Wolves learning along their way - Nuno

4th February 2019, 10:44 by Nick Harris

Nuno Espirito Santo says the success Wolves are having in the Premier League is down to a 'growing process'.

The win at Everton was their third consecutive Premier League victory, their second on the bounce where they have netted three times and they have built themselves a handy cushion in seventh place in the table.

Nuno says the side have acclimatised as both players and people and that is why they are doing so well but they should remember where they were 18 months ago when he took over.

"It's a growing process. It began more than 18 months ago," he told the Express and Star. "It's the same people, the same players, trying to always find solutions and improve, and grow in our game.

"The team that played at Everton, 70 per cent of them were with us in the Championship.

"And we don't forget where we came from.

"We are very conscious that we came from the Championship, so we still have a long way to go.

"If you have the desire and the hunger, you are always able to fight.

"If not, you wish and expect things. We go by work."
