Banega was in complete control for the full 90 minutes and he took 139 touches of the ball in total - with no Wolves player taking over 44.
The Argentine maestro outplayed Wolves counterpart Joao Moutinho and constantly found teammates in threatening positions.
Fans reacted to his performance and they think he oozed class all evening.
One of the most underrated Argentinian magician ever.. Seriously he's been so unused for Argentina over the years

In a time where the game is seemingly being taken over by robots, this man is a testament to the artistry displayed by the very best players of the last generation. What a footballer, he's too good to leave Europe

While he's having one of the best seasons of his career, the 32-year-old will be leaving Sevilla at the end of this season.
He agreed to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab when the La Liga season ended, but opted to stay for the club's Europa League campaign.
Sevilla have good recent history against United, eliminating the Premier League outfit from the Champions League in 2018.
Manager Julen Lopetegui paid respect to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and called them 'the biggest team in the world.'
"We are going to play against Manchester United in the next match - they're the biggest team in the world but we're going to be prepared for them," Lopetegui told reporters per Goal.
"We're focused on the next game, against a top, historic side, one of the best in the history of the sport who are in great form.
"We will give our best as we always do. To play against them will be really tough, but we'll go into it believing we can beat them."
Who do you think will win the Europa League?
