Wolves boss Nuno demands attacking performance against Arsenal

Wolves boss Nuno wants an attacking performance tonight against Arsenal.

Nuno predicts Wednesday's clash with the visiting Gunners will be nothing like the Brighton stalemate, when Wolves had 68% possession and 23 shots.

He said: “It will be totally different. Every game is a new game and nothing repeats in football. We say to the players: Compete to the maximum of your strengths and go for it.

“What happened against Brighton is difficult to explain - the first time there has been zero fouls. We didn't make a foul. I have watched the game 100 times and I cannot explain to myself how our team didn't commit a foul. It's never ever happened to me before. It's strange.

“There was too much possession without goals. That's something we have to improve on. But I think it shows a lot of organisation, a lot of balance. It shows that when we hadn't got the ball, we got into the right spaces to recover well. So that bodes very well."
