Former Wolves striker Don Goodman has named his team of the season for Sky Sports.

None of Nuno Espirito Santo’s players made it in but there was an honourable mention for Pedro Neto.

He was voted the Fans’ Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season last week.

And Goodman said that watching the Portuguese wideman puts a smile on his face.

“Aston Villa conceded 66 goals last year, so the difference has been vast this season and Emiliano Martinez has been a big part of that. Arsenal’s loss is Villa’s gain.

“In midfield, Declan Rice just gets in ahead of N’Golo Kante and Kalvin Phillips. He will be a key player for England for years to come.


“I had to go 4-1-4-1 to fit everyone in, such as Mason Mount – who is 8/10 or 9/10 every week – and the hugely influential Fernandes. I have to give out some honourable mentions too.

“Kante at Chelsea and the Leeds trio of Raphinha, Phillips, and Patrick Bamford who have all been really good. Bukayo Saka at Arsenal has been sensational, while Pedro Neto at Wolves puts a smile on my face.”

Injury of course cut Neto’s season short and he will hope to be back as soon as possible to help the new manager get off to a flying start next time around.

He is one of the best young players in the Premier League and there is a lot more to come from him in the years to come.

It’s good for Neto to be getting mentioned in the same breath as the best players in the league this season – it shows the level he’s been at.
