Last night’s win over Everton has led to a lot of praises for many Wolves players.

Max Kilman grabbed his first goal for the club and put in a colossal display at the back.

Raul Jimenez scored a beautiful chip and produced a complete centre-forward’s display.

Ruben Neves ran the game for large parts in midfield, and Rayan Ait Nouri also really shone once again in place of the injured Fernando Marcal.

And of course, Bruno Lage has come in for his fair share of plaudits, mainly for that wonderful first-half showing.

One man who seems to have divided opinion a bit following last night’s game, is Francisco Trincao.

The winger found himself back in the starting XI, with Adama Traore dropping to the bench.

That raised a few eyebrows before kick-off.

But it can be argued that Trincao did vindicate Lage’s decision.

In the first-half he was really lively.

He completely exploited Everton’s lack of organisation in midfield and kept coming in from the right to pick the ball up between the lines.

He almost scored with a sensational curling effort, only to be denied by the flying Jordan Pickford.


In the second-half, Trincao was a bit less effective, but still found himself in some dangerous positions.

There was one point when he found himself just yards out with the ball at his feet after good work from Hwang Hee-chan.

He really should have scored, but seemed to panic and snatch at the ball.

There was plenty to like about his performance, and with time, he could become a real hit at Molineux.

It is clear to see that Trincao is one of those naturally gifted footballers.

At the moment, he is lacking that bit of conviction. It was clear with that chance he had in the second-half, and he also had the chance to play Nelson Semedo in on goal in the first-half, but dithered until the move eventually broke down.

The positive signs are there, he just needs a bit more time to get comfortable in the Premier League.

The end product is really all that’s missing at the moment.

Once he gets that first goal in the Premier League, it could be the catalyst for him.

Trincao is very much a rough diamond right now, but there is certainly some massive potential here.
