Nuno Espirito Santo

insists that they do not have a mentality problem but they do need to find a solution in the absence of

Raul Jimenez

especially after their 4-0 defeat against


on Sunday.

It was their first match without Jimenez since he fractured his skull in the game against Arsenal.

Jimenez has played an important role in the


’ growth since their return to

Premier League

in 2018.

“The result is a consequence of the performance and today we didn’t perform well,” Nuno said. “We started the game well but we were never comfortable in the game.

“We were not well enough with possession of the ball and we created half chances, not chances.

“Not having Raul is a blow but we must find solutions inside of the team so we can keep on progressing. That is the situation now so it is up to us to find the right solutions.

“It is not mentality, I think we were not able to deal with the pressing of Liverpool.”

It might have been a different result for Wolves had they had their penalty towards the end of the second half. The referee changed his decision after he checked with VAR.

It was the first game with fans at Anfield since Liverpool became Premier League champions and Nuno believes the presence of fans can make a difference as they are yet to play in front of their own fans.

“Fans always give something to the players,” he said. “We want our fans back home and hopefully these things will be reviewed.”
