Wolverhampton Wanderers’ current run of form in the Premier League campaign of 2018/19 is well known by everyone, prior to the Chelsea game yesterday evening, our form over the last five and a bit matches has been the worst experienced under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo since he arrived at the club.
Cardiff City last Friday evening was a particular low point.
Few fans had high expectations as we welcomed Maurizio Sarri’s side to the Molineux but they were in for a bit of a surprise after we fell behind to an 18th-minute effort from Rueben Loftus-Cheek.
Second half, the players more found their usual groove and we battled back to take a 2-1 victory following goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.
Statistics website Whoscored gave our Man of the Match to Matt Doherty for his 7.97 rated efforts once again.
The top five were completed by Morgan Gibbs-White, Jimenez, Willy Boly and Ryan Bennett and as Santo said post-game “this doesn’t mean all the problems are solved”, but it certainly shows the overreaction was unwarranted as fans need to remember we’ll have ups and downs as a newly promoted side – it’s a fact of life.
