Despite Wolverhampton Wanderers losing 2-1 to Liverpool on Thursday, a number of players impressed at Molineux. Ruben Neves was one of them and fans hailed his performance on social media.

The 22-year-old had a difficult task trying to stifle Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but he shone on the night and was duly praised.

Neves made the most passes among Wolves midfielders, turned over possession six times, put crosses into the box and drove with the ball from deep to turn defence into attack.

Against Liverpool, the Portuguese international played for 90 minutes, made 75 touches, won one aerial duel, created one chance, completed 77.2% of his 57 passes, whipped in three crosses, made three successful dribbles, drew one foul, made three tackles and made three interceptions.

Neves has been a regular for Wolves this season, making 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating five goals. He’s played in every Premier League and FA Cup game under Nuno Espirito Santo and could find himself linked with European giants over the summer. Neves’ impressive, all-action display against the Premier League leaders could garner attention.

Where will Wolverhampton Wanderers finish in the Premier League?
