Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t want to stop after defeating Chelsea and wants to keep up the good work in the remaining matches.
The newly promoted side inflicted a second successive defeat on Chelsea as they registered a brilliant comeback victory over the Blues. After failing to win any of their last six Premier League matches the pressure was on Santo to deliver and his side has done a brilliant job by taming Maurizio Sarri’s team.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s deflected first half effort looked to have secured a vital three points for the visitors but Raul Jimenez’s brilliant finish brought Wolves level with the West London outfit.
A few minutes later Diego Jota netted the winner as they climbed up to 12th place.
Santo said, “I think everybody enjoyed it.
“Everybody from Wolves that is. I thought it was a good performance, honestly. Even though, in the first half we were behind the result, the way we stayed organised and compact.
“Chelsea have very good players and the idea that [Maurizio] Sarri has with possession of the ball, it is very hard. It requires a lot of effort and running and balancing but the boys did everything to stay in the game even though at the beginning of the second half Chelsea had two chances to score.
“I think at that moment the team was thinking about going forward in a rush, disorganised and unbalanced. But when we got the draw I felt, and not only me, I think Molineux felt, we were back in the game. That was totally a credit for the boys, the way they work, and the fans, the way they became so noisy and pushed the team.
“We got the result but we have a long way to go.”
