Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has suggested that his team may have been lucky to secure a victory over Southampton on Saturday. The match was tightly contested with both teams testing the opposition goalkeeper but, ultimately, it was the Wolves who prevailed after goals from Ivan Cavaleiro and Jonny Otto in the final 11 minutes of the game.
Speaking after the match, Nuno admitted that he cannot determine where his side deserved the three points, though they managed to gain control of the game following the opening goal, he said: “In the end, if we deserve it or not, you never know. If you ask if we deserve it or not, I would say yes. Probably Mark Hughes would say no, but this is the game, this is sport, this is football. What we know is we are ready and able to adapt to any scenario we come across in the game. Even when you are not having the ball you have to stay consistent, organised and that's what keeps you in the game. You have to score and after the first goal we had the game controlled and managed well and we arrived at the second goal.”
