Wolves vs Sheffield United
English Premier League
Date: Saturday 17th April 2021
Kick off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves will fancy their chances to make it back to back wins when they face bottom club Sheffield United on Saturday evening.
Wolves are 12 points above the bottom three and although this has not been a vintage season for the club they will be safe. Last weekend they beat Fulham 1-0 and they will be the favourites to win this match also.
With victory Wolves will not be able to move up a place as they are in 12th position but are six points behind Aston Villa in 11th. Overall form has not been good for the club and the Fulham victory is their only win in their last 5 games.
Sheffield United lost their 25th game of the season last weekend against Arsenal as they went down 3-0. They are 18 points from safety but if Newcastle have won earlier in the day then the club would, in theory be relegated because of the goal difference.
The Blades have lost their last 4 games in a row and away from home they have the worst record in the Premier League losing 13 of their 15 games so far.
Wolves vs Sheffield United: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- Earlier in the season Wolves beat Sheffield United 2-0.
- There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Wolves vs Sheffield United: Prediction
This could be one of the most predictable games in the Premier League over the weekend. It is true that with nothing to lose now Sheffield United can play with more freedom, but the bottom line is that the Blades lack quality.
Wolves are a good side and are at home and we feel that this will be a solid victory for them. They have goals in their team and they will have plenty of possession and should ease home for the win.
There is no pressure on Wolves now, they are in a position of safety but will miss out on European football, so they can just enjoy their football until the end of the season.
