Sheffield United v Wolves Premier League predictions: Tips, odds and team news
Sheffield United and Wolves face off in a Premier League showdown at Bramall Lane on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).
Sheffield United vs Wolves odds
*Odds correct as of 17:00 on November 03
As the only side without a win in the Premier League so far this season and just one point on the board, Sheffield United will need to pick things up quickly if they want to avoid heading straight back down to the Championship. Manager Paul Heckingbottom has now lost 16 of his 20 Premier League games in charge, with only Mick McCarthy ever losing more of his first 20 games in Premier League history (17). The Blades have conceded 47 goals in his 20 games and 29 goals in their first 10 Premier League matches this season, the most ever by a Premier League side at this stage of a campaign.
Wolves, meanwhile, are currently on a five game unbeaten run in the Premier League after a tough start. Gary O’Neil’s side twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw against Newcastle last time out, adding to recent victories over Man City and Bournemouth as well as draws against Luton and Aston Villa. They now have a seven point cushion between them and the relegation spots, with fans now looking up the table rather than down after recent impressive displays.

Sheffield United vs Wolves match tip
Hwang Hee-chan (6 goals, 1 assist) and Pedro Neto (1 goal, 7 assists) have scored the goal or provided the assist for all 12 of Wolves’ Premier League goals so far this season and after the Portuguese winger’s recent injury, the pressure of being Wolves’ main now falls firmly on the shoulders of the South Korean. Hwang has already set a new personal best for goals in a Premier League tally, after already beating his tally from 2021/22 (5 goals in 30 appearances) after just 10 matches so far this campaign.
