Diogo Jota scored his 10th goal of the season to tighten Wolverhampton Wanderers’ grip on seventh place.
Wolves moved four points clear of Everton and Watford in the race for seventh with two games left to play.
And it was Jota’s 77th-minute winner that separated Wolves and Watford in yesterday’s game after Raul Jimenez and Andre Gray had exchanged blows.
Jota is an exciting young player who gets fans on the edge of their seats when he has the ball. But it was a close-range effort that did the job against Watford.
The Portugal international capitalised on a Ben Foster mistake to tap into the net and seal the three points.
Jota now has nine Premier League goals to his name and is now in full flow. After a slow start to life in the Premier League, the 22-year-old is now thriving.
Playing alongside Jimenez in Nuno Espirito Santo’s 3-5-2 system, Jota’s pace, trickery and directness cause all sorts of problems.
Once again, Jota was on top form after helping to beat Arsenal in midweek. Here are some tweets from Wolves fans hailing his display.
Never let him leave
