Wolves winger Helder Costa can build on Tottenham performance

Wolverhampton Wanderers went down valiantly 3-2 against Tottenham last weekend in the Premier League and proved they could compete against the division’s best despite defeat.

There were plenty of positive to come out of the match and the display of Helder Costa was surely one of them.

The 24-year-old winger played a key role in promotion from the Championship last year, but is still adjusting to life in the top flight.

He is yet to score in the league and missed a golden opportunity in front of goal against Spurs after Morgan Gibbs-White had played him in behind.

Costa asked a lot of questions of Spurs’ defence with pace and trickery on Saturday night, which is something he needs to replicate going forward.

The-right winger is at his most dangerous when he is direct and Wolves look a serious threat when their front three are all on form.

He is a Portugal international that is yet to really show the Premier League his best assets, but gave a glimpse against Spurs and is someone to look out for over the next few rounds of fixtures.
