Home Wolves News Wolves: Fans blast Fabio Silva efficiency after Everton defeat By Nathan Linley Published on January 13, 2021

Many Wolves fans were heavily crucial towards striker Fabio Silva after his side’s 2-1 defeat to Everton on Tuesday night.

The 18-year-old has been underwhelming since his summer season relocation from FC Porto, mainly due to his ₤ 35.6 m price tag (via BBC Sport), which of course left fans expecting more than what he has used up until now.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have actually now won just once in their last eight Premier League video games and are desperately missing the presence of Raul Jimenez upfront, scoring simply 8 goals throughout that timeframe (Fotmob).

The Portuguese tactician has been playing Silva in the hope that he can discover some of the trigger that his Mexican colleague has always provided in abundance. Once again, he didn’t provide much motivation for his team on Tuesday.

Per Sofascore, Silva won just one battle, had one less touch throughout the entire video game than goalkeeper Rui Patricio, only had one shot on target and accumulated a pass success rate of just 69% – 9 passes.

Versus a fellow Europe-chasing side, it is naturally a huge frustration to see a winger who is on the pitch to score and produce goals get on the ball less frequently than the side’s goalkeeper, who would have hoped for a quiet night.

Should Fabio Silva be secured of the Wolves’ firing line? Yes Vote No Vote

Unsurprisingly, fans are starting to run out of perseverance for Silva with some recommending that Nuno should take him out of the team for the time being.

” Silva isn’t prepared and recalling Cutrone & Gibbs White isn’t adequate to attend to the lack of objectives. I can’t see where objectives are going to originate from. Saturday is a must-win #wwfc”
