Boss Nuno Espirito Santo has dismissed fears Wolves will be complacent against FC Pyunik in the Europa League.

The Armenian side come to Molineux tonight trailing 4-0 from the first leg of their third round qualifying tie.

Wolves host Manchester United in the Premier League on Monday but Nuno insisted his men will not switch off against Pyunik.

He said: "They started very strong in the first game, we handled them OK and the moment we scored we started controlling the game. We managed it until the end but Thursday is a new one."

The winners are likely to play Torino in the final play-off to reach the group stage. The Italian side are 5-0 up from their first leg against FC Shakhtyor of Belarus.

Nuno remained tight lipped over his selection but is expected to make changes ahead of their first home match of the season against United next week.

Real Madrid loanee Jesus Vallejo could make his debut while Adama Traore is available after missing the trip to Armenia.
