Wolves: Max Kilman was shocking in Leicester defeat

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ woeful start to the Premier League season continued on Sunday afternoon as they were thrashed 4-0 by Leicester City at Molineux.

Steve Davis’ side now sit second-bottom of the top flight and are only ahead of Nottingham Forest on goal difference, with their troubles in front of goal prevalent once again against the Foxes.

Despite having 21 shots to the visitors’ five, Wolves were comprehensively beaten by Brendan Rodgers’ side, who had previously sat in the bottom three without an away win.

Youri Tielemans’ screamer got the Foxes on their way before Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy compounded Wolves’ misery and with no new manager expected to arrive until 2023, it is difficult to see how things will improve for the Old Gold.

While there were a number of poor performances from Davis’ side on Sunday, there were perhaps none as disappointing as Max Kilman.

As per Sofascore, the centre-back would earn a shocking 6.0 rating for his display, which was the worst of any outfield player to feature in the game from both sides.

Kilman’s passing throughout the game was far from good enough, as he lost possession a remarkable 18 times during the 90 minutes. By comparison, centre-back partner Nathan Collins would lose possession just five times, whereas Leicester’s centre-back duo would lose possession just 13 times between them.

While the 25-year-old lightweight couldn’t do much about Tielemans’ wonder goal or Barnes’ well-worked second, he failed to get close to Maddison as he fired in the third, while it was his poor pass that led to Vardy’s tap-in.

This wasn’t the only time he was guilty of a shocking forward pass, as Express and Star journalist Liam Keen noted on Twitter, writing:

“Kilman very fortunate with a horrendous attempt at a cross-field pass. Leicester break forward and Maddison shoots wide.”

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

Considering that Conor Coady helped Everton to another clean sheet in their win over Crystal Palace yesterday, the decision to have Collins and Kilman as a centre-back partnership may end up costing Wolves, as it seems clear now that they are in a relegation battle this season.
