Willy Boly needs a massive performance against Liverpool for Wolves

Wolves now have just one Premier League game remaining against Liverpool this season – and it’s potentially going to be an extremely hard match.

Wanderers drew their penultimate match of the season 1-1 with Norwich City today.

It was a very disappointing result, against a team that have already been relegated and have found the going tough all season.

The first-half performance was extremely poor, with the Canaries causing a lot of problems.

Teemu Pukki was a particular thorn, and it was the Finland international who opened the scoring for the visitors.

He scored in the 37th minute, and the goal had definitely been coming.

The first-half was a real struggle for the Wolves defence. And it was another worrying display from Willy Boly, who was starting his eighth game in a row.

The Ivorian did well on his first Premier League appearance of the season against Watford in the 4-0 win back in March.

But since then it’s been a downward trajectory. And today he could easily have been the man who went off at half-time instead of Coady.

But he played the full game, and really did have a tough outing.

And the £10 million star (BBC Sport) now finds himself in a position where he could really do with a massive performance against Liverpool. His Wolves future may well depend on it.

Willy Boly needs a colossal display at Anfield against Liverpool to potentially prevent Wolves sale

Since his return from injury, Boly has struggled to reach the level he was showing only a couple of years ago.

He is no longer dominating, and now really needs a big performance at Anfield.

There were reports earlier this year that the club would listen to offers for the defender.

That might well be the case heading into the summer window.

But if Boly can prove his worth, in perhaps Wolves’ toughest game of the season, it might just prolong his Wolves career.
