Dave Edwards blown away by Mario Lemina's performance against Liverpool

Former Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards has raved about Mario Lemina following his performance against Liverpool.

Joel Matip scored an own goal to get Wolves off to the perfect start.

New signing Craig Dawson, making his Wolves debut, then lashed in from close range, before Ruben Neves sealed the victory with a goal on the counter in the second-half.

It was a fantastic performance from Wolves, who will hope the result serves as a turning point.

One man who absolutely starred on Saturday was Lemina, Wolves’ second addition of the January window.

Lopetegui decided to pair him with Ruben Neves. He operated more defensively, allowing Neves to be more expressive.

It was a sensational display from the Gabon international, who was absolutely everywhere.

Edwards has written a few words about Lemina in his latest column for the Express & Star which reflect what the majority of fans thought about his display after the game.

He said: “But the man of the match and best signing so far has to be Mario Lemina in the heart of midfield. Him and Neves were formidable in the midfield of that 4-4-2. You would not have seen a better midfield pairing in the Premier League all weekend.

“They had security but they had dynamism, runs off the ball to help the attack, as shown with that magnificent third goal by Neves. Lemina was terrific, one of the best Molineux performances I’ve seen this season.”

Edwards’ comments come after Lee Naylor and Andy Thompson also praised Lemina.

Lemina’s performance against Liverpool was remarkable.

To have played that well on what was only his second start for the club is absolutely brilliant.

The man was just everywhere, and he really has breathed new life into Wanderers’ engine room.

His physicality and athleticism are his best traits without doubt. But he’s also very tidy in possession.

It is hard to argue with Edwards’ claim that he’s the best January addition so far. To have brought in this level of quality for just £10 million is a wonderful piece of business by the club.
