Adama Traore’s pace will be Wolves’ main weapon against Tottenham

Adama Traore finally earned his first start of the season at the weekend.

But he failed to make the desired impact against Brighton and was hauled off after 61 minutes in their 1-0 loss.

Nuno Espirito Santo will now be mulling over whether to stick with Traore or switch things up this weekend.

Wolves face Tottenham Hotspur in what will be a tough match after consecutive losses.

But Nuno must keep faith with Traore because he possesses a weapon that could really hurt Spurs: his speed.

Tottenham faced Manchester City at Wembley on Monday and narrowly lost 1-0 in a tightly-contested game.

Tonight, Spurs have a difficult trip to East London, where they take on West Ham.

 

In normal circumstances, Tottenham might have been able to rest some players two days after a big match.

But the EFL Trophy offers them a real chance of winning some silverware and London rivals West Ham will be up for the challenge.

Tottenham then have Thursday and Friday to rest before taking on Wolves this weekend.

Inevitably, their players will have tired legs and this is something that Wolves can manipulate.

In Traore, they have arguably the fastest player in the Premier League. His searing pace will cause all sorts of problems for the Tottenham defence.

And if he is on form, that can translate into goals and assists to take advantage of some weary Spurs legs.
