Moutinho produced a passing masterclass vs Watford

Ruben Neves will grab the headlines after Wolves’ 4-0 win over Watford as he sealed the win with an absolutely outstanding trip.

And the stats as per WhoScored tell the story of an exceptional performance from the Portuguese international.

The chip was just the icing on the cake on a night where Wolves got firmly back on track after a tricky period of results and performances.

But Neves’ midfield partner Joao Moutinho also deserves credit for his performance on the night, despite not scoring.

He had a whopping 98.7 per cent accuracy with his 75 passes on a night where he had 82 touches in total.

Moutinho also did his defensive work, putting in three tackles, which is as many as anyone else in a Wolves shirt on a perfect night.

Bruno Lage’s pair of Portuguese playmakers were back to their very best as Wolves swept aside a struggling Hornets side.

Next up is a trip to Everton, who are also down the bottom of the table and low on confidence, where Wolves will be looking to carry this momentum on.
