Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo says he is proud of the identity his side have developed over the past three years as they prepare for a first European quarter-final appearance in 48 years.

The Molineux club play Sevilla on Tuesday knowing they are three wins away from winning the Europa League.

It is an impressive rise for a side that had just finished 15th in the Championship when Nuno arrived in 2017.

"The foundations are strong," he said.

"I am very proud. Now I think we can see we have our own identity, which is based on strong foundations of respect and hard work.

"This is what we show against Sevilla - a good team, with a strong identity and committed to the challenge."

Tuesday's game will be Wolves' 59th of a season that started on 25 July last year.

Despite the high volume of games, Nuno's side have showed few signs of tiredness. They secured seventh in the Premier League after football's restart and head into the Sevilla game on the back of only one defeat in their past five fixtures.

"They're resilient," said Nuno of his players. "There hasn't been one day where the group hasn't been committed.

"This is a special group of players, no doubt about it."

'This will be like a final'

Wolves will be without Jonny for the Sevilla game, with the wing-back set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury.

The Spaniard damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in last Thursday's 1-0 win over Olympiakos.

Sevilla will be a tough test for Wolves with the Spanish side, who are currently coached by Julen Lopetegui, having won the Europa League five times since 2007.

"We know they have won the tournament before but it's a different tournament now with just one leg," said Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.

"It's hard for every team. There are very good teams in the tournament so it's a completely different way to play the Europa League.

"It will be like a final for us and for Sevilla. I hope we can go through to the semis."

Cinciwolf to be fair I think we create an average of 20 chances per Europa League match. We probably broke the record for most chances missed in the Europa League since our 16/17 season record lol.

We should have scored 8 against Copenhagen and about 6 against Sevilla and that is from the simple chances. Even when we put 5 past LASK we missed about 5 sitters.

Spangled they were not hard to beat. Just wasteful finishing cost us.

Cinci we missed about 20 chances against Man City home and away. I don’t think we do finishing practice. Only Martial and Greenwood have played well for us but they had a nightmare in front of goal.

This season our stats are nearly identical to Liverpool but we finished 33 points behind them. We drew 12 and lost 8 league games this season and I reckon our shot count probably in those 20 league games were 300 shots for and 130 against. These last 2 games weren’t one offs, they happened regularly all season.

One thing I do know for sure is De Gea is the worst keeper at the club and cost us all 3 semi-finals.

Seville are hard to beat. There is a hint in that they haven’t lost any of their last 17 games.

How many goals Utd should have scored is not quite as relevant as how many goals they have scored. Having a lot of shots doesn’t make them a good team. Last night they kept shooting straight at the keeper, that doesn’t mean they deserved to score, and saying their record is identical to Liverpool is laughable delusion

If you are looking for a scapegoat for last night then De Gea is the wrong man. Van Bissaka’s defending was woeful

As if De Gea is being blamed for last night.

Reading that in 19/20 Man Utd set a new record for the number of penalties awarded to a club

Have to agree with Hafi regarding last night, looked to me as though United were the better side and in reality should have won the game. We would be mighty frustrated today had that been us.

Personally i am just a little disappointed watching it thinking what we could have done if we had actually tried to attack even just a teeny bit, we have the players to do so but played right into their hands and left with a whimper.
