Head coach Bruno Lage was unable to hide his delight after Wolverhampton Wanderers pulled off a stunning comeback to beat Aston Villa by a 3-2 scoreline.

Bruno Lage acknowledged that he has been left craving more dramatic wins as Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach after witnessing his team stun Aston Villa.

Wolves were well on their way to a 2-0 defeat when the game at Villa Park entered the closing stages, Lage not even calling upon a jaded Raul Jimenez at that stage.

However, Romain Saiss and Conor Coady got the visitors on level terms before Ruben Neves's 94th-minute free kick earned Wolves one of their most famous victories of the Premier League era.

Speaking after the 3-2 triumph in the West Midlands, Lage suggested that Wolves had deserved their bit of luck after fortune was against them during their opening three league games.

The Portuguese is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "I think it was these games I want to continue [having in] my career in England. It was until the 94th minute. It is the kind of environment I want and want to live. We don't deserve to lose. I don't think Villa deserve to lose. It was a good game, a good performance, I think we created a lot of problems for Villa.

"At 2-0 down we put the guys in front. It's more difficult to mark, we created spaces and in the same way, we had some luck. These three points are very good for us.

"Every time I believe. It's easy for me to say now I made the right choice. It's easy to say 'I was right' when you win. But you have to take decisions. The other players who start or come on, help the team to win three points.

"We did three good performances in the first three games but did not get any points. The confidence came with hard work. The players are seeing what we are doing and with victories."

Wolves have moved into eighth position in the Premier League standings, while Villa have dropped down into 12th place.
