FLW Duels

Trumped in nearly every department: The player duel that reflected Wolves 3-0 Sheffield Utd

Published

Wolves are firmly back on the winning trail after following their victory over Ipswich up with a controlled performance against Sheffield United.

After a below par January by their high standards the men from Molineux are firmly back in the swing of things as they cruised past their visitors on Saturday evening.

It was a game where the league leaders’ potential Premier League class shone through and that was demonstrated none more so than the battle in midfield.

Indeed, in our first FLW Duels feature, we’ve compared Ruben Neves’ performance to that of John Fleck in the middle of the park and the former wins pretty much all ends up:

The Portuguese is arguably the best player in the league, of course, so it’s perhaps never going to be too fair in comparing another player to him.

Even so, he still has to deliver the goods and that he surely did on Saturday with a goal, 89 passes and even two tackles – underlining an all action display.

Fleck, meanwhile, surprisingly made no tackles – despite his usual combative self – made fewer passes and less dribbles than his opposing midfielder.

It was a tough game all round for the Blades, Fleck included, as they, like so many sides have found out this season, simply got outclassed by the brilliant Neves and co.

Thoughts, Wolves and Blades fans? Let us know below!
