Wolves Player Ratings vs West Ham United: Here’s how Nuno Santo’s men fared
Wolverhampton Wanderers picked up their first win of the season under Nuno Espirito Santo after Adama Traore left it late to hand them a 0-1 win against West Ham United. The Wolves looked confident throughout the first half and it looked as though they would rue the missed opportunities.
But in stepped substitute Adama Traore who used his blistering pace to get past the defenders and slot it home to wrap up all three points. Pressure will be mounting on Manuel Pellegrini, whose team are now heading into the international break on the back of four successive losses.
Wolves Player Ratings
Rui Patricio (8/10)
A superb performance from the Portuguese goalkeeper, who made a number of vital saves to keep the Hammers at bay. Patricio pulled off a match-winning save when Arnautovic looked certain to score.
Ryan Bennett (7/10)
Bennett was impressive defensively and made a number of important tackles in the box. He was unfortunate to pick up a yellow card.
Conor Coady (7/10)
Coady was dominant in the air and ensured Wolves maintained their line throughout the game.
Willy Boly (9/10)
The French international didn’t put a foot wrong. Seamlessly won everything that came his way.
Matt Doherty (8/10)
Doherty’s deliveries were sublime but Wolves were unable to capitalise on them.
Joao Moutinho (7/10)
Was always available to win the ball and calmly distribute it in the middle of the park. Moutinho almost picked up an assist as well.
Ruben Neves (5/10)
Neves didn’t look like his usual dangerous self on the day and was unable to influence the game much.
Jonny was defensively a rock at the back and was very fluid going forward.
Helder Costa (7/10)
Costa’s dribbles down the right flank posed all sorts of problems for the Hammers. He was unlucky to get on the scoresheet.
Diogo Jota (7/10)
Jota whipped in a couple of great deliveries for Raul Jimenez but the forward was unable to convert it.
Raul Jimenez (6/10)
Jimenez scuppered a number of chances in the final third, including a sitter. He didn’t look confident at all.
Adama Traore (7/10)
Traore’s devilish pace on the ball posed all sorts of problems for the Irons. The winger popped up with a late winner to wrap up the Wolves’ first win of the season.
Leo Bonatini (7/10)
Bonatini laid it on a plate for Adama Traore to finish it and was a constant menace after coming on.
Ruben Vinagre (N/A)
The defender was brought on to see out the game and was unable to influence the game.
