Nuno Santo happy with his team’s determination after West Ham win
The teams played out a goalless first-half before Romain Saiss met Joao Moutinho’s corner to score his second goal of the season, with Wolves finally getting the reward for their domination.
Moutinho was once again the provider from the corner as Raul Jimenez doubled the advantage for the hosts before the Mexican brought up his brace, latching on to Diogo Jota’s through ball to make it 3-0.
Wolves continued their fairytale return to the top flight as Nuno Santo’s men climbed up to 7th in the standings with the resounding victory and the manager was impressed with his team’s determination in the second-half.
“You never know [if you will break through],” said Santo. “What I think is that we have to keep insisting minute after minute to achieve what we want, we can’t spend too long complaining. We did well.
“We played good, in the first half we played well but we didn’t manage to score. We kept the tempo and composure up. We had good position and movement, but there was always the danger of them hitting us on the counter-attack.”
He said: “We have the next challenge now. The table doesn’t mean anything to any team at all, we have to keep focused on the next challenge – and that’s Everton.”
