Ruben Neves names two of his favourite goals for Wolves in the Premier League

Ruben Neves has chosen his favourite goals he has scored for Wolves in the Premier League.

The midfielder sat down to film a video with the Premier League for their ‘Uncut’ video series, and analysed five goals he has scored for Wanderers.

Neves has carved out a reputation for being a bit of a long shot specialist.

The Portuguese maestro is a deep-lying playmaker. But since coming to Molineux, he was built a brilliant highlight reel of him smashing the ball in from distance.

Neves was presented with five clips of goals against Manchester United, Watford, Everton, Brentford and Newcastle United.

At the end, he was asked which was his favourite.

He first plumped for his goal against Manchester United at Molineux back in 2019.

He received the ball on the edge of the box from Joao Moutinho, taking a couple of touches to set himself before curling the ball with power in off the crossbar.

It was a sensational hit, and a goal that helped Wolves rescue a point having been 1-0 down.

Neves then mentioned his Eric Cantona-style chip goal against Watford last season.

On that one he said: “It’s one of my favourites. It’s not a goal you see every day, and it was really special for me.”

Neves said earlier in the video that he only tried the chip because he had played against Ben Foster before and knew he had a tendency to be off his line a bit more than other goalkeepers.

He added that he had spoken with the goalkeeper coach about Foster being off his line, and that they were looking to exploit that in the game.

It’s possible that this will be Neves’ last season for Wolves.

He was expected to leave in the summer. He’ll only have a year left on his contract this summer, and it might be that it’s his time for a new chapter.

The arrival of Julen Lopetegui may make him think twice. And most Wolves fans will really hope he stays.

But it’d be no surprise if he did finally move on. And he would go with everyone’s blessing.

If that time does come this summer, then he will be a gargantuan miss.

And not getting to see any more long-range stunners from Neves would definitely sting.

It really is a sight to behold when he catches one just right.
