Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said he was proud of his side’s performance as they comfortably beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park this afternoon.
Goals from Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker secured the points for the visitors at Goodison Park to cement their seventh-placed position in the Premier League as they maintain their excellent form since their return to the top flight.
Speaking after the game, Wolves’ Portuguese boss said that he was impressed with his team’s performance, but insisted that they can still improve in the remaining 13 games of the season.
“We are proud of the work we did today. I think the first half we played better and in the second half both teams were organised, it requires a lot of shape and being compact but when we achieved the third goal the game was done for us,” Espirito Santo told the BBC.
“Everton is a very good team, good manager, It’s tough to come here with atmosphere but we will go game by game, this is the approach we have. It is a long way to go and we can improve. We are not looking at the table until we go again.”
The game was temporarily suspended after a black cat hilariously gave security staff the run around on the Goodison Park turf, and when asked about disruption in play, Nuno revealed his superstitious side.
“Where I come from in Portugal the black cat is bad luck so I never want to see cats again,” he said.
"Am I still on?"
Glorious work from John Acres! You'll never find a better piece of commentary about a cat on the pitch. 🐈
