Wolves legend Steve Bull spoke exclusively to the Express & Star, and raved about the quality of Portuguese duo Rui Patricio and Helder Costa, labelling the pair as 'superb' and 'outstanding'.

The Black Country outfit have made a decent start to life in the Premier League, taking five points from their opening four outings, and they currently sit comfortably in 11th spot in the table.


Nuno Espirito Santo spent heavily during the summer transfer window, bringing in a whole host of new faces, and many fans and pundits alike are predicting that they will finish inside the top 10 this season..

Bull, who scored a club record 306 goals for Wolves, named two players who have really impressed him so far this season, when speaking exclusively to the Express & Star:

Rui Patricio of Portugal during the UEFA Nations League A group three match between Portugal and Italy at Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on September 10, 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.

"I think Patricio has been absolutely superb for us so far, he has made some spectacular saves. I think Helder Costa has been absolutely outstanding down that right flank and he looks back to his best from last season."

Wolves play host to Burnley on Sunday, and both Patricio and Costa will both have to be at their very best, if they are to have any chance of beating Sean Dyche's well-drilled Clarets side.
