Lage must bin Neto after shocking Wolves display

Wolves dropped into the Premier League relegation places after slipping to a 1-1 draw against Newcastle United at Molineux.

Bruno Lage’s side led for much of the game after Ruben Neves’ stunning effort but spent a lot of the second half under the cosh, with Allan Saint-Maximin rescuing a draw for Eddie Howe’s side after a brilliant volley in the 90th minute.

The Toon could have stolen all three points when Elliot Anderson’s header came off the crossbar, but each side would take a point, which continues Wolves’ winless run in the Premier League.

One man who disappointed in the draw at Molineux was Arsenal-linked Pedro Neto. The Portuguese winger has been tipped to complete a £50m transfer to the Gunners in recent weeks, and on today’s showing, Wolves should take the money and run.

As per SofaScore, Neto earned a torrid 6.2/10 rating for his performance, which was the worst of any player to feature in the game on Sunday.

The former Lazio man was unsuccessful in all three of his dribble attempts, with Newcastle right-back Kieran Trippier certainly getting the better of him, as he earned a much more impressive 7.2/10 rating for his performance.

Should Wolves sell Neto?





This was further evidenced by Neto winning just one of his eight duels in the match, resulting in a less than impressive 12.5% success rate.

The young winger has failed to contribute a single goal or assist in any of the opening fixtures and looked low on confidence when he was found by Goncalo Guedes in the first half, only to fire well over Nick Pope’s goal.

While he did find Raul Jimenez for Wolves’ disallowed goal, it was an unnecessary push on Ryan Fraser and the strike was always going to be ruled out, which shows a lack of judgement from the Portuguese ace.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

His one key pass and zero dribbles were also a significant decrease on his season average of 1.5 and 1.8 respectively thus far, which suggests that today was an even poorer level of performance from Neto.

Therefore, Lage might be best selling their wide man while his stock is high, as if he continues to produce performances like his one on Sunday, he won’t maintain that value for much longer.
