Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has fitness concerns over six players heading into the season-opener against Wolves on Monday.
Sander Berge (knee) and David McGoldrick (knock) will undergo late fitness tests, while reserve goalkeeper Simon Moore is likely to be out of contention as he continues his recovery from a broken finger.
However, Jack O’Connell (shoulder), Lys Mousset (toe) and Jack Rodwell (match fitness) are all thought to be ready to return ahead of the game at Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:
Ramsdale, Bogle, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Stevens, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Sharp, McBurnie
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be without Jonny Otto after he picked up an anterior cruciate ligament injury last month, while Adama Traore could also be missing after testing positive for COVID-19.
Wolves’ Predicted XI:
Rui Patricio, Sanderson, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Marcal, Moutinho, Neves, Neto, Jimenez, Diogo Jota
The bookmakers have made Wolves the favourites with Unibet pricing them at 29/20 for the win. A draw is 21/10 with William Hill while a victory for the Blades is 12/5 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 1-1
