Lys Mousset: Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder praises striker for ‘outstanding’ performances
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder hails summertime signing Lys Mousset as”outstanding” and”phenomenal” following the striker’s recent superstar performances.
Mousset arrived from Bournemouth in July for approximately #10m, using just 3 goals in 56 Premier League appearances.
However, the Frenchman has been under Wilder, scoring four goals that effort, for example a long-time effort at the 3-3 draw against Manchester United on Sunday in exceptional form.
Mousset limped off with a hamstring difficulty during the second half, however Wilder confirmed:”He is recovered, thankfully. We all feared the worst if Lys hauled up. He’s been outstanding for us.
“Lys has been outstanding for us in his performances so when he went down we were thinking’oh dear’ since we were just about to make that substitution as he’d ran out of gas. The quantity of effort that he put into that game was incredible, so we’re thrilled he’ll be concerned about Sunday.”
“There is fierce competition behind him. There’s fierce competition behind the gamers that is keeping everybody on their feet and making performances are produced by them.
“The coverage of the Premier League is enormous and international, but we are playing well as a staff, we’re playing the way I wanted them to play and Lys is a large part of that.
Sunday’s draw with United was the first step stage the Blades have picked up against a’big six’ side this effort, leaving them in the Premier League table with 18 points from their 13 fixtures.
Wilder insists this club’s mentality has changed following their promotion from the Championship last season and was frustrated to not beat at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s facet having headed until 72 moments.
He explained:”If you’re 2-0 up with 20 minutes to go and in control, you’re obviously disappointed. But sometimes you’ve got to have a step backwards and look at the total group performance.
“If we’d have thought [Manchester United’s] third goal, I’d have been saying and saying’that is an excellent goal’.
“What pleased me is obviously the response of the players since it was disappointing they had put themselves in a winning position, but that is the Premier League.
“I did believe and feel that there was an equaliser coming and we’re delighted to get it. We have to accept that we are up against a few special players at times.”
The Blades and Wolves trip with on Sunday, hoping for a win which would see them leapfrog their competitors in to fifth.
Despite it being just their second season in the top flight since marketing nuno Espirito Santo’s staff have shown themselves as a force in Europe and the Premier League this season, also Wilder takes inspiration.
Wilder included:”Nuno has done a great job . I believe it is not the same club into the clubs that are promoted since they were set for the Premier League if they were in the Championship and I do believe they were set for top 10 when they moved in the Premier League.
“To finish in the top 10 is a great achievement. They have still got to win games of soccer as much as the investment and also the way that they’re playing hold of.
“This goes down to the supervisor and everything he instils from the gamers, the way in which the play. I am an excellent admirer of him.
“Their travel is a wonderful one. You look at each of the teams that play with Europa League football and it does take its toll, as you are straight in to matches in terms of prep when you begin the season.
“But they appear to have come through it with flying colours and clearly put themselves in a position that they deserve to maintain.”
