‘MOTM for me’, ‘different class’: Some Wolves fans blown away by £100k-a-week ace’s display last night

A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have waxed lyrical about Joao Moutinho’s display at Molineux in their Premier League draw on Monday.

The 34-year-old was one of Wolves’ better performers on the night as Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges fought back to earn a 1-1 draw with Southampton.

With Conor Coady absent from the line-up for the first time in 121 fixtures, Nuno changed the shape of his back line, opting for a 4-3-3 formation.

Though Saints were initially caught out by this change in shape, they went on to open the scoring, Theo Walcott netting in the 58th minute.

However, Wolves battled back and, on 75 minutes, substitute Pedro Neto equalised following a Raul Jimenez shot striking the foot of the post.

Moutinho, back in the starting XI, looked the most comfortable with his role in a midfield three and almost created the opener.

The Portugal international grew into the game as he helped pull the strings and dictate the play, a welcome return to form after some average performances.

Here is what some Wolves fans were saying on social media about the £100,000-a-week ace:
