recent performance for Wolves.
Some felt that he was quality and managed to slot straight back into the side despite missing a number of months worth of action, whilst others suggested that Boly being on the pitch was the highlight of the night.
Here are just some of their reactions…
Boly was sensational. First game back a clean sheet? Who'd have thought…

Just one Premier League clean sheet in 3 months without Boly.
Boly returns and we keep a clean sheet at the first time of asking.
