Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday, conceding in second-half injury time, but there was praise reserved for a number of players.
Adama Traore came away with plaudits from supporters on social media for his performance at Molineux, scoring Wolves’ equaliser after the hour mark, but he’ll be disappointed to be on the losing side.
So Traore at times is quite simply unstoppable. I think they’ll be some big clubs weighing up a weighty bid in the summer #wwfc

One of the best performances I have seen from Wolves. Not the result we wanted but we were superb in all areas. Traore was unreal. 🐺🐺 #wwfc

Still reeling from the game today. A fantastic 90 minutes, arguably the best any Wolves side I’ve seen has produced in my time watching the club. Spurs were game opposition and defended well. Traore excellent, but my word what a player Joao Moutinho is ❤️ #WWFC #WOLTOT 🐺

Traore (again) was a god. Superb goal! Moutinho (again) was a god – I’ve said he’s the best Wolves player I’ve ever seen; he’s also one of the most talented players ever to grace the premiership. Great team performance, but also a little mention for Saiss – quality🐺✊#wwfc pic.twitter.com/ZEju5MZftm

– Top performance in defeat
– Traore's sublime showing
– Moutinho's midfield masterclass
– Patricio's poor kicking
– No subs made

Against Tottenham, Traore played for 90 minutes, made 69 touches, won one aerial duel, made one chance, had three shots with 100% accuracy, completed 74.3% of his 35 passes, made two interceptions, whipped in nine crosses, made one tackle, drew four fouls and made five successful dribbles.
The 23-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating 10 goals. Prior to Sunday, he hadn’t found the back of the net since October but has finally got off the mark at home.
Wolves next travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City on Saturday. The Midlands outfit are currently eighth in the Premier League table with 24 points from 17 games, having won just one of their last four. They’ll fancy their chances against a Norwich side sitting 19th, however.
