Player to watch – Pedro Neto

Pedro Neto was out for a long time with injury but now that he is back in the Wolves side, the team has been given an extra creative boost. Neto has created nine Premier League goals for Wolves this season, three more than both Cunha and Sarabia.

Wolves have their chief playmaker back

The Portuguese midfielder provided an assist last time out as Wolves ran out 2-1 winners at Tottenham and we're backing Neto to create plenty of chances for his teammates on Sunday.
