Wolves fans assess Ruben Neves’ poor start to the season

After the Premier League’s opening nine matches, Wolves currently occupy 13th but have only lost two games, which is the same number as four of the top five in the league, including reigning champions Manchester City.

Nuno Santo’s men actually dealt one of those defeats right before the international break as Adama Traore netted a brace at the Etihad Stadium.

Ruben Neves made his first start in three matches during that game, playing the full 90 minutes, but last time out against Southampton, he could only manage the first-half after picking up an injury – which has been the story of his season so far.

The 22-year-old has struggled to continue on from the form that saw him contribute to Portugal’s UEFA Nations League triumph in the summer.

Several of the Molineux faithful have taken to social media to assess his performances so far.

One supporter brandished him as one of the worst in the Wolves squad while ‘woeful,’ ‘anonymous’ and ‘completely useless’ were three other phrases used to describe him.

Another fan believes the Premier League may be a step too far for Neves after the player dominated the Championship in his debut season as the west Midlanders clinched the title in 2018.

The 6-foot midfielder scored six in that season, but could only manage four last term with his figure for this season being just the one from nine appearances, per WhoScored.
