Wolves fans react as Adama Traore shines against Manchester United

The Spaniard was in sensational form after being introduced at half-time.

Wolves came from behind to earn a share of the spoils with Manchester United in an entertaining contest at Molineux.

Anthony Martial opened the scoring in the first-half but Wolves’ response was emphatic. Ruben Neves scoring an early contender for goal of the season in the second period.

The introduction of Adama Traore at half-time in place of Matt Doherty was telling. From the moment the former Middlesbrough man entered the fray, Wolves looked like a different side.

The impact he had was perhaps surprising. Since arriving from Middlesbrough for £18 million (BBC Sport) he hasn’t exactly become a fan favourite at the club.

This performance from the Spaniard was much more like the player that tempted Nuno Espirito Santo into parting with such a sum. He was probing, looked alert and gave Luke Shaw the runaround in the second-half.

Last season he netted one goal and registered three assists in 36 appearances for the club.

If he is to force his way into Santo’s regular plans then he needs to maintain the performance levels from last night.

Here is a selection of tweets from Wolves supporters regarding the performance of Traore:
