Dean Sounders believes Matt Doherty could struggle in the Premier League next season, given teams will eventually nullify his attacking threat. The Republic of Ireland international has been a dominating figure for Wolverhampton Wanderers from the right wing-back position this term, and he has contributed six goals and six assists across all competitions for the club.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Sounders acknowledged that Doherty has enjoyed an impressive season with the west Midlands side in the Premier League but the same success may not be replicated next term whereby teams will have an idea regarding his movements on the playing field, he said: "You don't expect Matt Doherty to be getting on the end of crosses and causing as much damage as he has done at right wing-back. So when you play him against next year and you have been stung by him. Teams go well, 'we've got an idea of what they are going to do now'"
