Nuno Espirito Santo proud of Wolves' Arsenal points


Arsenal was held to a 1-1-run home by Wolves, whose coach Nuno Espirito Santo was left shouting the performance.

Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo was left proudly in his team's performance after claiming that 1-1 draw to Arsenal on Sunday.

Ivan Cavaleiro put Wolves ahead 13 minutes into the match when he went down to Raul Jiméne's low cross and for long strides, the match looked good.

Rui Patricio in Wolves's goal did not have much to do, but he was helpless to deny Henrikh Mkhitary's curling late equalizer.

Nevertheless, Wolves continued to see a threat even after the level and hit the crossbar through Morgan Gibbs-White, while Adama Traore was denied by Bernd Leno.

But Nuno had only positive words to say about the promoted page on a full-time basis.

"Coming to the Emirates and playing how we played, I think we should be proud," said the former Valencia coach to reporters.

"It's a good thing, but of course we could have won. We were organized, firm and courageous to put our obstacles in front of the ball.

"We are humble, we came from the championship and did not take our feet off the ground. Arsenal could not play the way they usually do so much for the boys, they always covered and helped each other.

"When we had the ball, we threatened and created chances. How we managed holdings and created so many chances, against a very good team in a difficult stadium, is a credit to our players.

"It was an improvement from last Saturday, so let's work hard over international and try to do better."

Leno played a key role for Arsenal and without him, Gunners could probably have suffered a massive defeat and coach Unai Emery noted the German display.

He said, "We knew that today we needed the goalkeeper with his performance, because when we take risks at our attacking moments and to give them a transition and alternatives during the transition, we would need the goalkeeper. I thought his performance was good for us. "
