Lots of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have responded to a tweet discussing a statistic about Adama Traore.
Popular Wolves writer from the Athletic Tim Spiers tweeted a statistic from Squawka which showed that Traore had completed more successful take-ons versus Watford than anyone else in any other Premier League game since Opta began collecting such data from the 2006/07 season.
Despite this impressive stat, Wolves still came out as losers against Watford at Vicarage Road after goals from Gerard Deulofeu and Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Pedro Neto grabbed the only goal of the game for Wanderers and even a red card for Christian Kabasele with 20 minutes to go wasn’t enough to spur Wolves on and grab that all-important equaliser.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Manchester United?
Spiers tweeted about the new information, calling it an ‘insane statistic’, to which many fans replied with their opinion – mostly bigging up the talent of the young Spaniard.
Here are some of the replies below…
Teams are starting to double/treble up on him and it is working sometimes. I’d like to see him switch flanks once in a while or drop in the hole to keep teams guessing

The raw talent was always clearly there. But now? Oh wow! What a man! Puts fear into every defence.

Still think he needs better crosses, or just drive into the box and draw the Foul, still those are mad stats

Barcelona will come back for him so enjoy him whilst we’ve got him!

That moment in the first half when he had 5 players around him and still managed to get a pass away shows how much Watford respected him. He was always a threat today.

According to WhoScored, Traore was still the man of the match despite his side losing 2-1 to a team at the other end of the table to them.
