'Outstanding', 'What a steal' – Wolves fans think one player ran the show v Derby
Wolves took one huge step closer to the Premier League last night, with a 2-0 win over promotion hopefuls Derby County.
And they did it in some style, with Ruben Neves scoring a goal that any Premier League player would struggle to recreate.
That came after a Diogo Jota goal settled any nerves at the Molineux with a sixth-minute strike.
The win leaves Wolves on the brink of a return to the top-flight, 11 points ahead of Fulham in second and 12 points ahead of Cardiff in third.
Wolves have four games left and their fortunes should be confirmed at the weekend.
In the meantime, fans have been marvelling at the Neves wonderstrike, with one fan asking Gazza what he thought of it.

The rest were content to talk about the goal, with one fan saying it was “incredible”.
And, whoever you support, if you’ve seen the goal, you’ll know he’s not exaggerating.
Here are the best reactions to the Neves goal and his display in the latest Wolves win:

We should show that goal to anyone who dare question that a player in their team is better than him. The best player the Championship has seen, bar none.
