Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were left lamenting a pair of misses from Nelson Semedo in their clash with Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Wolves came into the game without a point on the board, having lost each of their first three Premier League fixtures by a goal to nil.
Watford, meanwhile, were looking to return to winning ways on home turf after following-up their opening-day victory against Aston Villa with back-to-back defeats at Brighton and Spurs.
Recapping Semedo’s afternoon at Vicarage Road
Bruno Lage selected Semedo at right wing-back for the third consecutive match, with Marcal, who was superb, slotting in on the other side.
The Portuguese ace however had the chance to put the visitors ahead in first-half stoppage time after he was set through by right-winger Francisco Trincao, but he shot straight at Daniel Bachmann.
And then, just after the hour mark, he was in again, only to fire wide of the post.
Semedo also lost six of his ten ground duels, failed to complete a dribble and conceded possession 14 times in total, contributing to a team-low SofaScore rating of 6.2.
Mercifully for Wolves, an own-goal from Francisco Sierralta and a debut strike from Hwang Hee-chan were enough to earn their three points.
These Wolves fans bemoaned Semedo misses
“Remember when fans said Doherty wasn’t good enough after getting 15 goals/assists and now Semedo has missed another 1 on 1. We are actually cursed. How have we missed another”
“Semedo has robbed Raul of an absolute beauty of an assist”
“Semedo man you’re killing me rn”
“Semedo has to score, again”
“Why is it Semedo every time man, guy can’t finish”
“Semedo I just can’t man”
In other news, this ‘excellent’ ace has hinted at a desire to leave.
