Wolverhampton Wanderers are up to 11th in the Premier League, after beating Leeds United last night for a second time this season.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side ran out 1-0 winners just like at Elland Road back in October, to leapfrog the Whites in the table.
The game’s only goal came courtesy of Adama Traore.
The Spaniard actually won’t be credited with the goal, but it was his brilliant strike from range that struck the crossbar and hit the back of Illan Meslier and trickling over the line.
It was the latest evidence that Traore could be of greater use on the left-hand side, with Pedro Neto to the right.
Wolves had plenty of chances in the first-half, but most of them were from range; Neto being particularly keen to shoot on sight.
Leeds came back stronger in the second-half and had several opportunities of their own.
Quite how the game only finished 1-0 was a surprise, but in the end Rui Patricio was a big reason for that.
The 33-year-old has been criticised at times this season, but he was in superb form last night.
The £16 million star (BBC Sport) made a string of key saves (seven to be precise) to deny Leeds, and he absolutely bailed Wolves out a few times at set-pieces due to questionable defending.
Traore is grabbing a lot of headlines today as the man who made the winning goal happen, but fans have been lavishing praise on Patricio for his efforts at Molineux.
He was given a 9/10 rating for his performance by the Express & Star, and it seems these fans would probably agree with that judging by their comments:
Superb performance overall. Neto fantastic first half. Thought Rui Patricio had a very solid game too. Done everything right after a shakey few weeks #WWFC
