Nuno Espirito Santo is proud of Arsenal Wolves



Arsenal was held to a 1-1 draw at Wolves, whose coach Nuno Espirito Santo was left saluting performance.

Wolves training Nuno Espirito Santo was left proud of his team's performance after they claimed a 1-1 draw to Arsenal on Sunday.

Ivan Cavaleiro put Wolves ahead in the 13th minute when he turned in the low wing of Raúl Jimenez and long stretches of the match seemed good to lead.

Rui Patricio did not have a huge job in Wolves' goal, though he was helpless and denied Henrikh Mkhitaryan's hairdresser late regimentation.

Still, the Wolves continued to look terrible even after the match and hit Morgan Gibbs-White, while Adama Traore denied Bernd Leno.

But Nuno had only positive words that could say about the supportive party in full time.

"We were coming to the emirates and playing as we played, I think we should be proud," Valencia's former coach told reporters.

"It's a good point, but of course we could win. We were organized, solid and courageous to put our barriers in front of the ball.

"We remained humble, we came out of the championship and we did not take the legs out of the field. Arsenal was not able to play the way they usually do, so the boys count, always assume and help each other.

"When we have a ball, we are threatening and creating a chance. The way we managed to hold and created so many chances against a very good team in the difficult stadium is for our players.

"It has been an improvement since last Saturday, so try to do better."

Leno played a key role for Arsenal and without him the Arsenals were likely to suffer a complete defeat, and coach Unai Emery took note of the German display.

He said: "We knew today that we need a goalie with his performance, because if we risk our offensive moments and give them a transition and a chance in temporary moments, we will need a goalkeeper, and I thought his performance was good for us."
