Nuno convinced Wolves will get better as he declares Prem form very good

Proud Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is ‘happy’ with his team’s Premier League season so far after they signed off for the international break. The Molineux men suffered their first defeat in 10 games this season as they went down 3-2 at Everton on Sunday. But after four Premier League outings, they are one of only two teams in the top flight with basement side Watford without a win. Wolves’ season has been complicated and lengthened by six games in the Europa League, with another six to come before Christmas after qualifying for the group stages. But after taking that…

Nuno admits Wolves must improve their defending after Everton defeat

Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves must improve their defending after Sunday’s 3-2 defeat at Everton. An uncharacteristic error by captain Conor Coady led to Everton’s first goal scored by Richarlison then Adama Traore was caught ball watching as Alex Iwobi headed their second, before Willy Boly was outjumped by Richarlison for the third.

Wolves are one of only two teams with…

Everton 3 Wolves 2: Richarlison has Wolves looking back in anger – report

Everton 3 (Richarlison 5, 80, Iwobi 12) Wolves 2 (Saiss 9, Jimenez 75) Everton fans sing about Richarlison to the tune of ‘She’s Electric’ but Wolves fans were left reaching for the Cigarettes and Alcohol after this. The reference to Oasis songs might sound corny but there was nothing light-hearted about Wolves’ performance at Goodison Park as they became only the second team with bottom-placed Watford to remain winless in the Premier League going into the international break. The Brazilian forward seems to relish facing Nuno Espirito Santo’s side. His double at Goodison made it four goals in three games…
