Wolves seek to rekindle end-of-season form against lowly Sheffield United.

Wolves v Sheffield United
Published: Saturday, 17th April 2021 at 7:00 pm

Wolves will hope three points against all-but-relegated Sheffield United will help raise spirits at Molineux after a tough spring for boss Nuno Espírito Santo.


Saturday’s hosts ended a five-game streak without a win thanks to a 1-0 victory over 18th-placed Fulham last time out – and would pass the heralded 40-point mark by beating Sheffield United here.

The Blades have lost four on the bounce which effectively kills any hope of a dramatic escape from relegation, with just seven Premier League fixtures now remaining.

Since Chris Wilder’s departure the South Yorkshire club have scored just one goal and conceded 12.

Wolves themselves haven’t been overly productive in front of goal recently but they are likely relishing the visit of United this weekend. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Wolves v Sheffield United on TV and online.

Our prediction: Wolves v Sheffield United

United lasted just over half an hour against Arsenal in their previous game out before being undone through Alexandre Lacazette, as once the first goal went in there was no way back.

Don’t be surprised if Wolves, like Arsenal, take their time imposing their dominance on the game. The hosts should be in front by the break but the tie will only truly open up in the second half.

Whether United can genuinely offer a counter to Wolves’ resolute midfield and stinging forward line remains to be seen. But in all likelihood this game should pass by comfortably for Nuno and his troops.

Our prediction: Wolves 2-0 Sheffield United (13/2 at bet365)
