Following Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-0 defeat against West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium, manager Nuno Espirito Santo stated that it is pivotal that his side improves and bounce back in their next encounter against Fulham.
A brace by winger Jarrod Bowen, an own goal by Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez and a stoppage-time header by Sebastien Haller sealed a very comfortable victory for the Hammers in what turned out to be a nightmare evening for Wolves.
On a disappointing showing
When reflecting on the events of the evening in London, Nuno spoke to Wolves.co.uk: "We played very very bad.
"We made mistakes, we did not play good and West Ham were better than us. Since the beginning, we were defensively very bad.
"It was numerous factors. Lack of concentration, anxiety and mistakes.
"No organisation, something we have to look at and improve. We were not able to break them and in the second half very bad."
On improving in future games
The Portuguese boss further spoke of what his side must do to improve going forward when he said: "It is part of the job, we have to go and work harder to find a solution.
"The players must bounce back and react to it. It is about improving what we want to do.
"The solution is inside and what we have to work on. Now, we have to look at the game and the solution is inside. It is (about) improving the players."
On the opener
When commenting on the controversial opening goal, Santo was not sure if it should have stood as he mentioned: "The referee decided. I am not sure if the ball was moving at the moment.
"I thought we must stop the game and not allow a fast free-kick that got us with no organisation, no balance but the game was beyond this.
"The game was more than that. Even after that, it is not an excuse. We must bounce back, maintain shape, things we did not do well. After that, the team did not show composure to stay in the game."
On Wolves defensive display
In the system that Wolves play under Santo, they tend to be solid on the defensive side, but last night that certainly was not the case.
When talking about how his team defended Nuno said: "It was very bad, we defended very bad. We were not organised, winning duels.
"Antonio caused us numerous problems. Each time they went for an attack, it was a chance on goal. We were not playing fast enough, and defensively we made mistakes that they punished."
On Nelson Semedo's debut
Finally, it is fair to say that new right-back Nelson Semedo did not have the most ideal of debuts, and when revealing his thoughts on the Portuguese defender's overall performance, Santo said "He did OK.
"He still needs complicities with teammates, within the idea. All these things we should work on. We do not change our idea."
