First up in this Wolves transfer quiz, who was the last player to be signed by Bruno Lage at Molineux?

 

The Verdict: Good news for Wolves

With the Wolves boss putting to bed any concerns there may have been about Podence picking up a serious injury against Everton, this will be good news for the Old Gold and their supporters.

With three goals in the league this season, the 27-year-old has netted 30% of Wolves’ goals for the entire top-flight campaign. In addition, he has had more shots on target (10) and made more key passes (24) than any other player at the club.

Did Daniel Podence have a good game against Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Although Wolves as a team have not been particularly deadly when it comes to scoring goals this season – they are still the league’s lowest scorers despite the win yesterday – it’s clear that Podence is an important attacking figure for them.

Taking all of that into account, it should be a big weight off Wolves supporters minds’ that the winger did not pick up a significant injury against Everton and should be able to continue playing over the festive period.
