Richarlison and Ruben Neves emerge as potential stars of the Premier League

This was a game in which two 21-year-olds took the keys to the door of the Premier League and unlocked possible advance campaigns.

Richarlison started paying his £ 44 million fee with a bellicose performance that brought two goals and almost led the Everton of 10 men to victory.

The wolves rescued a draw thanks to Rubén Neves, who scored, assisted and assumed the responsibility of pushing his newly promoted team in the face of defeat.

In his return to the big moment after six years away, Molineux received a contest that throbbed with vitality, incidents and art. The display of fireworks prior to the game was surpassed by the action in the field.

In the center of everything were Richarlison and Neves. Despite their tender years, they were totems of their teams, playing with courage is impossible to learn.

Richarlison made the first move, showing why Marco Silva had commissioned such a large transfer fee for his previous job at Watford, a striker who scored 28 games in the second half of last season without scoring.

The only one of Silva's summer signings to start, Richarlison started off as offended by the surprise of his price. His response to not having received an early foul was to fly in one thrust, winning a yellow card, but his energy then won the free kick from which Everton took the lead.

The wolves could not clear and the ball fell to Richarlison, who scored with his first shot of Everton, having failed to do with any of his last 53 for Watford.

His second attempt by Everton produced a goal as well. Smell to Thierry Henry about it: the fluid movement of the wing, the foresight to see the opportunity, the curl cultivated in the far corner. Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio dived in vain.

Richarlison also took the opportunity for Theo Walcott with a smart knock-down and won two more free throws.

Silva felt that more should have been granted and asked for more attention from the officials. "It's the same movie I saw last season," he said. "It's clear that you must protect talented players in the right way."

The manager of Everton sounded confident that Richarlison's score will continue, but asked his teammates to help him. "We have to be calm, we are talking about a player who is 21 years old," he said.

"Of course he's a boy I know very well. He learns every day. He comes here to work very hard. But you have to support it. This game was Richarlison, next weekend I hope it's the others, Theo, Cenk Tosun or Oumar Niasse. Because in a great club like us, not only a player has to get the result.

Neves illustrated his importance for the Wolves during the campaign for the title of his Championship and it was exciting to see him continue that form in the top flight.

The Portuguese midfielder scored six times from outside the area last season and when Phil Jagielka committed a foul on Diogo Jota in the last third, the expectation swept the stadium.

Jagielka's dismissal could be considered hard, but the combination of posts on the ankle and the proximity to the penalty area gave Craig Pawson enough reason to produce the red color.

In the middle of the debate, Neves saw the opportunity to move the ball five yards ahead of where the offense was committed and his free-kick was accurate, making the most of Jordan Pickford's pass to the right to curl the ball in the top corner left

Neves pointed to his temple in celebration, a reference to his hero Andrea Pirlo, whose autobiography was called, I think what I play. Like his Italian idol, Neves demanded possession and attempted to disrupt the opposition's defense.

He tried 93 passes, 31 more than his teammate Joao Moutinho, and had 111 touches, more than any other player in the field. It was his cross in the absence of 10 minutes for the equalizer of Raúl Jiménez.

"This comes from the task he has within the team," said manager Nuno Espirito Santo. & # 39; We build from behind and we pass and support. Ruben with his quality has to give us that. He will do it at every moment of the game, in any circumstance: lose, win, draw.

Neves shares those high standards. "My first goal in the Premier League, but the most important thing was the result," he said. "We did not want a point, we wanted three, we have to keep working."

THE VERDICT OF THE FANS

WOLVES

Ben Husband (Wolves Fancast)

A tense and tight issue that highlighted the increase in quality that the Wolves will face this season. Despite the dominant possession, we fought to knock down a determined Everton and our magic man, Ruben Neves, allowed us to return to the game. The wolves kept their heads and should look proudly back in this throbbing draw.

Star man: Rubén Neves

EVERTON

Joel Parker (Candy analysis)

I missed this Everton, a team with talent and pace in the attack. We also use the left flank, which never happened last season. Schneiderlin fed Baines, Baines fed Richarlison and that created good opportunities. Jagielka did not deserve the red, but a diabolical touch in that area got him in trouble. With 11 men and our full squad, we would probably win that.

Star man: Richarlison
