Wolves have their first goals and their first win of the Premier League season.
Bruno Lage’s side have seen off Watford 2-0, thanks to an own goal and a debut strike from Hwang Hee-Chan.
Here is a look at four players who stood out on a very pleasing afternoon indeed…
When the game was tight in the first half, it was Trincao’s skill which caught the eye.
He was unable to help Wolves find the breakthrough while he was on the pitch, but came close with a header early in the second period.
The wideman is really beginning to show his quality and his first league goal is surely only a matter of time now.
Semedo’s energy from right wing-back was relentless and he impressed throughout.
He should have scored late in the first half, when played through on goal.
Scoring there would have been deserved reward for a strong performance, where he looked solid defensively as well as threatening in attack.
Traore wasn’t at his absolute best but still completed a whopping 10 dribbles, as per WhoScored.
He would have had an assist if Trincao had headed home the aforementioned chance, after a great dinked cross having driven to the byline.
Bruno Lage switched him back to the right flank at half-time and that seemed to make a difference too.
It’s rare that a substitute makes it onto this list, but Wolves found their first goals of the season when Hwang was on the pitch and he got a maiden strike himself.
He hasn’t had long to train with Wolves after the international break, but engineered a dream debut.
That was a mouth-watering taste of things to come and the whole squad should take confidence from their first league goals of the campaign.
