Nuno takes positives from Chelsea point

11th March 2019, 08:55 by Michael Holland

Wolves have to take the positives from the draw with Chelsea and get ready for Manchester United, Nuno Espirito Santo says.

Raul Jimenez's breakaway goal after 56 minutes had looked like sealing victory for Wolves and ending Chelsea's recent resurgence, but Eden Hazard popped up with his 13th Premier League goal of the season to earn a point for the home side deep in stoppage time.

Despite the disappointment of letting the win slip away at the death, Nuno preferred to congratulate his players on the performance they put in at Stamford Bridge.

Next up is another big game against United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, and there is no time to feel sorry for yourself, Nuno says.

"Goals always come from situations that are not so effective," he said. "We are going to take a look [at Chelsea's goal], but I'm very proud of our fans who enjoyed the whole game singing our songs at home at Stamford Bridge - so big credit for us.

"My players are sad because they know that they did a fantastic job. We had it, but this is the growing process and we have to bounce back, put today behind us and prepare for Saturday for another big fight [against Manchester United]."
