Chelsea played a goalless draw against Wolves on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge in Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of the Blues despite dominating the game with 79 per cent of possession.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admitted after the game that he was happy with his team’s defensive performance against Chelsea and claims that was ‘what the game needed’.

Nuno said: “I am proud, everything starts from there, today we were a compact team, organised, bodies in front of the ball, doing everything to prevent Chelsea, we had chances but can do better.

“We were organised, closed the pockets, the line of the ball was always covered. Clean sheet, I am happy with the way the boys committed to the idea.

“We had a couple of chances but the game is more than that. That will come because the commitment is there. This is a starting point.

“We recognised we wouldn’t have too much of the ball but that’s what the game needed.”
