Wolves boss Nuno proud of Man City point

Wolves boss Nuno was proud of his players for their 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

The hosts took the lead early in the second half after Willy Boly's controversial opener at Molineux, where the Wolves centre-back appeared to score with his arm.

Aymeric Laporte, a £57m January signing from Athletic Bilbao, scored his first goal for the club on 69 minutes and City could not find a winner thereafter.

“We did a good game in all the moments," Nuno said. “When we had the ball we did well, created chances and were able to control the game.

“We needed to defend compact to take the spaces away because we were facing the champions of the Premier League, the quality of the team and the manager, it's very difficult and we only conceded from a set piece.

“We don't have to prove anything to anyone, just be ourselves. We improved on last week against a fantastic team and a fantastic coach, let's do it again next week."

Willy Boly's first goal of the season from Joao Mouthino's cross had Wolves ahead in the second half and, despite conceding the equaliser, Nuno was pleased with how his side managed the game.

“I saw many chances and just before the goal a one vs one with Helder. In that moment of the game the momentum was ours.

“When there's a goal, there's always a reaction from your opponent. Of course, we have to engage more."
