Sheffield United's Irish defensive pairing Enda Stevens and John Egan got their new Premier League season off to a disappointing start with a 2-0 defeat at home to Wolves.

Sheffield United's Irish duo John Egan (far right) and Enda Stevens (second from right) appear dejected during the Premier League defeat to Wolves at Bramall Lane, Sheffield.



While Stevens and Egan started in the evening kick-off at Bramall Lane, the third member of the Blades' Irish trinity, striker David McGoldrick was named on the substitutes bench.



Firstly, after only three minutes, Wolves hit the front through an excellent finish from Raul Jimenez.

From Pedro Neto's resulting corner, Romain Saiss headed home.

Egan, the injury-time match-winner in this fixture last season in July, was unable to repeat those heroics as he headed wide from a corner, before McBurnie saw his header cleared off the line by Saiss in added time.

Uncharacteristic mistakes and a slack start ultimately cost Wilder's team, making it an uphill struggle from the start, but the Blades also looked laboured and predictable going forward in the first half.
