Wolves missed the chance to apply real pressure on fourth-placed Chelsea over the weekend following their 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.
Nevertheless, Sunday afternoon was still a positive one for defender Max Kilman, while Wolves will still be pleased to have earned a point after going 1-0 down to Chris Wilder’s side.
The 22-year-old was making his first Premier League start for the Molineux outfit and did not disappoint.
In the Premier League encounter, according to WhoScored, Kilman managed to win an impressive seven aerial duels — more than any other player on the pitch.
Indeed, the Englishman justified Nuno Espirito Santo’s decision to bring him into the side and now looks a viable option, especially with Willy Boly out injured.
Wolves next take on a West Ham side who are coming off an impressive victory against Chelsea as they look to continue fighting for a European spot.
You can have a look at what Wolves fans had to say about Kilman’s recent inclusion below…
Kilman is a very worthy and capable stand in… Anyone saying otherwise has no idea
