Wolverhampton Wanderers enjoyed a 1-0 win against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon and Willy Boly was one of many players to come away with praise for his performance. The 29-year-old limited Villa to only one shot on target in their own backyard while limiting Keinan Davis and Mbwanna Samatta to three efforts between them.

Which club did Wolves sign Raul Jimenez from?

Against Villa, Boly played for 90 minutes, made 41 touches, won four aerial duels, completed 81.3% of his 32 passes, attempted four long balls with 25% accuracy, blocked one shot, made one tackle, gave away four fouls and made four clearances.

The £13.05m-rated player has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring one goal and making one assist. He missed three months of the campaign with a fractured fibula but has returned better than ever, shoring up Wolves’ backline and helping to keep seven clean sheets in their last eight league games.

It’s worth noting that Wolves shut out just one club in their 15 league games without Boly, so a lacklustre Villa side didn’t stand a chance of breaching the backline. The win sees Wolves go fifth in the Premier League table with 52 points from 32 games.
