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.

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. Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez – the latter with his eighth goal of the season – equalised for the Molineux men but it wasn’t enough to prevent Nuno’s side falling to their first defeat in 10 games this season. Wolves are one of only two teams with…

Wolves wing back Matt Doherty is set for a spell on the sidelines to have a minor knee operation. The 27-year-old has missed the last two games against Torino and Everton and has now been withdrawn from Ireland duty for their forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifier against Switzerland on Thursday and the Three International Friendly with Bulgaria on Tuesday, September 10.

It’s something that is bothering him.” Nuno is unsure how…

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…

Nuno insists he will not wear out Wolves’ J-force

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo insists he will not wear out Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota. Nuno’s side go to Everton on Sunday with the J-force strike partnership having played virtually the full game in the 2-1 win against Torino on Thursday. The pair were on the end of a physical buffeting, especially Jota, who was victim to two tackles that received bookings. Jimenez has scored seven goals already this season with six in Europe despite just a two-week break following a 336-day season, and has looked sharp, while Jota has three strikes to his name. Wolves are about to…

The Premier League trip to Goodison Park will be Wolves’ NINTH game in a month. Coady has played every minute of Wolves’ last 75 matches in all competitions going back to January 2018. But like his team-mates, the sweeper is showing no signs of letting…

Everton v Wolves preview – Silva’s attack a worry for Goodison fans

By Zach Hobson Everton’s opening Premier League games have been somewhat of a disappointment to most fans who, considering the signings the club has made, would have expected more. Their attacking contingent is the same as last season, but they have only managed one goal between them in three games. The last League match also called into question Everton’s defence after they conceded two sloppy goals against Aston Villa, leaving many fans with a sour taste in their mouths. Despite this early trepidation there are many positives to worry undefeated Wolves. Everton have only conceded two League goals so far…
