Quickfire goals seal Wolves victory

Sheffield Utd v Wolves

Early strikes from Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss give Wolves a 2-0 win at Sheffield United

Two quickfire goals from Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss gave Wolverhampton Wanderers a 2-0 opening-weekend victory at Sheffield United - their first win in Yorkshire since 1981.

Jimenez put the visitors ahead on three minutes, connecting with Daniel Podence's sublime delivery from the left to guide a volley into the roof of the net.

Only 205 seconds later, Wolves struck again.

Blades goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale did brilliantly to deny Jimenez a second but Saiss rose highest from Pedro Neto's subsequent corner to plant a firm header home.

Chris Wilder's Blades, who had never lost an opening match in the Premier League, worked hard to try to claw their way back into contention. 

John Fleck hit the post on 52 minutes and George Baldock's effort was blocked soon after but there was to be no way through against a well-organised Wolves side.
