A number of Wolves fans have taken to Twitter to laud Willy Boly's performance after the centre-back put in a superb performance to help Nuno Espirito Santo's men knock Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

Wolves produced a stunning 2-1 win at Molineux against the Premier League leaders. Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves scored either side of half-time and of a Divock Origi strike to set up a fourth round tie with either Stoke City or Shrewsbury.

 

It was a superb performance from the home side, and a number of the fans felt that Boly was perhaps the best player on the pitch in the hugely impressive victory.

The centre-back made a number of interceptions and carried the ball out from the back brilliantly on a number of occasions. It was a display that suggested that the 27-year-old was back to his best.

Boly has been an exceptional signing for Wolves, both on loan during their promotion-winning campaign in the Championship last year and following his permanent move to the club in the summer.

Some on social media have suggested that the Frenchman is the best centre-back that they have ever seen at Wolves, while he was also likened to a Rolls Royce for the class that he showed against the Reds.
