Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans believe Nelson Semedo has gone under the radar in recent games.

The wing-back has experienced an indifferent start to life at Molineux so far following his summer move from Barcelona.

The ace arrived with a big reputation, but also had some question marks over him regarding the defensive side of his game.

The 27-year-old has looked a little shaky in parts – the injury-time penalty he gave away against Aston Villa was not a great moment for the player.

Despite not really disproving the feelings about the defensive side of his game, Nuno Espirito Santo has shown huge faith in the Portugal international.

He’s played all but one game in the Premier League, with youngster Ki-Jana Hoever having to bide his time for regular opportunities as a result.

Recently, Semedo has found himself operating as a left wing-back.

Injuries to Rayan Ait-Nouri, Fernando Marcal and Romain Saiss have forced Nuno Espirito Santo to deploy Semedo on the opposite side in the last game-and-a-half.

The team have really been struggling as a collective, but Semedo has actually done quite well in recent weeks and especially in a position he isn’t used to.

His individual form has prompted praise from some Wolves fans on social media, with some believing he’s actually been going under the radar while the team have struggled as a collective.
