Wolves boss Nuno: Chelsea were better than us

Wolves boss Nuno was unhappy with their performance after being thrashed by Chelsea.

Nuno offered no excuses for the 5-2 defeat.

He said, “Chelsea were better than us, we have to recognise and congratulate them. Bad games can happen, what is important is we don't repeat them, we have to react and be better.

“It was a bad performance. We know that, the best way is to analyse, knowing it cannot happen again. We have to start from the defensive organisation."

The manager also said, “We starting the pressing, the ball was ours and the game changed with the goal. It becomes harder and required concentration. We didn't react well and made a second mistake – two goals down – and it was tough.

“We don't separate things on defensively or offensively, the team has to become better. We have to organise better, be more aggressive and intense, we know, the only solution – work.

“Even with the mistakes, we still wanted to compete, have the ball, create, press and take risks. We tried it against a very good team but today was not our day."
