Wolves boss feels team need to ‘reinvent’ themselves after Arsenal loss

Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered their first loss since the return of the Premier League on Saturday. Wolves lost 2-0 at home to Arsenal by goals from Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette. After the game Nuno Espirito Santo vowed to bounce back in their hunt for a top four finish.

“First half was balanced. Both teams were organised with not many chances,” he told Sky Sports. “One moment we lost our shape and Arsenal scored. We started the second half better and were pressing and creating chances. But we knew as the game goes by Arsenal have good players on the counter-attack.”

“The work was there. We go for the next one. Mistakes happen. What we have to look at and solve. It was a moment of concentration and we allowed ourselves to concede. We have to bounce back and reinvent ourselves. I think we had spells where we had options to score. The goal was there and we were looking for it. After the second goal it became much harder.”

“It doesn’t change the way we see things. Other results and the table do not guide us. We were not able to do things we wanted to do. We only focus on the way and how want to do things and focus on the next challenge. We must stay in the game. Arsenal did not have many chances and we allowed them to have these moments.”
