Nuno discontent with Wolves displays despite unbeaten run

‘To say the team is in great form is NOT correct’: Nuno Espirito Santo bizarrely fires warning to Wolves stars that they MUST improve… despite winning three of their last four games ahead of Leicester trip

  • Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves are not in great form despite a good run
  • The west midlands side have won three of their last four Premier League games
  • However, Nuno believes that his side have plenty of things to improve on
  • Wolves travel to the King Power to take on high-flying Leicester on Sunday 

Wolverhampton Wanderers have won three of their last four Premier League games but manager Nuno Espirito Santo has urged his side not to get carried away by their recent form ahead of Sunday’s trip to Leicester City.

Wolves have not tasted defeat since their 4-0 loss to West Ham United in September and their impressive run has seen them climb to sixth in the table, just three points adrift of league-leaders Southampton with a game in hand.

‘The team is not in great form, the team has a lot of things to improve,’ Nuno told reporters. ‘The beginning of the season has been hard but we’ve been able to produce good performances. To say the team is in great form is not correct.

‘You can see that football has changed, the dynamics have changed a lot… you’re seeing crazy results, so you cannot think that you are already there because you are not.

‘Football is made of ups and downs, so we have to be ready.

Wolves have coped well with the loss of Diogo Jota, who moved to Liverpool in the close season and has since netted seven times in 10 games, including a hat-trick against Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Nuno said he was delighted to see the 23-year-old Portugal forward thrive in his new environment.

‘We are very happy for Diogo,’ Nuno added. ‘He is enjoying his football, enjoying his momentum, he is doing amazing for Liverpool. For us, we worked together for four seasons and when a player goes and succeeds, it makes us happy.’
