‘Something else’: Wolves fans hail goalkeeper Rui Patricio

Goalkeeper Rui Patricio helped Wolverhampton Wanderers overcome Crystal Palace on Saturday – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter were blown away by his performance.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side recorded a 1-0 win away at Palace in the Premier League, something that saw them climb to seventh in the table.

Wolves defender Matt Doherty scored the winning goal in the second-half with a strike from a tight angle.

The result means the West Midlands club will be buoyed going into the international break and it’s been a dream return to the top flight for them since winning the Championship last season.

Summer signing Patricio has been one of the standout players at Molineux this season and he’s adapted very quickly to English football.

The 30-year-old is an experienced shot-stopper and he’s now kept four clean sheets in his last five Premier League appearances.

Wolves’ fierce defence is playing an important part in their success at the beginning of the season and they are extremely tough to break down when they have an in-form Portugal international in-between the sticks.

A selection of Wolves fans on social media raved about Patricio for his latest heroics, which included a brilliant double save to deny Palace.

Here is some of the reaction to the goalkeeper’s display:
