Wolverhampton Wanderers moved a step closer towards automatic promotion to the English Premier League on Saturday after a comfortable win at home to Burton Albion.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are now 13 points clear of third place and six clear of Cardiff City in second after the victory, which was delivered by a Benik Afobe double and a Helder Costa effort.
Fans were delighted with the result and performance, which was inspired by a dynamic midfield display from Ruben Neves.
Last summer’s star signing has been one of the stand-out players in the English Championship this season, often running the show in the middle of the park with his vision and range of passing a class above most opponents.
Supporters can’t quite believe how good he’s been with some even claiming he’s the best player they’ve seen in a Wolves shirt in their lifetime.
Can they hold onto him this summer after a superb league campaign?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Must have watched that Neves pass from yesterday about 30 times today. He really is brilliant. It's a complete privilege watching him in a Wolves shirt. Rolls Royce of a footballer #wwfc

I am no expert on continental football so the hysteria over us signing Neves puzzled me at the start, but crikey what a signing he has been for our beloved football club! This season has been amazing, seeds sown in Austria, garden now in full bloom! I bloody love it 😍#wwfc 🇵🇹 https://t.co/80ngz5dSl0

I don't think I've seen a more controlled passer of the ball like Neves. The man oozes class. Best CM I've seen in a Wolves shirt 🇵🇹🐺 #wwfc

Still recovering from the Neves masterclass yesterday. He's definitely the best player I have ever seen in a Wolves shirt in my lifetime. Promotion is ours now and I can't see us losing the title either. It's going to be a special end to the season #nunohadadream #wwfc

How crazy is it that that was Ruben Neves first assist yesterday! If we had a player like Afobe willing to make runs on the last man earlier think he would have a lot more. #Wolves #Neves #Afobe #WWFC #WolvesAyWe #PassMaster
