Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in Wednesday’s FA Cup third-round replay and Conor Coady was one of many players criticised for his performance.

The 26-year-old made an error that led to United’s winning goal from Juan Mata in the 67th minute. He first misjudged the bounce of the ball, leading to Anthony Martial spinning him and being free to put Mata through on goal. Coady was then unable to chase the Spaniard back before he scored.

Wolves’ winless run extended to five games after the FA Cup exit – 1-0 defeat to Liverpool (December 29, 2019), 2-1 defeat to Watford (January 1, 2020), 0-0 draw with Man Utd (January 4), 1-1 draw with Newcastle United (January 11) – and fans are starting to lose their patience with the errors costing them results.

Against the Red Devils, Coady played for 90 minutes, had 48 touches, won one aerial duel, made one tackle, completed 89.1% of his 46 passes and made one interception. He’s played every minute of every Premier League (1980), Europa League (1080) and FA Cup game (180) this season and may need a rest.

Wolves have no time to lick their wounds, however, as they’ll travel to face Southampton on Saturday and desperately need a win.
