Jota believes momentum will continue

Diogo Jota believes the end of their unbeaten run won’t see a drop in confident for Wolves, heading into the Christmas period.

The hosts suffered their first defeat in 12 at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday but put in an impressive performance to keep spirits high. With a glut of fixture on the horizons with the Christmas period upon us, Jota believes momentum won’t be too damaged by the Molineux reverse.

On a good performance

I think we probably did one of the best games this season. I think we pressed quite well, we played quite good, but in the final third, the last moment, the last pass, the shot, it wasn’t our best.

“I think we created a lot of chances, not clear chances, but balls in the box, but we couldn’t reach the goal. I think this result is not fair, but this is football.”

On ending the unbeaten run

“Being so long without losing gave us a lot of confidence, we trust each other, I think we did a very good game, one of the best, and we didn’t get the result.

“It’s always hard when you lose, but I think there is a lot of positive things to take from this game. We can’t concede that goal, the corner in the final minute, but we will improve on that and the next game is to win.”

On being a tough team to beat

“We saw the way they celebrated the win after the final whistle. I think it meant a lot for the team to come here and win. In the end that shows that beating us is not an easy thing.

“The other teams, when they are able to do it, they are very pleased. It’s not easy because we lose but are confident to go to the next one to win."

On his personal form

“The last two games we very important to me. Unfortunately, on Sunday I couldn’t help the team scoring, but I was there doing my moves. Now, we are resting to face the next game.”
