Wolverhampton Wanderers fell to their first Premier League defeat of the season against Everton on Sunday.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were beaten 3-2 at Goodison Park, with a late Richarlison goal stealing the points for the hosts.
The result means Wolves are still yet to actually record a win in the league, and they sit 17th after four games.
It was a frantic game and Wolves struggled in the defensive phase, with Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Ryan Bennett all looking shaky for the visitors.
One man who also had a tough afternoon was Ruben Vinagre at left wing-back.
The 20-year-old was given the nod ahead of the more experienced Jonny Otto, but the Portuguese youngster had a poor game.
Many fans were dismayed by his tendency to bomb forwards, as it appeared to come at the expense of his defensive responsibilities.
Wolves fans react
Few Wolves players came in for credit online after the game from fans, but Vinagre appeared to receive most of the criticism.
It is fair to say a lot of fans were unconvinced by him, and many were calling for Espirito Santo to recall Jonny, who had a brilliant 2018/19, to the starting XI after the international break:
Vinagre’s gonna be a star but he has so much to do defensively, Boly keeps getting dragged further up because usually Jonny’s stopping it there

Should have taken Vinagre and Dendoncker off. Baffled why he took Saiss off.

Vinagre has been awful today. Awful. Should have played Jonny

Vinagre and Bennett were horrific today.

Such a busy schedule has finally taken its toll. Poor start to the premier league but excellent in europe. We cant have it all right now. Weakened side proved a disaster today. Vinagre isn’t ready and neither is Cutrone. Boly will be a massive miss. We rest and we go again! ?

I don’t think you can play Vinagre and Traore in the same starting 11. Exposes the back 3 too much

Well that was poor. Coady awful, don’t know why Vinagre was on the pitch second half. Not convinced by Cutrone either.
No real game plan? Hoofed it half the time #wwfc

Pretty poor today, defensively a mess but on a positive showed great fight to get back into the game. Vinagre was dreadful we missed Moutinho loads. #wwfc
