Raul Jimenez scored the winner on 61 minutes to earn their second Premier League win on the bounce, and the first at Molineux in almost seven years.

Nuno said: "I think we played a good game that we deserved to win against a good team.

"They are a good team who are tough to break down. They stayed narrow and organised (like) what they did last season so I am happy and it was a good game."

Wolves dominated in possession with 59 per cent of the ball while they had 30 shots on goal.

Asked if their finishing was a concern, Nuno revealed he will be drilling his team on their 'final touch' on the training pitch.

"I think is the most important is the way we play, how we control the game and stay organised," said Nuno.

"And creating chances is difficult but we produce a lot, a lot. We have to improve like we always do and we are going to work very hard together, work on finding this final touch that puts the ball inside.


"Talent exists, organisation we work on it, we keep the shape, we keep improving."

He added: "Thank you to our fans who were fantastic. It was a great atmosphere at Molineux. We cannot thank them enough. Our first task is to make our fans happy so let's enjoy it."

Meanwhile Burnley boss Sean Dyche was impressed by Wolves and believed they were the better side.

"I thought they were the best side overall, most creatively anyway," said Dyche.

"Credit to them. They have invested well over last couple of years and you can see that. It is the fifth time this team has played together."
