Wolves boss Nuno on Arsenal defeat: Learn and move on

Wolves boss Nuno says they must learn from their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Wolves lost for the first time since the restart, conceding a goal in each half and failing to break down the Gunners at Molineux.

Nuno said, "The first-half was balanced, I think both teams were organised. Good possession, not too many chances, with the exception of one moment where was lost organisation and focus, and Arsenal scored.

“The second-half was better, we started pressing, putting Arsenal deeper into the pitch. We created chances and had a moment where we could go for the draw, but we know as the game goes by, it becomes dangerous, on the counter attack Arsenal have good players.

“There was a lot of things that didn't happen. We should do better, but this is the game of football, the result happen, it's a consequence of how we do things. It wasn't one of the best games, but the work was there, let's go for the next one."

He added: "This is the way to bounce back, to become again on Wednesday better, this is how we do things. Our approach is always the same, no matter who we play. This how we build and be able to compete.

“What was missing today, a little bit more urgency at certain points. There was a moment that was the definition, if we were going to draw and push for the last moments of the game, but it didn't happen."
