Nelson Semedo feels Wolves’ first Premier League clean sheet since October will give the players the confidence to ‘do good things’ during the rest of the top-flight season.
The wing-back impressed during his side’s goalless draw with Chelsea, as Wolves picked up just their second ever Premier League point at Stamford Bridge, and with a return on Saturday against Crystal Palace, Semedo thinks that the point sets the team up as a base to build from.
On a well-earned point against Chelsea
“It was a difficult game, but I guess we did it very well. We knew that it was a game more to defend than to attack, but we did well, and the draw is a good result.
“It’s not a bad result and it gives us confidence to what is coming, as we have a game here in London again against Crystal Palace, and we have the opportunity to win the game.”
On a first clean sheet in 12 Premier League matches
“It was very important not to concede goals today. It’s not easy, they have a very good team and they put us under some trouble on the game.
“But we defended very well and we took a very good point.”
On playing left wing-back in the second-half
“At the beginning of the second-half it was difficult because I’m not used to playing on the left side although I sometimes played there while I was at Barcelona.
“It’s difficult to change your feet and stuff like that, but the guys helped me a lot and they made it easy for me.”
