Conor Coady was one of many players to impress for Wolverhampton Wanderers in Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool. Nuno Espirito Santo named the 26-year-old alongside Max Kilman and Ryan Bennett in a rotated backline – a decision that was vindicated by their performance at Anfield.

Kilman was praised by fans for a dominant showing at the back but Coady’s contribution can’t be ignored either. The former England u20 international turned over possession on a number of occasions and boasted the best pass completion ratio out of Wolves’ three central defenders.

Against Liverpool, Coady played for 90 minutes, made 45 touches, won one aerial duel, completed 70.6% of his 34 passes, made four clearances, created one chance, made two tackles, completed 46% of his 13 long balls and made two interceptions.

The 26-year-old has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, playing every minute of every Premier League and Europa League game (1800). Coady has been undroppable under Nuno and has played at the heart of a Wolves defence having conceded fewer goals (25) than Chelsea (28), Tottenham Hotspur (29) and Arsenal (30).

Is a top four finish a realistic target?
