Wolverhampton Wanderers enjoyed a 2-0 win over West Ham United on Wednesday evening and Adama Traore was one of many players to come away with praise from supporters on social media. The 23-year-old didn’t deliver a vintage performance, but he was an attacking threat before his substitution and played his part in the eventual outcome.
Traore created chances for his teammates and gave Aaron Cresswell a torrid time at left-back, frequently taking him on at Molineux. The wide-man contributed defensively too and helped turn over possession on a number of occasions. Fans were pleased with his overall contribution, even if he wasn’t at his best.
I could watch adama beat defenders all day.

MOTM Donk. Great response to Sun, composed on the ball & sound defensively. Back 3 as a unit spot on
What an all-round WB Jonny is turning into. Now thriving going forward & popping up everywhere!
Adama still caused havoc despite touch/decision making being slightly off. #wwfc

It was an absolute pleasure to watch Wolves play tonight. 1 or 2 hairy moments but you'd never have known it was the 3rd game in a week.
Also, I love watching players fall over themselves when Adama gets the ball.#wwfc #WOLWHU

Really played some nice stuff. Followed with some frustrating stuff. Mainly down the left again. The right side is potent. Adama 🔥 yet again. Nothing silly in the second half. 🐺 #wwfc

Brilliant win that is! Adama was outstanding again, buzzing for Cutrone to make such an impact! Cemented in 5th now, who said Europa League football would affect us? #wwfc

The rise of Adama Traore this season has been nothing short of remarkable. He showed glimpses last season but his maturity and quality has been amazing. What a player we have on our hands. Massive credit to Nuno 👏🏻 #wwfc
