GOAL FLASH! Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 West Ham United

(23′ mins): In a stretched, but scruffy opening, genuine opportunities came at a premium, Adama Traore appeared to be Wolves best option during those early moments, while West Ham – a little less direct in their approach – looked to Felipe Anderson and Robert Snodgrass to provide creativity. 

Indeed, it was a good twenty-minutes before either goalkeeper was troubled – David Martin taking no chances, turning over after Raul Jimenez had nodded goalward. But from the resulting flag-kick, Wolves took the lead. Leander Dendoncker sticking out a leg to divert past Martin – the Hammers stopper left flat-footed and helpless.
