Wolverhampton Wanderers’ picked up our first three points of the Premier League campaign as we travelled to the London Stadium to face West Ham United at the weekend.
We more than deserved all three points and the victory following the performance we put in and the chances we fashioned across the game, but it looked like our reward wouldn’t come until we entered stoppage time and Adama Traore ingratiated himself with the fans further by scoring the late winner three minutes into added time.
The strike also puts him in our history books as it was our first ever 90+ minute match winning goal in the Premier League.
The win had certainly been coming as we continued adjusting to the top-flight and fingers crossed it will be the first of many more to come as the confidence shot the team would’ve gained should be massive.
Loved Traore's celebration. Straight over to the squad. The team. The staff. The boss.
All in. ????????
Together we are stronger #wwfc

I take it all back. Wasn’t sure we needed traore when we had costa, jota & cav, but whereas jota an costa have struggled to adapt to the prem traore has taken it by storm. Love how positive he is, always going forward & taking on defenders, an noone can live with his power + pace

Like a streak of lightning flashing cross the sky, Like the golden arrow Whizzing' from a bow, like a mighty cannonball he seems to fly, you'll hear about him everywhere you go, The time will come when everyone will know the name of ADAMA TRAORE, ADAMA TRAORE. #WWFC

Good morning Wolves fans. I have to say, ain't it great being a fan of that team right now? For it almost ending up a 0-0 draw with West Ham yesterday and then boom, up steps Traore to score the winner in injury time.????????What an awesome moment yet again.???????? #WWFC

True. Running to receive the ball as well as running with the ball. He is a huge threat and getting better each week. What a signing.

With a number of good performances on the day, clearly Traore stole the show for his second-half efforts and it can’t be too long at all before the 22-year-old is taking to the pitch from the beginning of matches as he’s consistently making a difference when coming off the bench now.
