Nuno Espírito Santo expressed satisfaction with how Wolves performed in their 3-0 win over Everton at Molineux.

The Midlands side had lost their two previous games to Arsenal and Sheffield United, but the victory on Sunday put them back in the hunt for Champions League places.

Goals on either side of half time from Raúl Jiménez (penalty) and Leander Dendoncker broke what little resistance Everton offered, and substitute Diogo Jota rounded off the scoring 16 minutes from time.

While Nuno wasn’t completely happy with certain aspects of the display, he acknowledged it was a significant improvement on the last two outings.

“No doubts about it. I think we played good,” the Wolves manager said.

“In the first-half I think we still had the same situation as the previous games, we didn’t finish the actions, there was always one pass missing, so it’s something we have to look at.

“It was very important the timing we scored, at the end of the first-half and beginning of second-half.

“It’s difficult for our opponent to react in that moment and we were able to manage better the game.”

The win moved Wolves up to sixth in the Premier League table, just four points behind fourth-placed Leicester.
