Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have hailed the performance of Willy Boly in last night’s defeat to Liverpool.

The 24-year-old scored just before half-time on his first appearance back at Molineux since his big-money move last year.

The game was unfortunately overshadowed when Rui Patricio had to be stretchered off the pitch after an accidental collision with teammate Conor Coady.

Some fans paid tribute to him after his performance on social media:
