Visiting Sheffield United to their West Midlands home on Sunday afternoon for a Premier League encounter is Wolverhampton Wanderers’ third shot at winning at Molineux this month.

Last Saturday, Gary O’Neil’s squad defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the capital, while Brighton & Hove Albion put the weak Blades to shame with a 5-0 thrashing.

Wolves and Sheffield United: Previous Games 

When the season began, Wolverhampton Wanderers were thought to have a tough time. Gary O’Neil succeeded Julen Lopetegui, who resigned a few days before the current Premier League season started. Things have changed since the Wolves’ primary goal was to remain in the English Premier League.

With 35 points after 25 matches, Wolves have risen to eleventh place in the Premier League standings. They are tied for tenth position in the league with the formidable Chelsea and are separated by three points from a spot in Europe. The Wanderers thrive under Gary O’Neil’s guidance and may qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference League next year.

This weekend, the Wanderers will face Sheffield United in the Premier League. They won their last Premier League encounter, 2-1, away at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It followed a 4-2 Premier League road win over Chelsea at London’s Stamford Bridge and a 2-0 league home defeat to Brentford.

Sheffield United has been one of the worst, if not the worst, Premier League teams this season. The Blades have a goal-scoring problem and need help to stop other teams from attacking their fellow citizens. When the season ends, Chris Wilder’s team will almost certainly be sent to the Championship.

With 13 points after 25 matches, the Yorkshire club occupies the bottom spot in the Premier League rankings. Everton, who are in 17th place with 25 games under their belts, is seven points behind United. After 24 games, Luton Town has accumulated 20 points, which is suitable for a third-bottom position.

After a 5-0 home thrashing of Brighton & Hove Albion, United will face Wolverhampton Wanderers in their Premier League fixture. Next, a promising 3-1 Premier League away win over Luton Town and a 5-0 home loss to Aston Villa were the following setbacks.

Probable Wolves Lineup

Sa; Kilman, Toti, Dawson; Semedo, Lemina, Gomes, Ait-Nouri; Neto, Hwang, Sarabia

Probable Sheffield United Lineup

Grbic; Trusty, Ahmedhodzic, Robinson; Bogle, Souza, Hamer, Davies, Larouci; McAtee, Archer

Betting tips: Wolves vs. Sheffield United

Check out our predictions of the day for Wolves vs. Sheffield United

Prediction 1: Wolves x Sheffield United / Wolves to win

Neto, Hwang, and company pose a severe threat to Blades’ already defense, so O’Neil’s side needs no more reason to get even with Sheffield United after their agonizing loss in November.

The visitors’ recent road success has exacerbated the wolves’ struggles in front of Molineux fans. Despite scoring four goals away from home in the F.A. Cup against Gillingham in 2024, Wilder’s squad is expected to face another depressing Sunday on the road.

Prediction 2: Wolves x Sheffield United / Over 2.5 goals

Several goals were scored in Wolverhampton over the preceding time due to the high quality of Wolves’ matches. Before Wolves’ most recent home encounter, a 2-0 loss to Brentford at this stadium, four games in a row saw three-goal or more performances for eighteen goals. 

Sheffield, on the other hand, is experiencing a defensive slump. In their last five games, they let in 19 goals, and things may be much worse. Sheffield can display an aggressive side from time to time; this may be one of those occasions. We anticipate a high-scoring affair, with the home side emerging victorious.

Prediction 3: Wolves x Sheffield United / Wolves to win to Nil

Everyone thought Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United would fight for survival in the league’s lowest divisions before the season started. Nevertheless, the Wolves are now in a fantastic season thanks to Gary O’Neil, and they are in contention for a position in Europe. 

That shouldn’t be the case against Sheffield United, who are so lowly, but they have struggled to defeat inferior opponents this season. There will likely be a resounding victory for the home team on Saturday afternoon and a guaranteed clean sheet.
