Leicester win could be catalyst, says Dendoncker

Leander Dendoncker is hopeful that Saturday's extraordinary 4-3 victory over Leicester City can be the catalyst for an improved run of form at home for Wolves.

Despite a hugely impressive first season back in the top flight, Wolves' form at Molineux has been patchy of late, and Nuno Espirito Santo's men had lost five of the previous seven home league games prior to the clash with the Foxes.

Turning that record completely on its head, Wolves raced into a two-goal lead on Saturday, only to be pegged back and eventually win the game in the most dramatic of circumstances as Diogo Jota netted the game's decisive seventh goal deep into injury time. Dendoncker, who took up a midfield role alongside Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho, shared his thoughts post-match.

On a dramatic game

"The game had a lot of goals and a high intensity, so I think it was entertaining for everyone in the stadium. We used the support of our fans and we have to try to do that every time we play at home.

"There was a lot of emotion in the game today, but we know that when we are at our best we can compete with anyone. We have to try to keep winning our home games - to make the best of our home support and to be strong and fight, game-by-game."

On the twists and turns

"I think we controlled the game in the first half, and created a lot of chances. We scored our two goals and we maybe could have scored a third at the end of the first half.

"They had some chances too though, and then we didn't start the second half very well and they got their goals back quite quickly. Maybe that was down to a lack of concentration from us, so we have to work on that - on our concentration and organisation.

"The third from them was quite late in the game, but we kept going and managed to score the winner, so I think we deserved the win."

On Jota’s treble

"He works very hard on and off the ball. You can always give him the ball and he will do something with it. Today he was very important for us with his movement, his speed and the way he finds the spaces very well."
