Wolverhampton vs Sheffield United Preview and Prediction 2021

Wolverhampton vs Sheffield United predictions for Saturday’s Premier League contest at Molineux. Can Wolves find a way to edge out bottom club Sheffield United? Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Sheffield United have scored just seven goals in 15 away league games this season.

Four of Wolves’ last five home matches produced under 2.5 goals.

Sheffield United have lost 13 of their last 15 away league assignments this term.

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Sheffield United’s last nine league games on the road.

Little to play for at Molineux

Both Wolves and Sheffield United will be desperate for the 2020/21 season to end as quickly as possible after dismal domestic campaigns, and with little to play for when they meet at Molineux on Saturday, a drab affair is expected.

Wanderers eked out a late win at Fulham last weekend to end a run of five games without a victory, when winger Adama Traore finally broke his duck for the season with an injury-time effort.

At Molineux – once a formidable fortress – Wolves have won only once in their last five attempts and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side failed to register in a further three of those uninspiring contests.

Blades already looking to next season

For Sheffield United, thoughts have already turned to parachute payments and Championship football and the Blades’ relegation back to the second tier could be all but confirmed this weekend if results go against them.

United have lost eight of their last nine league matches and the division’s lowest scorers failed to find the net in six of those losses.

The Blades have scored just 17 goals in total this season, and they still need to find the net another three times to avoid going down in history as the Premier League’s lowest ever scorers during a single campaign.

Game of few chances anticipated

Wolves have scored just 17 times in 15 home games this season, and with key creator Pedro Neto joining Raul Jimenez in the treatment room and midfield string-puller Ruben Neves out with COVID-19, Wanderers should struggle to find the net again.

Sheffield United meanwhile, have plundered just seven away goals in 15 matches on the road this term, and the Blades have failed to register in 60% of their Premier League away fixtures since August.

Saturday’s tussle has all the makings of a mundane contest, and bettors are advised to back under 2.5 goals as a result. Our 1-0 correct score prediction tips the hosts to squeeze three points out of game for the second week in a row however.

Sheffield United were beaten 13 times in 15 away skirmishes this season, and a single strike from Wolves should be enough to see off their relegation-bound opponents.

Wolverhampton injuries and team news

Raul Jimenez, Jonny, Pedro Neto and Ruben Neves make up a quartet of high-profile absentees for Wolves, though Willy Boly should be back in contention following illness.

Sheffield United injuries and team news

Chris Basham, Jack O’Connell, Jack Robinson, Billy Sharp and Sander Berge are all ruled out for Sheffield United, though Jayden Bogle, George Baldock and Oliver McBurnie should all be available.
