With improving Premier League form and results for Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the November international break, many wondered if the timing would work further in our favour or count against momentum, and a clash again Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday was always going to be a tricky affair.
Suffice to say, whilst we weren’t at our best, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo saw his side pick up another win and a valuable three points following a pretty explosive start to the game that saw Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez on the scoresheet before we were 32 minutes into the game.
A sending off for the hosts, didn’t stop them from getting a consolation but we did hold on for the points to move into fifth place.
Statistics website Whoscored had mixed ratings after that but Moutinho was their star man with a score of 8.34.
Following him quickly in second place was Adama Traore (8.12), and the top five best performers on the day were completed by Jimenez (7.76), Diogo Jota (7.36) and Jonny Otto (6.91).
Was Moutinho The Man Again?
