With plenty of Premier League improvements in recent times for Wolverhampton Wanderers, those fans who weren’t happy with our EFL Cup decisions were looking for a line to be drawn as we welcomed Aston Villa to Molineux earlier today.
We largely did that with our 2-1 victory following goals from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez, and the only real disappointment (if you could call it a disappointment) was that we didn’t significantly improve our goal difference as the margin of victory should’ve been larger.
Statistics website Whoscored seriously lauded the performances of some players given the player ratings that were handed out.
Adama Traore took their star man award with a score of 9.10 as he terrorised the left hand side of his former employers, and completing the top five on the day were Raul Jimenez (8.47), Ruben Neves (8.09), Joao Moutinho (7.58) and Matt Doherty (7.14).
Leander Dendoncker also scored a seven plus for his showing.
