Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo vowed his side will keep striving to find improvements following their 3-0 Sky Bet Championship win against 10-man Sheffield United at Molineux.

Two goals in the first half hour from Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota and a second-half free-kick from Ivan Cavaleiro ensured that Wolves opened up an 11-point lead at the top of the table.

Promotion looks within touching distance but Nuno said: "It is how we play to make it better: I know that I have to find solutions to make it better.

"We have a long, long way to go and everyone knows that. It is the philosophy from day one to now and nothing will change until the end.

"We prepare and work the same way over and over again because this is what we want: we want to build something. Nobody is going to relax."

Nuno was pleased with how United were dismantled and he added: "It was a good performance in all aspects: offensively, defensively, with the ball, without the ball. It was a very good game.

"We have been working a few weeks now really, really well and the spirit of the team is stronger.

"When a goal goes in of course I am happy. I am the happiest man in the stadium. Every moment of my life is to enjoy what I do. I am a positive guy."

United manager Chris Wilder, whose side had to play the final 17 minutes with 10 men after goalkeeper Simon Moore was sent off for a challenge on Jota, admitted the visitors had been beaten by the better team.

Wilder said: "We have got no complaints. They are a fantastic side and they have done it to other teams as much as they have done it to us. We stuck at it and tried to find a way to get back but they had too much for us on the day.

"But I have got to say when we stepped into the division people talked about this happening to us every three or four games and it has taken until February 3 for someone to do that to us."
