Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves admits his team were not performing well and should have lost 2-1 to Arsenal. Invaded by the “big guns” again in three weeks, beating 2-1 by Jose Sarr’s own goal in the last minute.
“To be honest we really didn’t deserve to win,” Neves said after the game.
“We had good chances to score a lot of goals but we didn’t play well. They forced us to back down the whole game after 1-0 and we could only defend.
Wolves star Ruben Neves admitted his side did not deserve to beat Arsenal after their late heartbreak at the Emirates.
The Gunners edged a 1-0 win at Molineux earlier this month and Neves angered fans by claiming they “celebrated like they had won the league”.
But those celebrations were dwarfed by the jubilant scenes at the Emirates after Jose Sa’s stoppage time own goal completed a late comeback for Mikel Arteta’s side. the ufabet report
Wolves had led for most of the game after Hwang Hee-chan’s early opener – but they were unable to hold on after soaking up pressure.
And Neves conceded the better team won after he had felt hard done by at Molineux a few weeks ago.
We have to deal with the ball better against these teams.
“It’s an important game for us and the whole league. But this is the Premier League and everyone can miss points. We have to look at each game one by one. We will go back and review ourselves and do better.”
