Newcastle boss Eddie Howe admits he is worried about ‘very dangerous’ Wolves star

Eddie Howe is quick to caution Newcastle United about the threat of Pedro Neto, as the Magpies face one of the Premier League’s most in-form strikers this weekend against Wolves.

Pedro Neto is making up for lost time after initially struggling to regain his pre-injury form, celebrating like it’s 2020 while flying down the flank in a swirl of black and gold.

Neto is in top form heading into Saturday’s evening match against Newcastle United. In nine league appearances, the Portugal international has seven goal assists, including his seventh assist of the season in the 2-1 win over Gary

O’Neil’s former club AFC Bournemouth.

Only Kieran Trippier, who might be in direct competition with Neto tomorrow, has set up as many goals as Wolves’ jet-setter.

And, while Howe has praised O’Neil’s effect since being rushed into Molineux, he knows his Newcastle defense cannot afford to rest for a second with Neto around.

Newcastle United will play Wolves at Molineux.

“I believe Gary has done an excellent job in such a short period of time.” “I think going into Wolves was a big task for him,” Howe tells The Chronicle.

“It doesn’t take long for him to establish his authority on the team.” (O’Neil) is doing incredibly well. The victory over Manchester City, the victory over Bournemouth… I think the team was fantastic.

“They’ve got some very dangerous players. Neto is in very, very good form and he’s a dangerous player. They’ve got good attacking players, so we’ll have to be alert and recover very quickly from Wednesday night.

“And that’s the big challenge for us.”

‘Very dangerous’

At Molineux, Newcastle will be missing a slew of crucial players.Alexader Isak and Jacob Murphy have joined

Harvey Barnes and company in the treatment room, albeit Sandro Tonali’s projected 10-month ban has yet to be officially confirmed.

“I think every Premier League game you have to be wary,” Howe continues, with Newcastle still suffering after a 1-0 home loss to Borussia Dortmund in midweek.

“You must respect your opponents.” You must determine their strengths. But, if we play at our best, I feel we can beat anyone in the division. The difficulty for us is to concentrate entirely on our own performance.

“And make sure that we’re the best we can be.”
