A number of Wolves supporters have been hailing some Joao Moutinho brilliance late on in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Newcastle United.
Bruno Lage’s side were in desperate need of another Premier League victory last weekend and they did exactly that.
Wolves made it successive league wins with their triumph over Newcastle, with Hwang Hee-chan scoring twice for the hosts, helping them rise to 11th in the table.
Who will score more league goals for Wolves?
Moutinho started for Lage’s men, producing a strong performance as his impressive late career resurgence continues.
One moment in stoppage time summed up the Portuguese maestro, with Wolves’ official Twitter account sharing a clip of him making a vital late tackle before running clear with the ball.
