Pedro Neto played well despite Wolves’ draw with Newcastle United on Saturday.
Leander Dendoncker’s goal earned Nuno Espirito Santo’s side a point after Miguel Almiron had opened the scoring early in the first half.
While their front three drew a blank, Wolves can take heart from Neto’s performance against Steve Bruce’s men.
Per WhoScored, the 19-year-old had 53 touches of the ball, more than both Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore.
He had a passing accuracy of 85% from 33 total passes and completed three dribbles, a number only bettered by Traore for Santo’s side.
Neto also won one aerial duel and took two corners, with both being accurate.
This was a performance from the teenager that saw him attempt to get on the ball and make things happen prior to his 85th-minute substitution.
Call yourself a Wolves expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?
Neto has taken some time to adjust to life at Molineux.
He was signed in August from Lazio but he did not complete the full 90 minutes in the Premier League until December, in the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.
He has also started just four games in the top-flight but one feels that he is finally reaching a point where he is making the left flank his own in the absence of the injured Diogo Jota.
Neto scored against Watford last time out, his first league goal for the club, and was again an exciting, ebullient presence on Saturday.
If he can continue in this vein, adding consistency and regular goals to his game, he will be a star in the Midlands.
Meanwhile, one Wolves man holds their top-six push in his hands!
