Wolverhampton Wanderers came from two goals down to win at Aston Villa yesterday.

The club made it three wins on the bounce, with Romain Saiss, Conor Coady and Ruben Neves cancelling out strikes from Danny Ings and John McGinn for the hosts.

Villa were in a commanding position and should really have seen the game out.

But Wolves never gave in, and capitalised on some Villa nerves and complacency.

It was a huge result for Wolves, who had a tricky start in terms of results this season.

Bruno Lage began with three 1-0 defeats in a row, which was a huge frustration given how well the team played.

Neves’ winner was fortuitous in that it took a wicked deflection off the wall. That was probably deserved given the lack of luck in the opening weeks.

The Portuguese midfielder’s strike led to scenes of chaos in the away end, and fans have been lapping up footage of Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa sprinting the full length of the pitch to join in.

The 28-year-old is already a very popular figure at Molineux. He has started in great form following his move from Olympiacos.

He scooped the club’s latest player of the month award.


It was great to see him getting in there with the rest of his teammates and all the fans, and supporters on social media lapped it up.
