GoalKeeper: Jose Sa(Wolverhampton)
Emiliano Martínez would’ve made my team for his performance against Manchester United but José Sa impressed more for Wolverhampton against Southampton.The Portuguese had a shaky moment earlier in the game firing the ball straight to the feet of Oriol Romeu, but redeemed himself with a strong performance in the second-half. He made an excellent double save to deny both Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams in the second half and also reacted quickly to put Tino Livramento’s near-post effort behind out for a corner, before capping his afternoon with a long ball over the top for Raul Jimenez to score first goal in almost a year, following his horrific head injury suffered last October.
