The Scot, who's considered the best left-back in the Premier League, was torn to shreds by Traore during Liverpool's 2-1 victory. And when discussing his one-on-one duel with the speedy Spaniard, Robertson told That Peter Crouch Podcast: "Traore to be fair ripped me apart this season. "He's ridiculous. Without a doubt (he's the fastest). I think he could give most Premier League defenders a 15-yard start and he'd still win the race. Big Virg and him had a great race but Virg has got big long legs." Crouch then weighed in by saying: "How fast is he? He's ridiculous. He does it in bursts. I watch him just walking around for a little bit and I think he's not having much of a...

Liverpool & Arsenal target Traore could move this summer despite coronavirus, says his agent

The pacey winger's representative is hopeful that the Covid-19 crisis will not adversely affect the transfer market Rumoured Liverpool and Arsenal target Adama Traore could complete a move away from Wolves this summer despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis, according to his agent Rodri Baster. Traore began his professional career at Barcelona after rising through the club's famed La Masia academy ranks, but ultimately failed to establish himself as a regular in the first-team set-up. The Spanish attacker was eventually sold to Aston Villa in August 2015, but endured a difficult first season in England which was marred by disciplinary and fitness issues. Villa decided to offload Traore after being relegated from the Premier League, and he signed a four-year contract with Middlesbr...

Wolves seeking to expand Molineux

Wolves are seeking to expand Molineux. The Express & Star says Wolves have submitted a planning application for a new temporary 500-seat stand at Molineux. The club are proposing filling in the corner between the Sir Jack Hayward and Steve Bull stands, which would boost the overall capacity above 32,000. It would see the existing video wall in the south east corner of the ground taken down, with a new one being placed behind an uncovered stand. The finished product would be similar to the existing Graham Hughes Stand in the south west corner – albeit a bit smaller as that holds around 800. If given the green light by Wolverhampton Council, Wolves would like to have the stand completed for the start of the 2020/21 season.

Oskar Buur confident he can make it Wolves

Wolves defender Oskar Buur believes he can make it at Molineux. The young Dane made significant progress before football was suspended because of the coronavirus outbreak, being awarded a new three-and-a-half-year contract. But he has still only played two senior games and wants to start catching up playmaker Gibbs-White and centre-half Kilman – players who have also made the move up from the youth ranks under Nuno Espirito Santo. "Morgan and Max showed the way for me – it's possible for you to do it," said Buur to the Express & Star. "I think the small squad is good for us. We get the feeling that we're close, not too far off it. "You get the feeling that 'OK, if I'm improving every time, I can be on the bench'. "It's not impossible – having 30 players in the squad. ...

Michael Owen Predicts Winner of Premier League Clash Btw Chelsea and Man United

Former Real Madrid and Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has backed Chelsea to beat Manchester United when both teams clash in Monday’s Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge.
