Wolves will keep attacking - Nuno

27th December 2018, 16:00 by James Mason

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo says Tottenham's goalscoring form will not make his side sit back at Wembley on Saturday.

Spurs have rattled in 11 goals in their last two matches, thumping Marco Silva's Everton 6-2 on Sunday in a thrilling contest before hitting five without reply against Eddie Howe's Bournemouth on Boxing Day.

England international Harry Kane, South Korean star Son Heung-min and Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen are all in particularly impressive form and the trio will be eager to keep churning out victories.

Wolves head to Wembley next off the back of a 1-1 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage but despite going up against free-scoring Spurs, Nuno is refusing to adopt a defensive approach.

"We've played already many games against top teams where we have shown that we don't change our identity," he said. "We are trying to build something, so when you try to build you do not look at the game like, 'What is the best way to get a result?' No, it's what is the best way for you to compete against these teams?

"If you have to defend and have less of the ball it does not mean that you are not trying to win the game.

"We've shown in previous games that we attack, we have shots on goals against heavy teams, even so the building process goes this way so the way we approach against Tottenham is going to be the same.

"We're going to look at Tottenham and see the best we can do in the game."
