Brighton 3 Wolves 3 – Player ratings

After Wolves drew 3-3 with Brighton, Liam Keen rates the players on their performance.

Rui Patricio - 6

The goalkeeper was not helped by his defence for all three of Brighton’s goals, but none of them can go down as his errors. Despite that, conceding three is not a good day at the office for any goalkeeper.

Nelson Semedo - 6

The full-back linked up with Traore well, at times, but looked shaky in defence in the second half.

Conor Coady - 7

Coady looked relatively comfortable throughout the game, even with backs-against-the-wall defending in the second half.

Romain Saiss - 8

Saiss took his goal well and has made the centre-back position his own this season. He looks far more assured these days.

Rayan Ait-Nouri - 5

The youngster seemed to be holding back when on the attack and in defence he never looked secure. He let Trossard cross too easily for the first goal.

Joao Moutinho - 5

For a player so experienced, Moutinho was exceptionally foolish to give away that early second half penalty. He was overran in midfield for most of the afternoon and was unable to pick his passes. A player of his quality expects more.

Ruben Neves - 7

Neves took his penalty confidently and played a superb cross-field ball in the build-up to the second goal. Although overran in midfield, he was far more involved in the positive moments for Wolves.

Adama Traore - 7

Traore showed glimpses of his old self against Brighton, particularly in the first half. Burn was struggling to deal with him – he was impressive. In the second half he had flashes of brilliance but was quieter as Brighton dominated.

Vitinha - 4

The midfielder was full of energy and tried, but it did not pay off. Fans would be forgiven for forgetting he was playing at times. Largely anonymous in attacking areas and not a force in midfield where Wolves needed an extra body.

Pedro Neto - 5

For a player of his quality supporters expect perfect performances but for Neto it did not come off. He did well in the build-up to the second goal but overall he was off the pace. He looked tired.

Fabio Silva - 5

An undoubted talent but Silva was starved of service against Brighton. He cut a frustrated figure as his team-mates failed to give him the ball anywhere on the pitch and particularly in attacking areas.
