Adama Traore has been dribbling past opponents for fun this season and leads the way in three statistical categories in the Premier League.

But it is not the Spanish winger who has the most nutmegs to his name in the top flight so far this term.

That is Wolves teammate Francisco Trincao, who has three from three games, as per FBref’s data.

Trincao has shown Wolves fans glimpses of his skill and has obviously embarrassed a few opponents already.

There were also kick-ups in pre-season against Celta Vigo, which gave the supporters an idea of what to expect.

The next step is to turn decorative touches of skill – like nutmegs – into game-altering contributions.

 

Trincao has scored his first Wolves goal – against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup – and will hope for that first league strike as soon as possible.

Another new-boy leads the way

Trincao is not the only Wolves summer signing topping the stats.

No Premier League goalkeeper has made more saves than Jose Sa’s 11, underlining how swiftly he’s adjusted to English football.

Perhaps Wolves will hope for Sa to be slightly less busy in the weeks ahead.

That said, Bruno Lage’s attacking style has contributed to Hugo Lloris (11), David de Gea (10) and Kasper Schmeichel (9) finding themselves near the top of the standings.
