Bruno Lage had praise for four of his defenders after he watched his Wolves side thrash Watford 4-0 at Molineux.

Willy Boly made his first Premier League appearance of the season, with Max Kilman dropped to the bench.

Lage explained he wanted to give Kilman a rest but as per the club website there was also praise for Boly’s performance.

“I’m very happy with Boly and Jonny, he’s working hard, he played very well,” said Lage.

“Rayan [Ait-Nouri] and Marcal are also in a good moment, and Boly came back. I know he’s a very good player, he’s important player for us, and let’s see.

“After a good performance, for him, I think Boly is back. Now, understand the way he plays, the way he recovers, that’s the most important thing.”

Lage now has options available to him, and he was able to shuffle his pack last night in the wake of the abject loss against Crystal Palace.

That allows him to bring in experienced players of the quality of Jonny and Boly, who were stalwarts of Nuno Espirito Santo’s success.

And that has generated momentum around the club again, going into the trip to Goodison Park to face an Everton side in relegation danger.
