Wolves to pile the misery on Sheffield United

Time appears to be running out for Sheffield United in the Premier League, but they have shown that it isn’t over yet. The Blades are bottom of the table, seven points from safety having won just three of their opening 25 games. However, things could have been so much worse had they not beat relegation rivals Luton earlier in February. That victory has kept Sheffield United in it, and they are also level on points with 19th-placed Burnley.

Goal difference is keeping Sheffield United at the bottom, and it’s been a poor season both defensively and in attack. The Blades are the lowest scorers in the Premier League with 22 goals, while they’ve also conceded a league-high 65 — 10 more than any other team. The victory over Luton also ended Sheffield United’s long wait for an away win in the Premier League, but they could only follow it up with a 5-0 thrashing at home to Brighton; their second defeat in succession at home by that scoreline.

Wolves, meanwhile, went on a four-game unbeaten run in the Premier League including three wins, which lifted them up the table. Having flirted with the relegation battle, Wolves were comfortable and they still are, sitting 15 points clear of the drop zone. In that run, Wolves beat Chelsea, Brentford and Everton before drawing against Brighton.

The unbeaten run came to an end in a 4-3 defeat to Manchester United at Molineux, which came via an injury-time winner after Wolves had fought back late on, looking to have earned themselves a point. However, they’ve bounced back with impressive away wins at Chelsea (4-2) and Tottenham (2-1) either side of a more disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Brentford.

Wolves vs Sheffield United match tip

Highest scoring half: 2nd @ 11/10 by BetGoodwin

Wolves have been pretty slow starters in the Premier League this season, scoring just 13 goals in the first halves of their matches. Sheffield United are, of course, the worst team in the first half with just nine goals scored — the only club yet to hit double figures. However, they do bump up their goals to 13 after the break. Wolves, meanwhile, have scored 26 goals in the second half this season while also conceding 24.

Wolves may have lost their last two Premier League home games, but Molineux has generally been a tough place to come this season. Manchester City, Tottenham and Newcastle have all failed to win away at Wolves, while Manchester United just about scraped through their 4-3 victory. So it’s understandable to see Wolves as favourites, especially when you factor in Sheffield United’s form away from home. The Blades did actually get their first away victory of the Premier League season on their last trip, beating Luton, having lost nine of their opening 11 games on the road.

Sheffield United’s injury woes just seem to be getting worse. They have no fewer than five players definitely out injured with another three doubts. Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Chris Basham are all out for the season, while John Egan could make it back by the end of the campaign. There will be hopes that Ben Brereton Diaz and Cameron Archer can feature after they missed last weekend’s games due to injury. Mason Holgate is suspended after his straight red card against Brighton last time out.
