Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo praised his side’s performance after they overcame Armenian outfit FC Pyunik 4-0 in Europa League qualifying on Thursday.

The Molineux outfit claimed an 8-0 win on aggregate thanks to goals from Pedro Neto, Morgan Gibbs-White, Ruben Vinagre and Diogo Jota in the second leg and are 19.00 to win the Europa League outright.

Wolves may have claimed two comprehensive wins over the Armenians, but Nuno insists the two-legged affair was a tough assignment for his side. “No, it wasn’t easy,” he said.

“Pyunik started the game very well again. I’ve spoken to their coach and wish them all the best for the future. “I thought all my players did a very good job, not just the new players. The second-half display was very good.

“It was a good game. I think we started the game normally because some players take more time. As the game went by we started performing better and the second half was very, very good. “I am pleased with all the team, all the players did a very good job.”

Wolves will take on Italian outfit Torino in the Europa League play-offs and head to Turin for the first leg next week, with the winners earning a spot in the group stage of the European competition.

Wolves host Manchester United in the Premier League on Monday and they are 3.30 to secure a victory. United can be backed at 2.30 and a draw is on offer at 3.25.
