The Blades’ European hopes are still alive, but there’s plenty of competition from from third to ninth and most of the teams above them are in good form.
Wolves are one of those clubs, in fact, three places and four points above United.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team will be looking for the points to keep pressure on Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester.

Wolves: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Otto, Moutinho, Neves; Adama, Jota, Jimenez.
What are the odds?
Sheffield United – 16/5
Draw – 11/5
Wolves – 6/5
Both teams have had mixed results recently, with Wolves losing to Arsenal and Burnley holding the Blades to a draw.
Consistency is what finds the points necessary for European spots in the Premier League and these teams, perhaps more than most, rely on a regular starting group of players who are rarely rotated.
Perhaps that’s catching up with both squads now after an intense restart to proceedings.
