Wolverhampton Wanderers have lost 4-0 to Burnley at Molineux in the Premier League, in what was arguably their worst performance all season.

It was a shambolic performance from the home side, who were second best all over the park against the Clarets.

A Chris Wood hat-trick and an Ashley Westwood strike were their undoing, and all four goals were entirely preventable.

It was a hugely disappointing day, for a team that were looking to record three straight wins for the first time this season.

From the first whistle Burnley were at it, and Wolves never ever got going.


There was so much lethargy, and not one player can lay claim to having even a half-decent performance.

One man who was seriously off the pace was Willy Boly.

The Ivorian, usually so reliable, was sluggish and indecisive, and he and Conor Coady were at fault for the first goal.

BBC pundit Alex Scott slammed Wolves and the £10 million defender (BBC Sport) at half-time, saying: “It’s absolutely embarrassing.

“I just can’t believe it. Boly, it’s like you’ve not even got off the team bus at the moment.

“He’s been sloppy. He’s not been the only one. (Adama) Traore, when you think about the heart monitors, I don’t think any Wolves players have made a sprint in this game.”
