Beating United ‘just another game’ – Wolves forward

Diogo Jota claims beating Manchester United was ‘just another game’ for Wolves. The in-form Portuguese forward took his tally to eight for the season in all competitions to cancel out Scott McTominay’s opener as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side claimed all three points thanks to Chris Smalling’s own goal. Victory meant Wolves returned to winning ways after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Burnley, to provide the perfect lift in the countdown to the FA Cup semi-final against Watford at Wembley. It was also Wolves’ second win over United in 17 days after knocking them out of the FA Cup. But Jota believes…

Wolves set to announce £32m signing tomorrow

Wolves are expected to announce they have completed the permanent signing of Raul Jimenez tomorrow morning. A new club record fee believed to be £32m has been agreed with Benfica for the 27-year-old striker, who has agreed personal terms on a four-year contract that will keep him at Molineux until 2023.

Coady reveals what he said to Wolves players against United

Conor Coady has revealed how he kept his Wolves team-mates on their game during a potential turning point against Manchester United. Wolves came back to win 2-1 after Diogo Jota’s equaliser cancelled out Scott McTominay’s opener and Chris Smalling’s own goal at Molineux last night. But captain Coady believes Ashley Young’s sending off for two bookable offences in the 57th minute at 1-1 was a pivotal moment and that he had to keep his colleagues switched on. “When he was getting sent off, I was going round telling the boys to just become more focused, because it becomes harder,” said…

Coady salutes J force and hails this world class Wolves performer

Wolves captain Conor Coady has paid tribute to ‘sensational’ J-force strike duo Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota after their part in the 2-1 win against Manchester United – and claimed goalkeeper Rui Patricio is ‘world class’. Jimenez assisted in the own-goal winner which trickled in off Chris Smalling while Jota’s equaliser was his eighth goal of the season. All of Jota’s strikes have come since the pair first linked up as a two for the 2-1 win against Chelsea on December 5. Since December 5, they have been involved in 16 goals and 10 assists out of the 27 goals…

Matt Murray: De Gea at fault for Wolves’ winner

Former goalkeeper Matt Murray believes Manchester United number one David De Gea lacked bravery for Wolves’ winner. Murray, who played 100 games for Wolves before injuries forced his retirement, reckons the Spaniard should have gone for the ball after Raul Jimenez challenged for Joao Moutinho’s cross before it hit Chris Smalling and trickled over the line for an own goal as Wolves won 2-1. “Raul Jimenez has to take great credit for the way he gets in there, the strength he shows, but could David de Gea have come and spread himself a bit? I don’t know,” Murray told Sky…
