Wolves: Tim Spiers critical of ‘sloppy’ Francisco Trincao

Wolves: Tim Spiers critical of ‘sloppy’ Francisco Trincao -Premier League

Journalist Tim Spiers has been critical of Francisco Trincao’s performance for Wolves against Everton, despite their eventual 2-1 victory.

The Lowdown: Wolves pick up another win

Bruno Lage’s side are enjoying an excellent run of form at the moment and that continued on Monday night.

Wolves saw off Everton at Molineux in deserved fashion, thanks to first-half goals from Max Kilman and Raul Jimenez, rising to seventh place in the Premier League in the process.

Lage’s men have now picked up 16 points from a possible 21 in their last seven games – only Chelsea (18) and Arsenal (17) have fared better in that time, as revealed by Talking Wolves on Twitter.

The Latest: Spiers criticises Trincao

Despite the win, The Athletic‘s Spiers was disappointed with Trincao’s ‘sloppy’ showing, with the Portuguese losing possession 15 times (Sofascore) overall:

“Trincao almost scored a beauty and should have netted an easy chance…some brilliant touches but also sloppy in possession.”

The Verdict: Needs to improve

Trincao has been a solid enough performer for Wolves so far this season, but more substance is required, with no goals and assists in the league suggesting he lacks end product.

His performance against Everton wasn’t as influential as others – 15 times losing the ball from 54 touches means he surrendered possession about 28 per cent of the times he had it – and Adama Traore could now be pushing for a start away to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

At 21, Trincao is still developing as a footballer, however, so some inconsistency should be expected at this stage in his career.
