Wolves showed real character last night to come from behind to beat Chelsea in the Premier League.

Nuno’s side were 2-1 winners at Molineux, with Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto scoring either side of Olivier Giroud for the Blues.

The hosts, going into the game off the back of two defeats, might well have struggled when the Frenchman put the visitors ahead.

But the brilliant Podence was on hand to fire home after impressively working space for himself in the box, and Neto took his goal amazingly well at the death.

The pair both put in fine performances and not for the first time this season.

They are grabbing a lot of the headlines this morning, but some Wolves fans have been moving to show their appreciation for someone who perhaps went under the radar a little bit.

£3 million man Romain Saiss (Express & Star) was back in the side as part of a back three having been warming the bench in recent weeks.

The Morocco international – preferred to Max Kilman – was solid at the back, and was also key in the build-up to Neto’s winner.

Saiss might have cleared his lines, but instead picked out Vitinha who moved the ball onto the 20-year-old who did the rest.

On social media, some Wolves fans have heaped praise on Saiss, with a few acknowledging his role in the goal:
