Pedro Neto was lauded by supporters after his performance in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ 1-0 win over Bournemouth. The 20-year-old came off the bench in Wednesday’s victory and impressed enough to give Nuno Espirito Santo a lot to ponder when he names his starting eleven to face Aston Villa.

Which club did Wolves sign Raul Jimenez from?

Against Bournemouth, Neto played for 29 minutes, made 21 touches, completed 90.9% of his 11 passes, had two shots, whipped in one cross, made three dribbles and won one free-kick. He almost scored a superb solo goal late on when he burst through the Cherries’ defence, but his effort went wide of the post.

The Portuguese U21 international joined Wolves from Lazio for £16.11m last summer and gone on to make 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals and making four assists. He’s enjoyed a fantastic debut season at Molineux and may have done enough to warrant a start in Wolves’ next game.

Nuno’s side lock horns with Villa on Saturday and could move into a Champions League place if results go their way. Wolves are coming off the back of four wins from their last five, so they’ll be confident of picking up all three points regardless of who starts.
