Wolves secure hard-fought 1-0 win against Sheffield United

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Wolves defeated Sheffield United, the bottom team in the Premier League, at Molineux thanks to a header from Pablo Sarabia in the first half.

The Spain winger scored his third goal of the season for the home team by flicking a left-wing delivery from Rayan Ait-Nouri into the upper right corner while going completely unmarked.

With the win, Gary O’Neil’s team moves up to eighth place in the standings and increases their chances of playing in Europe the following season.

Sarabia’s header was the only effort on goal for Wolves until Joao Gomes’ late penalty kick. It was by no means a classic performance from the team, as their resolute opponents sat deep and tried to break quickly.

And while the result may not have satisfied manager Chris Wilder, the way the Blades performed will have, as his team created multiple excellent chances.

Sheffield United’s two greatest opportunities fell to James McAtee. Nevertheless, Wolves custodian Jose Sa comfortably stopped a meek first-half effort from the Manchester City midfielder on loan, and he fizzed a second-half shot just past of the bottom right corner.

Rhian Brewster also had a chance to equalise after McAtee’s left-wing cross, but the forward, who had earlier sent a shot wildly wide from a decent position, was unable to get it past Portugal custodian Sa.

But when Vinicius Souza and Jack Robinson, two of his players, squared up, Wilder would not have been happy.

But when Vinicius Souza and Jack Robinson, two of Wilder’s players, squared up to one other and jostled during the first half, it was clear that the coach was not happy.

The visitors, who are currently eight points outside of safety and seem to be losing more and more games, were embarrassed by the incident.
