Wolverhampton Wanderers may have lost 2-1 to Liverpool on Thursday night, but a number of players can hold their heads high after an impressive performance.

Ruben Neves was hailed for shining in midfield, Adama Traore was described as ‘unplayable’ throughout the midweek encounter and Pedro Neto was another player who lit up the stage against difficult opposition.

The 19-year-old boasted the third-best pass completion ratio on the pitch, whipped in numerous crosses over the 90 minutes and frequently dribbled past players to build attacks.

Against Liverpool, Neto had 48 touches, won one aerial duel, had one shot, completed 92.9% of his 28 passes, whipped in six crosses, made four successful dribbles and drew two fouls.

The Portuguese u21 international has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating seven goals. Neto has only racked up 601 minutes of Premier League football, however, as Diogo Jota was previously preferred in attack.

Nevertheless, the teenager’s performance against Liverpool could give Nuno Espirito Santo a selection headache ahead of Wolves’ meeting with Manchester United (February 1).

Where will Wolverhampton Wanderers finish in the Premier League?
