Adams was on target again as Montpellier thrashed their hosts Lyon 4-1 on Saturday evening for their first win of the season.

The 23-year-old netted the last goal of the game to score in his second consecutive match.

He was on fire, scoring an excellent brace in a four-goal thriller against the newly promoted side.

However, despite a brilliant outing in front of his new fans, it was not enough to give Montpellier all three points as both teams shared the spoils.

While his goals were not enough the last time, Adams and his new teammates have now claimed their first points the following a comprehensive win at Lyon.
