Conor Coady came in for a lot of criticism after Wolverhampton Wanderers lost 2-1 to Liverpool on Thursday, but Matt Doherty was also slated by supporters for his performance.

The 28-year-old was dominant in the air and managed to get forward on a number of occasions, but he didn’t lay a finger on Liverpool and left his centre-backs exposed at times.

As per WhoScored, Doherty played for 90 minutes, made 71 touches, won six aerial duels, completed 75.5% of his 49 passes, had one shot, whipped in one cross, made two clearances, blocked one shot and had two successful dribbles.

The right-back failed to make a tackle, failed to create a chance and failed to make an interception, however. Doherty has been a terrific servant for Wolves, making 283 appearances in all competitions since his move from Bohemians in 2010, but some fans have been suggesting that an upgrade may be needed.

Nevertheless, he’s been a regular under Nuno Espirito Santo this season, making 31 appearances across the board, so he still has the backing of his manager.

Where will Wolverhampton Wanderers finish in the Premier League?
