The manner of Sheffield United’s 3-0 home defeat to Arsenal last Sunday would have disappointed caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom hugely. The Blades were simply second best all over the park.
His side travel to Molineux tomorrow to face a Wolves team who won away from home against Fulham last time out, so Nuno Espirito Santo’s men would have taken confidence from that victory.
In terms of team news, United are hoping to have Chris Basham back from injury, but captain Billy Sharp (thigh), Oli McBurnie (foot), Sander Berge (fitness), Jack O’Connell (knee) and Jack Robinson will all be missing.
Sheffield United’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:
Ramsdale, Baldock, Ampadu, Egan, Stevens, Osborn, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, McBurnie, McGoldrick
Wolves are waiting to see whether Willy Boly will be available following a positive test for the virus. However, Pedro Neto (knee), Fernando Marcal (groin), Jonny (knee), Ruben Neves (virus) and Raul Jimenez (head) are all unavailable.
Wolves’ Predicted XI:
Patricio, Semedo, Saiss, Coady, Boly, Ait-Nouri, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Traore, Willian Jose, Podence
The bookmakers have made Wolves the strong favourites with Betway pricing them at 4/6 for the win. A draw is currently 13/5 with Sky Bet while a victory for the Blades is 27/5 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 1-0 to Wolves
