Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has urged his squad to maintain their focus as they gear up for a busy run of fixtures. The West Midlands outfit return to domestic action on Saturday with a trip to Burnley before hosting Manchester United next Tuesday.
They play their third game in eight days on Sunday, April 7 when they head to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final clash with Watford. Wolves are hoping to hold on to seventh spot in the Premier League over the remaining weeks although there is a danger they could become distracted by the FA Cup.

Nuno has stressed the importance of maintaining their focus on both fronts and has played down concerns over fatigue. “We go game-by-game, so we cannot allow ourselves to get distracted and not allow ourselves to not do our things right,” Nuno told Wolves’ official website.
“It helps [having the focus of a semi-final and league targets], but it doesn’t change. We do what we did before and the routine, philosophy is clear, and we just have to continue playing. “It’s tough but it’s about anticipating well, preparing the players well for the cycle ahead of us and then, as the game goes by, we know there is a tough cycle.
“Three games in a week requires a lot of effort, a lot of energy, and we have to prepare well, but also recover well after the game. The way we allow players to recover from their games to be ready again is basic. “But we know it’s going to be a tough challenge, three games in a week is tough.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
