A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on their side's 1-1 Premier League draw with Southampton at Molineux and one player who came under a lot of scrutiny was Jesus Vallejo.

The £9million-rated (Transfermarkt) Real Madrid loanee came on as a substitute for Ryan Bennett after the 29-year-old's first Premier League start since the 3-2 defeat to Everton on 1 September lasted little more than quarter of an hour due to injury.

 

 

Vallejo simply did not look up to speed, looking very nervy at the back and making several bad passes which got his teammates into trouble, including being at fault for the initial error which Conor Coady subsequently midjudged and led to Danny Ings' opener.

The fan reaction to the Spaniard's display was pretty scathing, with some of the comments below:

It was a frustrating day for Wolves as Raul Jimenez thought he had put the hosts ahead midway through the first period when he rounded Angus Gunn before scoring into an empty net, but the video assistant referee ruled it out for handball.

Jimenez then finished from close range as half-time approached, but Patrick Cutrone was judged to have been offside in the build-up to the goal, and then Ings put Southampton ahead soon after the break.

Luckily for Nuno Espirito Santo's side, the visitors' lead lasted only eight minutes as Jimenez equalised from the penalty spot at Molineux, putting them 12th in the Premier League table ahead of Thursday's trip to Slovakia for their Europa League tie against Slovan Bratislava and subsequent Sunday trip to Newcastle United.
