Wolverhampton Wanderers ace Pedro Netois enjoying a fine season unlike a lot of his teammates at Molineux.

The 20-year-old is often the standout player in games these days, causing full-backs problems with his pace and dribbling.

After an indifferent first year, Neto is looking much more at home in the Premier League now and is gaining plenty of new fans with each passing game.

At times, it seems like the other Wolves players are looking for him to do something.

He’s certainly been very productive, and statistics indicate that Neto is rubbing shoulders with some top players when it comes to creativity.

According to EPL Statman, Neto has served up 41 chances so far this season, which translates to 2.1 per 90 minutes.

 

That places him fifth in the table, with only Mason Mount (52), Kevin De Bruyne (54), Bruno Fernandes (60) and Jack Grealish (67) ahead of him.

Unfortunately for Neto and Wolves fans watching their team from home, the youngster has only been able to register two assists, which surely emphasises the shortcomings of the attack in recent weeks.

Jose can help Neto

With new striker Willian Jose now on the scene, hopefully some of these chances created by the brilliant Neto can be converted.

He delivers a wicked ball and unfortunately the absence of Raul Jimenez has really stung in terms of having a presence in the box.

Jose is similar to the Mexican in a physical sense and will hopefully be able to attack those crosses in the same way Jimenez would.
