Nuno: First half display is the benchmark for Wolves

Nuno Espirito Santo has told Wolves their first-half display is the benchmark after they earned a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace. Wolves earned a well-deserved point at Selhurst Park as Diogo Jota cancelled out Leander Dendoncker’s 47th-minute own goal at the death for a 1-1 draw. The Portuguese’s strike in the fifth minute of time added on ensured Wolves ended their run of three straight defeats after Joel Ward’s 47th-minute deflected shot seemed to have sentenced them to a fourth straight loss. Head coach Nuno is convinced the performance in the first 45 minutes, when they created numerous chances, is…

That run prompted a tweak in formation from head coach Nuno Espirito Santo from 3-4-3 to 3-5-2, which saw Jota moved from the wing to a central attacking position alongside Raul Jimenez. Jota is pretty calm about the current run though…

Palace have a problem with home form as they strive for next level – fan view

By Stuart Austen Crystal Palace have a problem. Having, dare I say, established themselves in the Premier League since their last promotion in 2013, the south Londoners find themselves at something of a crossroads. Now in a record seventh season in the top flight, they are in danger of becoming a victim of their own success. For many fans, mere survival each season is becoming less special. For those of us Seventies kids, who were brought up on the sparsely populated terraces of the early 1980s, seven successive seasons among the elite represents some kind of hedonism. However, like many…
