Gary O’Neil confirms Jose Sa and Pedro Neto picked new injuries after the defeat to the Magpies

Wolves suffered another blow after defeat to Newcastle United, as the club registered two more players who picked up injuries.

For Jose Sa, it sounds like a dead leg. “He has some issues, so it might have been related to that situation, but he’s confident he’ll be fine for next weekend.” I’m not sure if his quad collided with the post or something else.

Pedro Neto had to be taken off due to hamstring strain. It’s simply tight; ”I don’t think there’s an injury there. Really, it was a precaution. Regretfully, we were left with no option except to ensure his safety and that we would be able to travel again on a different day.

Meanwhile, Matheus Cunha was hobbled off on Wednesday and is currently receiving therapy with a teammate attacker Hwang is now expected to remain out until April, while Cunha hopes to return shortly after the international break at the end of March.

“About six weeks, which is a disaster for where we are at this moment,” O’Neil remarked following Newcastle’s 3-0 defeat about Hwang’s injury.

Notwithstanding pre-season relegation fears, Wanderers’ manager Gary O’Neill has received praise for getting the most out of the present team as they aim towards finishing in the top half of the Premier League. Before suffering a hamstring injury on February 11th, Cunha was on a terrific run of goal-scoring form. This injury has kept him out of play for the past several weeks.

Days before the 2023 winter transfer window opened, Wolves announced the club-record signing of Cunha. Atletico Madrid initially loaned the 24-year-old to Wanderers, who are required to purchase the attacker in a £43 million agreement after the 2022–2023 campaign.

Cunha did not raise many eyebrows during his first half-season at Wolves, as the South American scored twice before the season ended and Julen Lopetegui’s team just survived the Premier League by finishing in 13th position.

To meet the Premier League’s profit and sustainability requirements, Wolves had to sell superstars for £140 million during the turbulent summer transfer window of 2023. As a result, Lopetegui was let go and O’Neil was appointed. Cunha, Hwang, and Neto are Wolves’ attacking three, and the 40-year-old keeps bringing out the best in them.

Cunha has scored 11 goals and provided seven assists so far this season. Highlights of the Brazilian international’s season involve his hat-trick in a 4-2 victory against Chelsea on February 4.
