Wolves v Chelsea

Wolves boss Nuno praises ‘fantastic’ performance after Chelsea win

Nuno Espirito Santo was full of praise for his Wolves side after they came from behind to beat Chelsea at Molineux on Wednesday night.

A quickfire double from Raul Jimenez and Diego Jota cancelled out Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s opener for the visitors with the shock result leaving Maurizio Sarri’s side ten points behind league leaders Manchester City.

18-year old England youth international Morgan Gibbs-White shone for the hosts, with an atmospheric Molineux delighting in Wolves first league win since October 5th.

“I think it was a very good performance. In the first half the organisation and staying in the game was important.’’ Nuno told BBC Sport.

“In the second half, we showed desire to go in front. I think it was fantastic work from the boys. The only way to play these teams is you have to run more than them and when you have your chances take them.

”This doesn’t mean all the problems are solved. It means we have to maintain these standards.”

Wolves next fixture is a trip to the North East to face Newcastle on Sunday, whilst Chelsea host champions Manchester City in a huge clash on Saturday evening.
