The Lowdown: Wolves draw at Brentford
Wanderers made the trip to west London to take on the Bees, looking to respond after last weekend’s galling 4-0 defeat at home to performance.
Wolves fell behind to a Ben Mee goal, with the visiting fans fearing the worst, but Neves drew his side level almost immediately, easing their concerns and showing once again that he is the main man at Molineux.
In the end, both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils, on what was an adequate afternoon at the office given Wolves’ recent form.
The Latest: Madeley hails Neves
Taking to Twitter during the game, Madeley lauded Neves’ impact, as he shone in his all-round game:
“Brentford can’t fully clear a Bueno cross, Adama and Semedo work it to the edge of the box and Neves meets it with a first-time, curling shot. He is operating at a different level to the rest of his team at this point.”
The Verdict: Best around
Neves has been an outstanding servant for Wolves over the past five years or so and this was another reminder of his unrivalled brilliance in Wanderers’ squad.
The 25-year-old earned the highest match rating on the pitch, as per Sofascore, completing five long balls, creating three chances and winning the ball back three times for good measure.
This performance further highlighted the importance of keeping hold of Neves for as long as possible, although such displays will also alert those interested in signing him.
