Many Wolves fans are absolutely raging on Twitter after seeing a compilation video of Adama Traore getting fouled on the weekend.
Many fans were livid after the game as the Spaniard was brought down in a number of times in a particularly brutal fashion, with the right-winger being able to draw three yellow cards from Spurs players.
Firstly, the forward managed to beat Toby Alderweireld to a ball before being hacked on his right touchline. The next came from Eric Dier, who could only foul the player by stretching his leg as far as he could to bring him down, without even an attempt to reach the ball. And finally Harry Kane simply wouldn’t let the player get a yard on him so he put in a challenge that would probably look more appropriate on the rugby field.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Norwich City?
The Twitter page @WeLoveWolves shared the video, to which many fans responded rather hastily. Here are some of the responses below…
if this was Liverpool, Man City, Man U their players would be surrounding the ref trying to get the defender sent off. Can’t believe Spurs got away with these fouls quite lightly. Ref was too soft.

Everyone of those attacks could of been stopped with a simple trip. Not one of them needed to try snap his leg. There’s Synical/professional foul and there’s plain dirty. Huge difference.

The difference between Moura and Traore fouls were, Moura was quickest in 50/50 challenges where Traore was just blatantly taken out when he could have been clean through to create a good chance…

Traore once again rose like cream throughout the match, not being halted by the numerous fouls that he won. Furthermore, he was able to score an absolute peach to earn him WhoScored’s Man of the Match award, despite turning out to be 2-1 losers.
That was his third goal of the season; a season which has been terrific both individually for Traore and for his team. According to WhoScored, he has an average match rating of 7.54/10 – comprehensively the highest in Wolves’ squad.
The club now face Norwich City away from home before two of their toughest games of the season against Manchester City and Liverpool.
