Adama Traore strikes late as Wolves pile misery on West Ham

Adama Traore bagged a last-gasp winner as newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers grabbed their first victory of the season, piling further misery on pointless West Ham United in the process.

The substitute, a summer signing from Middlesbrough, was the beneficiary after West Ham's Davinson Sanchez lost possession in his own half deep into stoppage-time, and the flying-flanker finished convincingly after being released by Leo Bonatini.

It had appeared Wolves would be made to rue a host of missed opportunities, with Raul Jimenez spurning the easiest one when he comically tripped over the ball when played through on goal.

At the other end, Marko Arnautovic had his effort blocked by the face of Rui Patricio late on, but this was as close as West Ham came to breaking the deadlock on a frustrating day for the home supporters at the London Stadium.

The result leaves Hammers' new manager Manuel Pellegrini under immense pressure even at this early stage of the season having lost his four opening games - defeat means his side are rooted to the bottom, while Wolves move into ninth.
