Unsung Hero: Wolves’ Willy Boly gave an excellent defensive performance in 3-0 win over Everton

Unsung Hero: Wolves’ Willy Boly gave an excellent defensive performance in 3-0 win over Everton - Wolves News

Wolverhampton Wanderers came out as rather comfortable 3-0 winners in the Premier League against Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton yesterday thanks to goals from Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker either side of half-time before Diogo Jota sealed the win later on in the second half.

Despite the gorgeous attacking play at times as Wolves recorded 14 shots and had 55% possession, it was perhaps the display of Willy Boly at the back that went somewhat unnoticed, as he helped his side massively by making sure that the back door was locked for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.

Who is Wolves' PL top goal scorer?

The central defender won all six of his duels, while also making four interceptions, three clearances and three tackles, according to Sofascore.

Boly was not just a calming influence at the heart of the defence however, as he also managed to record an 88% passing success rate and play one key pass, which highlighted his qualities at starting off the attacking play.

Was Boly an unsung hero for Wolves v Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 29-year old has been a big part as to why Nuno’s team have conceded just 37 goals in the Premier League so far, with only Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester City, Manchester United and Sheffield United conceding fewer (via the Premier League website).

Boly has played in 19 games in the top flight so far in the 2019/20 season and Wolves have only conceded 12 times and kept a rather impressive 11 clean sheets in those matches, as per Transfermarkt.

The Frenchman was an unsung hero not just against the Toffees but perhaps throughout the entire season for Wolves.

Wolves fans, does Boly get the credit that he deserves? Comment below with your views!
