Ebene News – GB – Wolves boss Nuno seeks to stay on an upward curve

Their last game was a roller coaster but, through it all, Wolves were able to set the standard that Nuno Espirito Santo wants every week

A sad first half at Southampton was, surprisingly, followed by one of their smoothest spells of the season to win 2-1 and go three unbeaten in the Premier League

In the second half at St Mary’s Pedro Neto of course scored a magnificent solo goal, but the team effort was the best they have had in ages

Wolves displayed a ‘fantastic’ attitude, winning duels and pressing high – and Nuno is looking for more of the same against the energetic and fearless Leeds

As to whether those dramatically improved 45 minutes set the plan for moving forward, he said: “We always try Sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t

“Sometimes your opponent doesn’t allow it, or the circumstances of the game don’t allow it, but the attitude is always the same

“We did well against Southampton, the attitude of the players was fantastic, so let’s try to reproduce and improve against Leeds”

Tonight’s visitors have been applauded by fans, players and pundits this season for their daring and offensive approach

They are two points above Wolves, 12th having played one game less, and Nuno admits they are a unique entity

“I think they have created their own identity, which makes the opponent’s task very difficult

“They are a very good team, very special and unique in the way they approach the game

“The tactical approach they have, playing man for man all over the pitch, is unique in the Premier League

“Marcelo Bielsa, without a doubt, is one of the greatest managers, so we know they are very competitive. It will take the best of us”

This is Leeds’ approach, they have played many high-scoring games this season – not always ending up on the safe side

They beat Albion 5-0, for example, but also lost 6-2 to Manchester United Seeing Bielsa’s side was almost akin to watching a basketball game, sometimes – end to end stuff

“We have to be ready for this, if the game gets too open it can create an advantage for Leeds So we have to avoid it” said Nuno

“Trying to keep a good pace that suits us is better, but at the same time realizing that Leeds are very good at what they do

“The way they accelerate, the way they get the ball back, the way they press, the way they turn a defensive situation into an attacking one with a lot of attacking numbers is something we must be ready We must have good answers “

Wolves enter without any further development of injuries – Willy Boly and Daniel Podence still out – while Nuno hopes Adama Traoré can pose significant problems for Leeds

“The advantage is the way they work as a team that allows them to engage so many people in offensive situations – the way they squeeze, the way they recover,” he added.

“Players like Adama can create problems for any team – any opponent in the world – because Adama is so special In the case of (Leeds), if we are able to find good situations to promote individual situations with Adama we can gain a big advantage “
