Wolverhampton Wanderers impressed against Manchester United on Saturday.
Wolverhampton Wanderers thoroughly deserved their point on the road against Manchester United on Saturday, as they secured a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side continued an impressive start to the season by taking points off another top-six club and weren’t downbeat after conceding to a first-half Fred goal.
The West Midlands club struck back after half-time through midfielder Joao Moutinho and they proved they can compete in the top flight against the best.
There were a number of threatening attacks going forward for Wolves that caught the eye, but perhaps the most impressive aspect was the defence.
Wolves limited a star-studded Man United team to few goalscoring chances and have become very organised under Nuno’s management.
The 27-year-old Wolves colossus dealt perfectly with Lukaku - who earns £250,000-a-week, according to spotrac.com - and barely gave him an inch to threaten the goal
He made one last-ditch interception in the penalty area to prevent the centre-forward from a glorious chance in front of goal and his positioning was spot on at Old Trafford.
Boly certainly proved his value by dealing with a top-class striker at the weekend and that should give him a major confidence boost moving forward.
