Virgil Van Dijk faced the absolute pace of Adam Traore unlike the rest of the defenders in the league, who have been bossed by him so far.
Adam Traore has gained massive praise from the critics and fans after his blistering pace in the Premier League. Manchester City has faced defeats in both Premier League fixtures against Wolves.
In both losses, Traore was a crucial aspect of the game, which eventually led to Manchester City’s huge trail in the table against Liverpool in the Premier League.
The ex-Barcelona player is now being called as the ‘Tank” due to his appearance, plus his electric speed is another factor for defenders being concerned against him.
Last night, he made a joke out of Benjamin Mendy which eventually led to the second goal by the Wolves. However what happened when the World’s best defender faced the rising star of the Premier League.
Well, the Dutch International certainly made him look ordinary when Wolves faced Liverpool this season. The former Middlesbrough winger darted down the flank in a dangerous position but Van Dijk showed just why he’s the best defender in the world and was in Ballon d’Or contention.
He outpaced and outmuscled Traore, knocking him on the turf and winning the ball for his side. Thus, Van Dijk showed how to defend against Adama Traore.

Van Dijk has also claimed that he is fast and there is no denial on his defensive abilities. Nevertheless, Traore is a young talent and many years are left in his career to shine.
If he remains consistent with the opportunities about to fold in the upcoming matches, surely Traore will be a hot prospect in the summer transfer window.
