Last season was the least successful, they finished the Premier League 7th, but without a Europa League spot and fell in the quarter-finals of the European competition. His low cross into the penalty area was expertly steered home by Raul Jimenez from 12 yards out. The goal came from a familiar source -- the club's top scorer last season Jimenez -- and 205 seconds later they scored again as Saiss headed in a corner to stun the hosts.

The striker nearly doubled Wolves' lead two minutes later after he latched on to a precise cross inside the box, before controlling and unleashing a hard shot only to be denied by Aaron Ramsdale in goal.

Skipper Conor Coady hailed Nuno's impact on the team's performance after limited training time.

"It is massive for us", he said.

"Now, we are standing at the door to a new cycle".

A club-record £35million was spent on 18-year-old forward Fabio Silva from FC Porto, while midfielder Vitinha has joined on loan from the same club and defender Marcal has signed from Lyon for £1.8m.

While Wolves were dynamic, fluid and enterprising in attack, especially during the first half, the Blades were totally out of sorts by contrast.

"Now, for example, if our players go to big, big clubs in the Premier League, it's a sign that they have been working good and hard, so they look at options to become players of top six teams". Wolves' executive chairman Jeff Shi commented: "We are thrilled to partner with Aeroset ahead of another exciting season of Premier League football".

Consequently, as it has been shown in particular since their promotion back to the Premier League in 2018, playing with this certain mindset and identity has helped guide them to another victory. We said we wanted to enjoy defending when we had that lead. "It's from where you build from and where you've started".
