Ruben Neves has insisted he and his Wolves teammates are taking things game by game.

The midfield maestro has been reflecting on the season so far, after the team finished 13th under Nuno Espirito Santo last season.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

Wolves are currently having a bit of a purple patch.

It’s four games unbeaten in the Premier League right now, and Lage’s side were seconds away from four straight wins last Saturday against Leeds United.

The team have taken 13 points from the last 18 available, and things are looking up.

That said, performance levels have actually dipped recently and improvements are definitely needed.

While results have been good lately, Neves stopped short of saying Wolves can challenge for a European spot this season when asked.

The £50,000-a-week star said (Express & Star): “We go game by game. We don’t think about it.


“We know we can do really good things here, because of the way we are. We are working, and because of the way we are playing.

“I think we will be OK. If we keep working like we are doing, we will be OK and have a good season.

“But we don’t think where we will finish because it’s only the start of the season. We want to go game by game.”

Far too early for that kind of talk

It is too early in the season to make any kind of predictions about where Wolves will finish.

It’s been a very mixed bag so far under new manager Lage.

Wolves definitely have many talented attacking players to do good things.

It might be easier to suggest where Wolves can finish around January time and some new faces have (hopefully) come through the door.
