Wolves vs Sheffield Utd: Predictions
It’s been a disappointing campaign for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, who are stuck down in 12th place, six points adrift of Aston Villa in 11th and nowhere near the race for European qualification. That said, Wolves will still be keen on pushing toward the top half of the table, while only a victory will be considered good enough against Sheffield Utd this weekend.
That’s because the Blades remain rooted to the bottom of the table with just 14 points from 31 games so far. Since a shock 1-0 win over Aston Villa at the start of March, Sheffield Utd have lost each of their five games across all competitions, scoring just one goal along the way. 18 points now separate them from Newcastle in 17th and it’s now simply a case of playing for pride and counting down the days until their relegation back to the Championship is confirmed.
