Wolves: Sa, Semedo and Jimenez struggle in defeat to Liverpool

Wolves: Sa, Semedo and Jimenez struggle in defeat to Liverpool -Wolves News

Jose Sa, Nelson Semedo and Raul Jimenez were all deemed to have struggled in Wolves’ heartbreaking 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

Bruno Lage’s side were so close to earning a third 0-0 draw in a row in the Premier League on Saturday, but ended up leaving Molineux with nothing.

Divock Origi’s stoppage-time winner sent Liverpool into raptures, as all of Wanderers’ admirable defensive work was undone.

According to Sofascore, these were Wolves’ three poorest performers on the day, out of players who were on the pitch for at least 45 minutes.

Jose Sa – 6.6

Sa has made an impressive start to life at Molineux and he was looking for another clean sheet in the league. It looked as though that would be the case until Origi squeezed a last-gasp finish past him.

Only 43% of the Portuguese’s passes were accurate ones against the Reds – 12 out of 28 – which arguably played a part in Liverpool dominating possession so much.

Sa also made one error that led to a shot and only played four out of 20 accurate long balls.

Nelson Semedo – 6.2

Semedo was given his usual right wing-back role on Saturday but he failed to have a big enough impact on proceedings.

The 28-year-old was given a tough afternoon by the likes of Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane, winning just two out of eight ground duels.

In an attacking sense, Semedo didn’t play a key pass throughout the game and lost possession a whopping 21 times (the most of any player), while defensively, he failed to make a single tackle.

Raul Jimenez – 6.3

Jimenez led the line against Jurgen Klopp’s side but had very little luck against Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, as Liverpool saw most of the ball.

The Mexican didn’t manage a single successful dribble, failing with his two attempted ones, and managed no shots at all.

Jimenez also lost possession 17 times overall, won two of his nine ground duels and no aerial duels out of three, on a forgettable afternoon for him.
