Fabio Silva has now scored more goals for Anderlecht than Wolves

Just a day after Fulham held Wolves to a 0-0 draw at Molineux, Fabio Silva has today scored once again for Anderlect.

The decision to send Silva out on loan is one that has more and more Wolves fans feeling uncomfortable.

Yesterday, Wolves again lacked a cutting edge in the final third, as Bruno Lage was again unable to field a recognised striker at Molineux.

Hwang Hee-chan led the line, before being replaced by new signing Goncalo Guedes.

The South Korean had one good chance to score in the first-half, as did Pedro Neto. Morgan Gibbs-White also had a fantastic chance to score at the back post.

But it wasn’t to be for Wanderers, who had to settle for a point.

Over in Belgium today, Silva was in action for Anderlecht, starting against Sint-Truidense.

The star has now broken into the starting XI, and he once again repaid the faith of manager Felice Mazzu.

After Lior Refaelov had given Anderlecht the lead just minutes earlier, Silva struck on the stroke of half-time.

And it was another excellent finish from the 20-year-old, heading into the far corner. Benito Raman added a third goal for Anderlecht in the second-half.

Silva’s latest goal means he now has five for the club in just six games. He has actually now surpassed his tally of four in 62 games at Wolves.

Wolves will be delighted with Fabio Silva’s start at Anderlecht with youngster up to five goals already

Wolves could not really have hoped for a better start for Silva at Anderlecht.

It is brilliant to see him getting minutes and scoring goals, and he’s only just joined the club.

This is potentially going to be a huge season for the youngster.

If Silva is able to generally sustain this kind of form all the way through 2022/23, then Wanderers could have a very, very good player on their hands for next season.
