Wolverhampton Wanderers may have fallen short to Tottenham Hotspur (1-2), conceding a second-half injury-time goal at Molineux, but there were a number of players who came away with credit for their respective performances.

Supporters hailed Adama Traore on social media and reserved praise for Joao Moutinho too – both players have been outstanding under Nuno Espirito Santo this season. Moutinho pulled all the strings in midfield, created numerous chances for his teammates and frequently turned over possession.

Against Tottenham, the 33-year-old played a full 90 minutes, made 89 touches, won one aerial duel, had one shot, created five chances, completed 84.9% of his 66 passes, made three tackles, whipped in 16 crosses and made two successful dribbles.

Moutinho has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating 10 goals. The Portuguese international has played in every Premier League game and every Europa League outing so far – 2395 minutes amassed from a possible 2610.

He’s been formidable alongside Ruben Neves in the middle of the park and will want to get back to winning ways on Saturday – Wolves travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.
