Sheffield United’s inevitable relegation from the Premier League was confirmed as Wolves sealed their fate with a 1-0 victory at Molineux on Saturday.

Willian Jose’s first Premier League goal at the 12th attempt condemned the Blades to a sixth successive league defeat which leaves them rooted to the foot of the table, 19 points from safety with just 18 points left to play for.

Sheffield United’s two-season stay in the top flight ended with a performance packed full of heart, but crucially lacking end product, as an arduous campaign saw the Blades become the fourth team in Premier League history to be sent down to the Championship at the 32-game mark.

For Wolves, Willian Jose’s breaking his duck for the club and back-to-back league victories for the first time since February offered hope for improvement in the future, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side moved to within four points of the top half.
