Wolves boss in bullish mood ahead of Tottenham clash

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo has warned friend Mauricio Pochettino that Wolves are ready to derail their title challenge.

Spurs have hit 11 goals in their last two games and host Wolves on Saturday aiming to close the gap to Premier League leaders Liverpool.

They are second, six points behind the Reds having won seven of their last eight league outings.

Pochettino has said he likes the way Wolves play but Nuno insisted his side are not prepared to just roll over.

He said: “I really enjoy watching Tottenham play. I am very thankful for the compliment and it shows the world what we have been trying to do in creating an identity but it doesn’t mean we will go there with a smile.

“We will go there to compete. They are in a very good moment, 11 goals in two matches in a very busy moment of the season.

“They are doing very well, it shows the quality of the squad, of the management and we look at Tottenham knowing it’s going to be hard game.

“We have to fear all the teams in the Premier League. We have to respect and know the opponent has all the qualities.”

Nuno also spent time with Pochettino at Hotspur Way after he left Valencia in 2015 and struck up a relationship with the Argentinian.

He said: “It was after I worked in Valencia and I went to Porto, it was then I spent a day with Mauricio and the staff. I really enjoyed it and I appreciated it. Since then we’ve established a relationship, it’s very nice.”
