Steve Bull has urged Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo to drop Ruben Neves and hand Morgan Gibbs-White a starting opportunity.
After a strong start to the season, last season’s Championship winners have hit a bump in the road after failing to win any of their last five Premier League matches, with a draw against Arsenal the only point taken from a possible 15 on offer.

Next up for Wolves is a trip to 19th-place Cardiff City on Friday evening and the visitors have looked good on the road this term, having suffered just one defeat from their last six away matches in all competitions.
Club legend Bull, who made over 470 appearances in the Black Country, believes the best course of action would be for 18-year-old Gibbs-White to be handed his first league start in place of Portugal international Neves.
Writing in his column for the Express and Star, he said: “Personally I’d bring in Morgan Gibbs-White (v Cardiff on Friday).
He’s done well from the bench recently, looking sharp, agile and positive. “Ruben Neves has had a few off-days recently – he started the season well but his pace has stepped back and I’d be looking at Morgan to replace him for this one.”
