Wolves came away with a point from the home game against Southampton, and the performance of new signing Nelson Semedo in the 1-1 draw did not please some of the club’s supporters.
The Midlands outfit actually went 1-0 down when Theo Walcott opened the scoring. Fortunately for Nuno Espirito Santo and co, Pedro Neto netted the equaliser to earn his side a point. The draw saw Wolves move back into the top ten of the Premier League table.
From a stats point of view, it appeared the £31.5m-valued Portugal international (Transfermarkt) handled himself well. He won nine of his 13 duels, and also completed three of his five attempted duels. However, it was his ball-watching that allowed Walcott to swoop in and score for the Saints. Given that they spent €30m (£27.61m) on his services, he must do better than that.
Should Semedo be dropped against Arsenal?
The Wolves supporters were not afraid to share their thoughts on his display, and they took to social media platform Twitter to do so.

Semedo btw. I disliked the signing at the time, but my word he’s managed to be worse than even I could imagine.

Yes mate defo. But £37m for semedo?! I kinda gave him benefit of the doubt before tonight but that was a shocker. Take away switching off for the goal, he was terrible defending and going forward. I’d give his performance a 3 at best.
