Four touches in the opposition penalty area, six goals.
Ruben Neves's Premier League statistics show he does not need to spend much time in the box to get on the scoresheet, as he highlighted in spectacular style on Sunday.
Neves's average of 1.5 goals to touches in the opposition box is the best ratio in the Premier League since he made his debut in August 2018, which he marked with a superb free-kick as Wolves kicked off their return to the top flight with a 2-2 draw against Everton.
But their combined total of minutes played in that period is less than a quarter of the Wolves midfielder's time on the pitch.

Neves has unsurprisingly established himself as a specialist in scoring from distance, with only James Maddison, who has seven, and Christian Eriksen, with six, scoring more goals from outside the area since the start of 2018/19.
But his two penalties mean his ratio of scoring 66.7 per cent of his goals from outside the box falls short of the all-time long-range experts in Premier League history.
