Promoted to the elite last year, Sheffield United beat all odds to claim an unexpected 9th place in the Premier League. Chris Wilder’s men fought for a European place throughout the season but the 3 losses conceded in the last 3 days relegated the team to 5 points from 6th place, the last qualifying folding seat for the Europa League. This year, Sheffield United will not be able to play on the surprise effect. The club prepared by playing 3 smaller British clubs, beating Dundee and Derby County, to a draw against Preston.

Already convincing during the 2018/2019 financial year for its rise to the Premier League, Wolverhampton confirmed last year by finishing in a very honorable 7th place in the standings. Tied on points with 6th Tottenham but with a poorer goal difference, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men unfortunately narrowly missed a new European qualification. The Wolves are still settling in the first part of the league table. Wolverhampton, who hopes to confirm this season and grab a European spot, played big teams in preparation, winning against Olympiakos before losing to Sevilla.

Workforce for Sheffield United vs Wolverhampton

A key element of Sheffield United’s great last season, goalkeeper Dean Henderson returned to Manchester United after his loan. To replace him, the leaders have set their sights on the young goalkeeper from Bournemouth Aaron Ramsdale (22 years old, 37 Premier League games last year). Besides, the club was loaned the Welsh international Ampadu by Chelsea and recruited the Scottish international Oliver Burke (ex-Alaves, WBA). The defense is well established with center Chris Basham and John Egan and full back George Baldock and Enda Stevens. In the midfield, John Fleck and John Lundstram play an important role. French striker Lys Mousset is still present as is the important Oliver McBurnie. For this first game, Sheffield will be deprived of his replacement goalkeeper Simon Moore, while his Norwegian international midfielder Sander Berge is uncertain.

Wolverhampton must deal with the departure for Tottenham from the very offensive side Matt Doherty. In the opposite direction, the club bought its Brazilian defender Marçal from Lyon and made a big financial effort (40 million euros) to enlist the very young Portuguese striker Fabio Silva (Porto, 18), while another youngster, Vitinha, was loaned by the Portuguese club. They join an important Portuguese colony made up of goalkeeper Rui Patricio, midfielders Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho, and winger Diogo Jota, who are all potential holders, but also coach Nuno Espirito Santo. Mexican striker Raul Jimenez (17 goals and 6 assists) is coming off a very good season and he will have to create automatisms with rookie Fabio Silva. On this first trip, Wolverhampton is deprived of its titular side Jonny Castro who will be absent for a while. Having had to give up the Spanish selection after testing positive for the coronavirus, the indispensable Adama Traoré is uncertain.
