Jamie O'Hara is backing Wolverhampton Wanderers to progress the furthest out of all the British sides left in the Europa League.

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Jamie O'Hara believes that Nuno Espirito Santo's side are bigger favourites to win the Europa League than fellow Premier League sides Manchester United and Arsenal.

Wolves' dominant display at Molineux last night in a 4-0 thrashing of Espanyol means they have one foot firmly set in the last 16 of the competition.

Elsewhere, Manchester United could only muster a 1-1 draw away to Club Brugge while Arsenal defeated Olympiacos 1-0 in Greece, but O'Hara, who turned out for Wolves between 2011 and 2014, is backing his former club to progress the furthest in Europe.

O'Hara 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."

Santo's side will take on Norwich City before the return leg with Espanyol in Spain next Thursday.
