Six minutes was enough for Wolverhampton Wanderers to beat Sheffield United in the first round of the Premier League. In a flashy opening phase the formation of Portuguese coach Nuno came 2-0. That was all.
Mexican Raúl Jiménez (3rd minute) and Moroccan Romain Saïss (6th) were the goalkeepers. Since May 1982 Wolverhamtpon had not been leading 2-0 at the highest English level. At the time, West Ham also managed to do so after six minutes, by scoring goals from Melvyn Eves and John Richards.
Nuno Espirito Santo recently extended his contract as coach at Wolverhampton Wanderers by three years. The 46-year-old Nuno has started his fourth season at the club. In his first year, he led the Wolves back to the Premier League.
