Wolves: Fans question Nuno’s team selection after draw with Burnley

Wolves are still waiting on their first Premier League win of the season but they just about managed to preserve their unbeaten status yesterday against Burnley after a 97th-minute Raul Jimenez penalty rescued a point for the home side at Molineux.

Ryan Leister, Wolves columnist for the Birmingham Mail, tweeted after the match (via @MrRyanLeister) that the team played badly and were “bullied” by their opponents, adding that manager Nuno Espirito Santo was culpable of some questionable team selection choices.

The Black Country side showed five changes from the team that started the 3-2 win against Torino last Thursday, with Matt Doherty, Ryan Bennett, Jonny, Morgan Gibbs-White and Ruben Neves all coming in while Adama Traore, Jesus Vallejo, Ruben Vinagre, Leander Dendoncker and Romain Saiss dropped out.

Just as the Clarets looked set for an away win, Erik Pieters conceded a last-gasp penalty which Jimenez converted to ensure that the points would be shared.

These Wolves fans on Twitter felt that Nuno got it wrong with his team selection and substitutions:
