Wolves ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal in race for Europa League, claims Jamie O’Hara after 4-0 thrashing of Espanyol
Feb. 21, 2020
Wolves are bigger favourites to win the Europa League this season ahead of Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal, believes Jamie O’Hara.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men put one foot in the last-16 of the competition by thrashing Espanyol 4-0 on Thursday night .
It was a stunning performance, as Diogo Jota scored a fine hat-trick and Ruben Neves netted a stunning volley from outside of the box in their last 32 first leg clash at Molineux.
The result continues what has been a remarkable season in Europe for the club, who had to play SIX qualifying games – winning them all – just to make the group stage, and then qualified for the knockout round by winning four of their six group matches.
Elsewhere on the night, Manchester United could only draw 1-1 with Club Brugge, Arsenal sealed a late 1-0 win over Olympiakos and Rangers came back from 2-0 down to beat Braga 3-2 at Ibrox.
But O’Hara claims Wolves are the best British team left in the competition and has hailed the club’s transformation under their new owners and manager.
The former Wanderers midfielder told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast : “I genuinely think Wolves are the favourites of all the British teams to go and win it.
“I think they’re the best British team left – Wolves are better than Manchester United and Arsenal.
“The changes I’ve seen there since the new owners and new manager have come in and the regime they’ve brought into the club is nothing short of incredible.
“The philosophy they’ve got now as a club is absolutely amazing, the way they play, the players they’ve brought in.
“When I played for Wolves we were in the Premier League but we were nowhere near where they are now.
“We were a good side, we hustled and bustled, we tied to stay up and we had some good players, but the squad they’ve got there a now and the depth they’ve got it’s amazing.”
