Premier League Betting Tips: Sheffield United v Wolves

Sheffield United host Champions League-chasing Wolverhampton Wanderers in Wednesday evening Premier League action.

Wolves’ perfect return to action, in which they won three straight games all while keeping clean sheets, came to an end on Sunday with a 2-0 home defeat to Arsenal, a result that leaves them five points off the top four. 

 

They’ll be looking to bounce back here and will still have confidence in their methods, having kept seven clean sheets in their last nine outings - a victory with another here (Wolves to win and both teams not to score) is available at 2/1.

 

The visitors games have also tended to be tight, competitive and low-scoring all-round. Each of their last five matches have featured fewer than three goals, and fewer than 2.5 goals has short odds of just 4/9 here.

 

Sheffield United, meanwhile, looked in the mix for a surprise top-four push while the season was suspended but a poor return to action with a goalless draw against relegation-battling Aston Villa before back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Newcastle United and Manchester United has since seen them fall away.

 

But they’ve since regained some form, putting in a competitive performance against Arsenal to push them an injury-time winner in the FA Cup quarters last month before putting in a sensational display to beat Tottenham 3-1 last week and looking solid to take a creditable point in a 1-1 draw with Burnley at the weekend. 

 

We recommend Wolves to get a narrow 1-0 win here at 5/1. They’ve shown a knack for seeing through tight low-scoring encounters of late and have displayed better overall post-lockdown form than the hosts here.

    John Egan strikes again as Sheffield United snatch last-gasp win over Wolves

    John Egan struck deep into injury time as Sheffield United defeated fellow European hopefuls Wolves 1-0 at a rain-sodden Bramall Lane.

    It looked like the game would finish goalless but Egan headed home Oliver Norwood’s corner following a sustained period of Blades pressure to give Chris Wilder’s side a crucial victory.

    The win moved the hosts above Arsenal into seventh place and just a point behind their opponents in the Premier League table, keeping their dreams of Europa League football next season alive and kicking.

    Meanwhile, successive defeats for Wolves have likely ended their hopes of making the Champions League, although Nuno Espirio Santo’s side could still qualify for the competition should they win the Europa League next month.

    Blades boss Wilder made two changes. The fit-again Jack O’Connell replaced Jack Robinson in defence while club captain Billy Sharp started up front as David McGoldrick missed out with a foot injury.

    Wolves made one change after the home defeat to Arsenal with Diogo Jota coming in for Leander Dendoncker.

    Both sides got their passing games going early on in what was a competitive opening, but equally the organisation of the two teams often meant that free-flowing football lacked a cutting edge around the penalty areas.

    When Wolves worked their way through the Blades defence after 14 minutes, Raul Jimenez’s touch on his chest was heavy as he tried to control Adama Traore’s cross and what would have been a clear shot on goal eight yards out was lost.

    Shortly afterwards, Oliver McBurnie got across the front of Conor Coady at the near post to meet O’Connell’s cross but his glancing header was straight at Rui Patricio.

    O’Connell cynically halted Jota’s drive towards goal after half an hour and received a yellow card for the foul. Ruben Neves fired the resulting free-kick goalwards but his effort clipped the top of the crossbar on its way over.

    Wolves had a couple of let-offs either side of half time when Willy Boly’s pass-back to Patricio was pounced upon by Sharp but his shot was blocked by the goalkeeper.

    Sharp was involved again early in the second half when he put the ball in the net, only to see his celebrations curtailed by an offside flag.

    It was the beginning of a sustained period of pressure for the Blades but Wolves, marshalled at the back by Coady, largely kept the hosts at arm’s length until Jonny switched off 12 minutes from time but, thankfully for him, George Baldock’s header went wide.

    Wolves endured a late barrage of pressure as the Blades went in search of a winning goal and their endeavour was rewarded in injury time when defender Egan, who scored a superb goal in the draw at Burnley at the weekend, rose highest to head home Norwood’s corner, sending Wilder leaping in joy down the touchline.
