Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will refuse to ditch his philosophy in order to upset Manchester City.

The Premier League new boys host the champions at Molineux on Saturday looking for their first win of the season.

Wolves lost 2-0 to 10-man Leicester last week after an opening day 2-2 draw with Everton, who also had Phil Jagielka dismissed.

But Nuno will refuse to alter his beliefs despite the frustration following their loss at Leicester.

He said: “We don’t know how to play another way. There are two ways to react to Leicester, we react by changing or not. We will not change because we want to build something.

“It’s important we keep doing the same thing we train to do, as we want to achieve.

“Adapt, of course, because you are facing a good team, but don’t change. When you build something you have to truly believe in what you’re doing.”

Nuno could hand a full debut to £18million record signing Adama Traore while midfielder Leander Dendoncker is close to full fitness after arriving from Anderlecht in the summer.

A three-goal win for City would be their best start to a Premier League season after they beat Huddersfield 6-1 last weekend.

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in their Etihad romp but Nuno knows Wolves cannot afford to focus just on the striker.

He said: “I think every player in the squad of Manchester City has a lot of quality and talent. It’s not only about one.

“It’s everyone we have to be worried about but they have to be worried about us.”
