It is no secret that the glamourous Championship winners, Wolves are making noise in the Premier League and Nuno Espirito Santo credits his team’s disciplinary mindset.
The Wanderers have already recorded two wins against the top six sides, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur and drawn against Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. They did not let up easy in their home losses against Liverpool and Spurs either.
Now the West Midlands club sit 7th in the points table, 6 points behind Manchester United. When asked if their results against the Premier League elites mean they are catching up to their level, Santo said, “No. What we try, for every game, is that our approach is the same. The opponent doesn’t mean anything regarding our approach.”
“But we lost points against some other teams. We have to go game by game. For me, (the record) is not an issue. It’s nothing that I hold on to. For all the opponents, we take the same care and try to do the same things.”
Wolves are due to face Crystal Palace next in the new year with Leicester City, Everton and Watford close behind them in the league. Santo further added, “We can achieve a good training session tomorrow, knowing Crystal Palace is on Wednesday. In this tight schedule, you know that anything can happen. We have to be ready and prepare ourselves for Wednesday.”
