Wolverhampton Wanderers may have beaten Southampton on Saturday, but a number of players underperformed and were criticised by supporters on social media. Leander Dendoncker was one of many who struggled at St Mary’s and was culpable for both goals Southampton scored over the weekend.

Jan Bednarek broke the deadlock for the Saints in the 15th minute after Dendoncker failed to clear a free-kick from James Ward-Prowse. Their second goal came from Shane Long who beat the Belgian international to a header at the near post.

Many fans weren’t happy with his performance on the day and believe he should be replaced by Willy Boly when the centre-back returns from injury.

Against Southampton, Dendoncker played for 90 minutes, made 60 touches, won six aerial duels, made three tackles, completed 83.8% of his 37 passes, made two interceptions, blocked one shot, made seven clearances, drew one foul and made four successful dribbles.

The 24-year-old has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring four goals. Dendoncker has played in every Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup game for Wolves, but his spot in the side may be at risk when Boly is back in action.

Who would you have in the team when Boly is back?
