Wolves: Wanderers receive Matheus Nunes injury boost

Wolves: Wanderers receive Matheus Nunes injury boost -Premier League News

Wolves have been boosted by the news that Matheus Nunes is expected to return to action soon after his injury scare this weekend.

The Lowdown: Nunes suffers injury

Nunes arrived as an exciting summer signing for Wanderers, making the switch from Sporting CP to add more quality to their midfield.

After a good start to life at Molineux, which has seen the 24-year-old make 11 starts in the Premier League, he suffered a shoulder injury against Brentford last weekend.

While there was concern surrounding the length of Nunes’ absence, some positive news has now emerged.

The Latest: Return expected to be swift

According to A Bola [via Sport Witness], the Portuguese maestro’s fitness setback is not a remotely serious one and he is expected to be back in action very soon, potentially even at home to Brighton on Saturday.

It also means Nunes won’t miss the World Cup for Portugal, which would clearly have been a huge worry for him personally.

The Verdict: Big boost for Wanderers

This is a massive boost for both Wolves and Nunes himself, with the midfielder already proving to be such a key performer this season, averaging two tackles per game in the Premier League and ranking highly amongst the squad in terms of dribbles, chance creation and pass completion.

If he is back for the Brighton game it will be an added bonus – not many would have expected that to be the case as shoulder issues can be very problematic – and enhance their hopes of a positive result.

There are now three matches remaining for Wolves before the World Cup break, meaning Nunes should be back in peak condition by the time the competition starts.
