Sheffield Utd have no fresh injury concerns to report after their 5-0 mauling away at Arsenal last weekend.

Chris Basham (ankle), John Egan (foot), Anel Ahmedhodzic, Rhys Norrington-Davies (both hamstring), Max Lowe (ankle), Tom Davies (thigh), William Osula (fitness), Oli McBurnie (groin) and Daniel Jebbison (illness) are still sidelined.

Wolves will be without Pedro Neto after he suffered a hamstring injury during their 2-2 draw at home to Newcastle.

Jean-Ricner Bellegarde (fitness) is a doubt but Hugo Bueno (hamstring) and Joseph Hodge (shoulder) remain absent.

Stat Attack

  • Sheffield Utd have won just one of their last four league meetings against Wolves (W1, D1, L2).
  • Wolves have won three of their last five league visits to Sheffield Utd (W3, L2).
  • Sheffield Utd have kept clean sheets in two of their last three home games against Wolves (W2, L1).
  • No Sheffield Utd player has scored a headed league goal this season.
  • Rayan Ait-Nouri, Matheus Cunha and Joao Gomes have been substituted on more occasions than any other Wolves player this season, having been substituted on seven occasions apiece.



After their second-worst performance of the season away at Arsenal last weekend with none of their two shots converted onto target, Sheffield Utd need to immdiately sort out their defensive sloppiness and be clinical if want to boost any survival hopes.

Wolves meanwhile certainly found themselves in a scrap against Newcastle where they played well aside from two unfortunately harsh goals to concede, yet weren’t fazed as they twice fought back so I hope that they can bring more of their attacking quality here.

Neto though will be a fairly big loss creatively from a goal-making perspective but I expect Wolves to find a way to score goals without him, especially given that the Blades’ defence do seem there for the taking which Hwang Hee-Chan could well do but other players must step up.

Prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Wolves
