Nuno delighted with manner of Wolves defeat of Chelsea

Nuno Espirito Santo was pleased with Wolves' response after the loss to Aston Villa last weekend.

The Molineux outfit claimed a home win over title contenders Chelsea on Tuesday, thanks to an injury time strike from Pedro Neto.

Asked about the match, Nuno said: "We reacted well. All the game I think we're always in the game. Well organised. I think second half we played really good.

"I think in the first half the game was very tight, Chelsea had the ball but we were organised. We didn't start the second half well.

"We conceded a goal, but the boys believed the game was there to be competitive, and we did well. We were really disappointed three days ago, football is until the last minute.

"It can happen to any team. We had a big disappointment against Villa and we reacted well. Now we're going to think about the next one. It's too bad the fans are not here to celebrate with us today."
