Bully: Wolves are ready for Man United

By Steve Bull | Wolves | Published:

Wolves warmed up nicely for this Saturday's big match with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday.


I know some people think it was a bit boring, especially in the first half, but I thought it was a masterclass from Wolves in how to stifle and frustrate a top team.

Nuno Espirito Santo put his best XI out and they were so organised all over the pitch.

Raul Jimenez scored yet again, making it 14 for the season, after another combination with Diogo Jota.

They're becoming a prolific partnership – they've developed an understanding of how each other plays, where they're going to be on the field and where they want their passes played.

They're absolutely flying at the moment and you can see the comparison starting between Richards and Dougan, or myself and Andy Mutch.

Jimenez had a few doubters to start with and to be fair he missed a few chances in the first half of the season.

That was all that was missing from his game. His work rate is unbelievable, he's skilful, he's unselfish, he's got almost everything.

Now that he's started scoring goals regularly, he's become the whole package.


You can see that he really believes in himself and he's taking his chance in the Premier League.

He's adapted to the league and to Wolves' style and you'd fancy him to bang a few more in before the end of the season – hopefully on Saturday!

It was just frustrating that we gave Eden Hazard a chance to produce that magical moment to equalise in the 92nd minute.

For me he's one of the world's best players, he's a proper talent, and one chance – which wasn't even a chance for most players – is all he needs.


We've scored a few late goals this season and this time the shoe was on the other foot.

We hadn't even scored at Stamford Bridge since 2004 so to earn a point, well we'd have taken that all day long.

We were a bit down in the dumps after losing at Huddersfield but four points from Cardiff and Chelsea have got us back on track for the big one this weekend.
