Winger Adama Traore feels Wolves must cut out the mistakes that blighted their performance against Chelsea when they face Braga in the Europa League. The West Midlanders were thrashed 5-2 at home by Frank Lampard’s Blues on Saturday – a result that leaves them 19th in the top-flight standings.
It was Nuno Espirito Santo’s side’s second consecutive league reverse and means they have yet to win a Premier League match this term, with just three draws to their name.
Whether or not the qualifying rounds of the Europa League have played a part in proceedings is open to debate, but there seems to be no panic at the club at the moment.

Wolves were excellent during qualification for the group stage of Europe’s second-tier competition, conceding just four goals during their six games although the real test comes later this week.
The men in gold and black will also face Slovan Bratislava and Istanbul Basaksehir in Group K and Traore wants a response on Thursday against Braga. “We are all looking forward to the game on Thursday night, but the first thing we have to do is work on our errors from Saturday,” the midfielder told the club’s website.
“It was tough for us, losing five goals at home, but we’re going to have to think about it, work on those errors, keep going and keep pushing ahead of Thursday.”
Braga are also yet to set the world alight domestically in 2019-2020 and sit third from bottom in the Portuguese top flight.
However, Traore is refusing to take them – or any other side in the competition – lightly. “I think any team in the Europa League are a good team who we will respect going up against them,” he added. “We will give everything, try to play and try to beat any team.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
