Fabio Silva scores again for Anderlecht amid more struggles in front of goal for Wolves

Wolves once again failed to score at the weekend.

Chelsea were the opponents at Stamford Bridge, and it was the same old story, despite Bruno Lage no longer being in charge.

Not much was expected of Wolves down in west London.

But to have gone another game without scoring is a major concern.

It is just three goals scored in the Premier League after nine games so far. It is undoubtedly the biggest issue the new manager must address when he comes in.

And while Wolves just can’t put the ball in the back of the net, Fabio Silva remains very much in the goals on loan at Anderlecht.

The youngster is spending the season with the Belgian outfit, and he has enjoyed a tremendous start.

The 20-year-old made headlines again at the weekend for getting on the scoresheet in the 3-1 win over Mechelen.

Silva was making his 18th appearance for the club, and his eighth start in the Jupiler Pro League.

He scored Anderlecht’s third goal to kill the game with around 20 minutes to go.

The former FC Porto youngster produced a classy side-foot finish into the far corner, and then proceeded to lap it up with the travelling supporters.

It is very clear he is already completely adored by the Anderlecht fans, who chanted his name after he had gone into the crowd.

Fabio Silva’s great form continues, how Wolves may wish they had him now

So that’s eight goals by early October for Silva, which is just fantastic.

He’s getting lots of minutes and scoring regularly, which is exactly what Wolves officials would have hoped for.

The decision to loan him out was probably the right one.

But it is also hard to watch Wolves struggling so much in the final third, as the youngster goes from strength to strength over in Belgium.

Of course, he may not have enjoyed a similar level of success had he stayed at Molineux.

But he’s certainly looking a much better player already.
