Wolverhampton Wanderers welcomed West Ham United to Molineux for Wednesday evening’s Premier League clash, and head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was looking to see his side get back to winning ways after the difficult draw with Sheffield United on home soil at the beginning of the month.
We did just that and in some style as we registered our best unbeaten run in the top flight since 1972 (10 games) and goals from Leander Dendoncker (23) and Patrick Cutrone (86) were enough to return all three points and move us up into fifth place in the table.
Although possession was shared, we were the more dangerous side and Adama Traore again showed his worth as his own development continues to improve, there can be few complaints after that one.
Speaking to the BBC following the final whistle, our gaffer said of the game and the unbeaten run.
“I’m proud of the players and fans. Everybody was part of it. Everything we’ve achieved is common effort. It’s the way we embrace our effort. We’re trying to create habits and routines we didn’t have, but want to have on a daily basis. Every day we have to be committed. It’s about the way players play, rest, recover, eat and sleep. They are fit and competing until the last minute. I’m proud – we’ve already played 28 games. We’re always competing, always competing.”
