Wolves have drawn 0-0 with Chelsea in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side reverted to a back five against the Blues, and produced a solid defensive performance at Stamford Bridge to deny Thomas Tuchel a victory in his first game.
Chelsea dominated the ball, but for all their possession they only created a couple of clear-cut chances to trouble Rui Patricio.
Wolves looked assured in their more familar system, but unfortunately chances were very few and far between.
Pedro Neto was perhaps the liveliest Wolves player, and had a golden chance to score in the second half but scooped his effort onto the crossbar.
That was about it for chances for the visitors, who did not deserve to take all three points.
But Nuno will certainly take a first clean sheet in the league since October.
One man who definitely contributed to Chelsea’s frustration was Max Kilman.
The 23-year-old was preferred to Romain Saiss in the backline, and absolutely justified his selection.
While the star wasn’t the tidiest in possession, he dominated aerially and produced plenty of blocks along with Willy Boly and Conor Coady. He also made six clearances according to Sofascore, as well as two interceptions.
Wolves fans made sure to praise the star for his efforts on social media:

Not much of a spectacle, but nice to see us look a bit more organised. Thought Kilman was outstanding. #WWFC 🐺
