Sheffield United 0-2 Wolves: Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss on target inside first six minutes

2 min read

Wolves kickstarted the new Premier League campaign in stunning fashion after two goals in the first six minutes at Sheffield United handed them a winning start.

Raul Jimenez gave Nuno Espirito Santo’s men the lead after just three minutes at Bramall Lane, clinically firing home from Daniel Podence’s delivery following fine work from the winger down the left.

And it was soon two-nil. Pedro Neto’s corner was met by a towering header from Romain Saiss, who was able to guide his effort beyond the helpless Aaron Ramsdale.

More to follow.
