Sheffield United vs Liverpool: Nunez accused of foul play, video clears all rumours

Sheffield United

Dermot Gallagher disagreed with Chris Wilder’s assessment that Darwin Nunez had illegally tackled Jayden Bogle during Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United.

The Uruguayan had assisted Dominik Szoboszlai’s lead-doubling goal at Bramall Lane immediately after, securing the Reds their 10th league win of the season.

The former official adjudged the striker to have won the ball first before taking out the man, insisting: “He’s won the ball, he’s quite clearly won the ball. He gets all of the ball, he gets lots of ball, he gets the ball before he makes contact with Bogle.”

Hence the matter was resolved there. Jurgen Klopp’s men secured a clean and easy victory.

However before the match, Sheffield United coach Speaking to reporters (via Yorkshire Post), Wilder said with an initial tongue-in-cheek remark:

Thanks very much for the fixture! 30-odd thousand at Bramall Lane on a Wednesday night under the lights against arguably one of the best teams in Europe is a tough start, but it’s one we are going to attack and have a right go.“

“That’s going to be the attitude from me and the players, to ignite the supporters as there’s been a bit of a disconnect, especially over the last two games. We’re in it for a reason and have got to enjoy the challenge and that’s my message to the players.

We’ve got to set the ball rolling to connect with those supporters because, as we all know, under the lights at Bramall Lane is a fabulous place to go and play football and we’ve nothing to lose. We’ve got to earn the trust of the supporters back.”

Klopp on Chris Wilder appt ahead of match with Sheffield United:

“I obviously remember the way they played under Wilder, overlapping wing-backs. That was part of it. We can probably bin our analysis. We will see, we have to focus on ourselves. I don’t think he will change too much, what can he change already?”
