Ruben Neves has been excellent for Wolves in the first half of the FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.
Neves, 22, has displayed his expansive passing range and threatened in front of goal against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
The Portuguese midfielder joined Wolves from Porto in 2017, and has been important in Nuno Espirito Santo’s impressive opening season in the Premier League.
The game remains goalless at the break, with the best chance going to Diego Jota who had his effort saved by Sergio Romero.
United have failed to create any clear-cut chance of note and will require a much improved second-half performance to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Ruben Neves would fit perfect in a midfield of Herrera and Pogba 💯 👌🏻

Ruben Neves is better than 2 of our midfielders.
One of our midfielders isn’t helping us at all.
The three forward players and Pogba are not on it yet.
Lindelof and Smalling have been very good. They always seem comfortable in games where they defend counter attacks.

Ruben Neves still my first choice DM btw, doesn't matter how he is defensively cause I think Herrera or Fred could help him out

Ruben Neves direct replacement for Matic

Ruben Neves, lovely footballer. Already supremely poised at such a young age.
Cagey match so far though. Not much happening either end.

Ruben Neves has that aggressive stance with his passing. High risk which comes with high reward when executed perfectly. One of the better passers in the league.
