Matt Le Tissier impressed by Wolves attacker Diogo Jota in Fulham victory

Wolverhampton Wanderers recorded a narrow 1-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday in the Premier League and it means they are now likely to finish seventh on their return to the top flight.

Leander Dendoncker scored the decisive goal in the 75th minute for the hosts at Molineux, as he volleyed in a cross from assist machine Matt Doherty.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side stretched their lead in seventh and should end up there unless Leicester City win their final two games.

It also means that they could be playing European football next season, unless Watford overcome Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Pundit Matt Le Tissier covered the game for Sky Sports and he highlighted attacker Diogo Jota as a real standout player.

The 22-year-old was once again full of running at the point of attack alongside strike partner Raul Jimenez and a goal was the only thing missing from him.

Le Tissier believes he was unfortunate not to get himself on the scoresheet after a strong day at the office.


“I thought Jota was a real handful all day. He was so lively throughout the whole game,” Le Tissier said on tv channel Sky Sports News (5:15pm, 4 May).

“Fulham’s defence had real problems trying to cope with him, he was pretty unfortunate not to get himself on the scoresheet.

TBR’s View:

Jota has had no difficult adjusting to the Premier League this season and the energy he showed against Fulham proved why he’s been a regular in the starting XI.

The Portuguese attacker has 10 goals and seven assists across all competitions this term, which represents a brilliant return from the youngster.

He was guilty of missing a few goalscoring chances against Fulham, but he can be forgiven for his work-rate and contribution this season.

Jota’s ambition next season should be to push up to the 15-goal mark, as he’s got the potential to do it and takes up some great positions in the penalty area.
