Sheffield United vs Wolverhampton WanderersEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Nov 4, 2023, Bramall Lane
Sheffield United are still seeking their first Premier League win of the season as they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Bramall Lane on Saturday. The Blades are looking out of their depth in the top flight and should be no match for Wolves, who have shown some good form in recent weeks.
The Premier League is proving too difficult for Sheffield United who are having a tough time coping with the elite quality in the top flight. They have spent the greater part of the season rooted to the bottom half of the table having lost nine of their 10 matches so far.
Sheffield United head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 5-0 defeat to Arsenal in their previous Premier League fixture. They were no match for the Gunners throughout the encounter and failed to muster a single attempt on target.
Results like that have been common for Sheffield United this season as they have suffered some heavy defeats so far. Among the results for Paul Heckingbottom’s side at Bramall Lane is an 8-0 defeat to Newcastle United.
While Sheffield United appear to be prepping for a relegation scrap, Wolverhampton Wanderers have been steadily climbing the table. They are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches and are now just two points off the top half.
Wolverhampton Wanderers’ recent battling spirit was evident last time out in the Premier League as they held Newcastle United to a 2-2 draw. They came from behind twice with efforts from Mario Lemina and Hwang Hee-Chan earning them the point.
Wolves' recent good form also saw them claim a 2-1 victory over reigning champions Manchester City at Molineux. However, defending remains a problem for Gary O’Neil’s men, who are without a clean sheet in their last eight matches across all competitions.
Head to head
Wolverhampton Wanderers have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at evens with Ladbrokes to claim the win. Sheffield United are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 3/1 by bet365 while William Hill is offering odds of 27/10 for a draw.
Head to head
Wolverhampton Wanderers have a 34-27 advantage with 24 draws from 82 previous matches against Sheffield United. Wolves have also won the last three meetings and claimed a 3-0 victory in an FA Cup clash back in 2022.
Players to watch
While Sheffield United have not been particularly prolific this season, they will still be hopeful of capitalising on Wolves’ vulnerable backline. Cameron Archer is often the most lively player for the Blades and is priced at 13/5 by bet365 to find the net.
Hwang Hee-Chan does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon after netting his sixth goal of the season last time out against Newcastle United. The Korean forward could be the one to watch for Wolves and is priced at 13/5 by bet365 to find the net on Saturday.
Anything else catch the eye?
Wolverhampton Wanderers saw over 3.5 goals in their previous Premier League fixture and a repeat is priced at 9/4 by Betfred. Over 2.5 goals could also be considered at 5/6 by BetVictor while Unibet is offering odds of 10/13 on both teams to score.
Wolves scored in both halves last time out against Newcastle United and could be set for a similar outcome at 2/1 with BoyleSports.
