Saturday could be the moment Adama Traore explodes into life for Wolves

Wolves go to the Etihad Stadium this weekend to take on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Bruno Lage’s side are looking to bounce back after the agonising 1-0 defeat to Liverpool last Saturday.

If there is one fixture that’s tougher than Liverpool it’s Manchester City, and Saturday’s game will require another massive collective effort.

It’s more than likely City will dominate the ball as they so often do, and the defence will have to be on it from the first whistle until the final.

It would be no surprise if the game plan is the exact same as last week.

The counter will probably be Wolves’ best chance to score, and Adama Traore may well be looking forward to the game.

One of Traore’s most iconic games in a Wolves’ shirt to date was when he got both goals in a 2-0 win at the Etihad in the 2019/20 season.

Arguably, he has never really kicked on from that game, much to the frustration of some Wanderers fans.

He is yet to score or assist this season, but Traore might just see a revisit to the Etihad as his moment to explode.

City will have most of the ball and the counter-attack is more than likely going to be the key for Wolves.

Traore has done it before on this ground, and he can do it again.

Perhaps the ace will draw on his past success against Guardiola’s juggernaut and rise to the occasion once again.
