'Knocking on the door of the national team?' - Blades fans sing praises of Lys Mousset again

United flew out of the traps at Molineux and were in front inside two minutes. Lys Mousset was the man on hand to score again, firing in low for his fifth goal of the season.

Chris Wilder’s men perhaps should have been more than one goal to the good at half-time, too. Mousset was involved, but twice failed to pick the right pass with the Blades in good positions.

However, there could be no grumbles from the Blades boss really. A spirited half hour from Wolves pushed United back in the second half. In the end, a point was probably a fair result.


But, once again, it was French striker Lys Mousset who stole the show for Sheffield United. The summer signing from Bournemouth was once again in fine form throughout the day.

Despite the couple of missed opportunities to play in his teammates, Mousset’s performance was excellent. He was one of the star performers on the day and deserved his goal again.

Blades fans have quickly become accustomed to loving Mousset and they were once again out in their droves following the game to sing his praises.

Twitter was awash with comments praising the striker’s display…


The fantasy football world seemed to be pleased with Mousset too. Lots of people were singing his praises and speaking of how they were going to opt for him in their teams going forward…

Our view on Mousset

The calls for international recognition are a bit far off given the strength of the French squad. However, Mousset is going in the right direction.

There is a reason Eddie Howe signed him and a reason why Chris Wilder parted with £10m for him too.

His goals are doing the talking at the moment but Mousset’s overall play has been superb. His pace, movement, and the threat he brings on the break are crucial for United.
