Wolves were fantastic from the get-go against Jurgen Klopp’s side, and could have scored more than the three they did.

It was a very satisfying result, considering the two results against Liverpool in January.

At the heart of Saturday’s amazing performance and result was Neves, a man who has been nothing short of exceptional this season.

Wolves have struggled as a collective. But Neves has always stood out in midfield.

After assuming the captain’s armband from Conor Coady, his game appears to have improved even further. And he has now developed leadership qualities.

He’s helping to drag this team away from danger, and Kilman has lavished praise on his teammate.

He said (The Athletic): “Ruben is brilliant, he’s a top player. He deserves everything and has been doing really well from the start of the season when maybe we haven’t been doing so well.

“He’s always kept his levels up and been really consistent. He’s a great leader to look at and work with.”

It was yet another brilliant display from Neves, who has just been fantastic since the start of the season.

While other players’ levels have dipped at times, the maestro has been refreshingly consistent for Wanderers, and it’s probably thanks to him that the club were never cut adrift.

Quite possibly, this could be Neves’ last season at Molineux. He has been unbelievable since he arrived at the club for just under £16 million back in 2017. But it feels as though it could now be his time.

No one would begrudge him a move to a club that’s in the Champions League or a team that’s regularly challenging for silverware.

Liverpool themselves might hope to land him, having recently been linked.

One thing is for certain – if he does go in the summer, he will be extremely difficult to replace.
