Jamie Carragher may have forgotten about Wolves duo, as he makes Adam Webster claim on Twitter

Jamie Carragher was among those watching Brighton take on Chelsea last night.

Graham Potter and Thomas Tuchel’s sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium.

The draw sees the Seagulls get to within two points of Wolves in the Premier League table.

It was Adam Webster who got the goal for the home side, who had gone 1-0 down to a Hakim Ziyech goal.

The defender scored a thumping header from a corner, and the star came in for plaudits afterwards for his overall performance.

One of the best parts of his game last night was his passing out from the back. He completed 45/54 (83%) of his passes according to Sofascore.

His manager Graham Potter hailed him afterwards (Sky Sports News), and Jamie Carragher made a rather big claim about Webster on Twitter.

The Sky Sports pundit wrote: “Adam Webster’s passing out from the back, with both feet is better than any other English central defender.”

That is a pretty bold statement from the former Liverpool, and some Wolves supporters were challenging that opinion.

That’s because Wolves currently possess two absolutely phenomenal distributors. And they are both English.

Conor Coady and Max Kilman have obviously been superb for Wolves defensively.

But the pair have been just as impressive in the way they build from the back.

Coady has always been known for his passing attributes. And Max Kilman is a former futsal player, as Wolves fans like to be reminded almost every time he plays.

Kilman now operates on the right, meaning he is required to use his weaker right foot quite a lot. But he is very comfortable using it.

Coady is able to use his strong right foot much more often due to him being in the middle. But he is still super comfortable on his weaker left.

Coady and Kilman are at least as good as Webster

Carragher may genuinely believe no one betters Webster for passing.

The claim does feel slight reactionary though.

According to WhoScored data, Coady (88%) and Kilman (87%) both have higher passing accuracy than Webster this season (83%).

Quite a few Arsenal fans replied to Carragher saying Ben White was better. But like, Webster, he also has an accuracy of 83% this term.

Wolves have generally gone under the radar this season, and it seems the same may have happened here.
