Sheffield United will be looking to dispel fears of a difficult second season when they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Bramall Lane in Monday’s Premier League clash.
The Blades enjoyed an extremely successful newly-promoted campaign last season, exceeding all expectations to achieve a comfortable top half finish.
Having taken four points from the two meetings with this opposition in 2019-20, they are available at 9/4 (3.25) with bet365 to get off to a strong start by coming out on top here.
Just one of the last six encounters between this pair has resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 21/10 (3.10) on offer on this one finishing up all square.
Simon Moore, Sander Berge, Lys Mousset, and David McGoldrick will all face late fitness tests as they struggle with minor injuries.
Adam Traore is likely to start at right wing back following Matt Doherty’s departure to Tottenham, although Jonny will not feature on the opposite flank after being ruled out due to injury.
While both of these sides have won plenty of admirers since gaining promotion over the last couple of seasons, they may not have too many neutrals tuning in expecting a free-scoring match.
Only Manchester City conceded fewer goals on home turf than Chris Wilder’s outfit last season, with just six of their 19 home matches seeing more than two goals and the same number producing goals at both ends
Considering Wolves boasted the league’s third best defensive record on the road and were joined on the scoresheet in only one of their final 11 fixtures last season, odds of 4/5(1.80) look solid on no more than one team getting on target in a match featuring under 2.5 goals.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
