Wolves Player Ratings: A Day of Very Little Positives

Jose Sa 4/10 – Very poor distribution throughout the game and offer little in the way of good one-on-one displays against the Brighton attackers

Craig Dawson 3/10 – Made the defensive error that led to Mitoma’s goal and his awareness was all over the place this afternoon

Nelson Semedo 4/10 – Spotted out of position on numerous occasions and this allowed Mitoma to get the upper hand throughout the afternoon

Max Kilman 4/10 – One of the best defensive displays from a Wolves player this afternoon but it was nowhere near to get anything out of the game

Rayan Ait-Nouri 3/10 – Despite a mediocre display, he was constantly threatened by the pace of Brighton and he was beaten to easily on a couple of occasions

Mariel Lemina 5/10 – A mixed afternoon with some decent tackles and reckless ones as well. He was guilty of being dispossessed too easily in the middle of the park

Matheus Nunes 2/10 – Very poor decision making in the final third led to Wolves giving away good attacking opportunities but he was able to provide a decent performance

Joao Gomes 3/10 – Inability to challenge Brighton on a physical level led to the Seagulls taking advantage of possession whenever possible

Pedro Neto 6/10 – Wolves were able to make decent offensive threats through Pedro and his runs were able to cause Brighton some problems. However, the final ball was once again the letdown factor

Matheus Cunha 7/10 – One of the best players for the Wolves this afternoon as he was able to produce a strong workrate even when the rest of the team was not on song

Fabio Silva 5/10 – Even though he found himself in decent positions, he was let down by the rest of the team being quite poor for most of the afternoon. Silva did miss a big opportunity in the first half


Hwang Hee-chan 7/10 – A big impact as a substitute came from Hwang Hee-chan as he was able to get the team’s only goal of the game in the 61st minute

Pablo Sarabia 4/10 – Did not do much better than Joao Gomes

Toti 4/10 – Limited impact after coming on for Dawson

Hugo Bueno 5/10 – Not much time to make a huge impact after coming on late in the game

Wolves vs Brighton Match Summary and Highlights

In a match which saw both teams weakened by the departure of best players in the summer, it was Brighton who came out decisively on top with a big 4-1 victory. Brighton were slick and impressive throughout the game. Wolves simply could not match up with the Seagulls and they were second best in almost every area of the pitch.

Even though there are some vital saves from Brighton when the score was just 1-0, the Seagulls took off after the half on a mark. Wolves were only able to get a consolation in the second half. The day got worse for the Midlands outfit with a sending off in injury time.

Man of the Match: Solly March

Solly March produced a solid performance that saw him grab two goals in the span of just four second-half minutes. In front of the watching England manager Gareth Southgate, Solly March provided a strong case for his inclusion in the next England squad.
