Wolverhampton Wanderers v Sheffield United Match Preview & Trends

Rearranged Kick-Off Time at Bramall Lane

Originally scheduled for a traditional Saturday 3pm kick-off, this fixture was moved to pay respect to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh who passed away last week. All three o’clock games were moved so that as many people could watch Prince Phillip’s 3pm funeral as possible with the country in national mourning.

Now an 8.15pm start awaits us at Molineux as Paul Heckingbotham brings the league’s basement side, Sheffield United to the Midlands to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolves will be aiming to continue their build towards the Europa League qualification places after Adama Traore’s injury-time winner at Craven Cottage secured a 0-1 victory over Fulham in their last game. That was a welcome 3 points for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side who have been uncharacteristically inconsistent in recent months. 

Sheffield Utd have lost their last 4 matches and conceded at least 1 goal in 100% of their away matches. 71% of Sheffield Utd’s points have been earned at home but have conceded the opening goal in 77% of their fixtures and have lost 81% of their matches. The Blades have also lost 87% of their games away from Bramall Lane. Sheffield Utd conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 15 away matches and have let in 2 goals or more in each of their last 4 games.

If Wolves win, they would increase their lead over Sheffield Utd to 27 points in the league table, and it would be Sheffield Utd’s 5th consecutive defeat and The Blades’ 6th straight away defeat. Wolverhampton’s goals scored per match at home is 1.13 whilst Nuno Espirito Santo’s side average goals conceded at home is 1.20.

Key trends

Wolverhampton Wanderers have picked up an average of 1.27 Points Per Game in their 15 matches played

Sheffield United’s average Points Per Game in their 15 away games is 0.27.

Wolverhampton conceded at least 1 goal in 73% of their home matches.
