Wolves boss Nuno: Stand up and be counted

Nuno Espirito Santo has called on his experienced Wolves stars to 'improve their individual performances' ahead of tomorrow's test against Crystal Palace.

Six games into the 2020/21 Premier League season, Nuno's side have picked up a respectable 10 points.

They have, though, found goals hard to come by – the bottom three of Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham being the only ones to score fewer than Wolves' six.

And as Wolves aim to rediscover their prowess in attack against the Eagles, Nuno said: "What I see and what I think is that we have to improve.

"In the previous game, we had a lot of the ball and good spells of possession.

"We were very organised, but we made a terrible mistake from a set piece, and this is what I look at.

"We have to be patient enough to recognise that a lot of the dynamics inside of the team have changed.

"Players that came in need time to settle down, and players that were here – and due to many factors – have to improve their individual performances.

"Trying to do things fast is not the way we work. We want to sustain ourselves during the competition, so we do not have ups and downs.

"This our aim, to be competitive game after game."

Nuno, while insisting they have 'issues', is not thought to have any serious concerns for the clash.

One of the new players still looking to fully settle in is Nelson Semedo and on how the former Barcelona man has done so far, Nuno added: "He had a good game in the previous game, better than the other ones.

"This is the growing process of a player that arrived late. The progression is there. He can give us so much things as he's so talented."
