Official: Sheffield United says goodbye to the Premier League after the 26th loss

Sheffield United have officially dropped out of the Premier League. This became a fact after the 26th loss of the season. This time Sheffield lost 0-1 away to Wolverhampton. Thus, the team remains with 14 points - 19 out of 17th place in the standings, and by the end of the championship there are 6 matches.

Thus, Sheffield entered the negative history of the Premier League as one of the teams relegated earlier in the season. The team equaled this indicator with Ipswich (1994-95), Derby County (2007-08) and Huddersfield (2018-19), all of which officially dropped 6 rounds before the end of the championship.


The only goal in the match was scored by Willian Jose in the 60th minute. He received a pass from Adam Traore and managed to score the winning goal. This was Traore's second assist, and he also scored 1 goal in the last 3 games of the team. Prior to that, the player played 35 "dry" matches without a goal or assist.

In general, the guests from Sheffield behaved quite equally to their host and even surpassed the opponent in possession of the ball. However, the "Wolves" created more goal positions.
