Sheffield United and the Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C kick off their season on Monday, September 14th at Bramall Lane in South Yorkshire for English Premier League action.
Coming into last season there were thoughts that Sheffield United could be a team that would be relegated, but not only did that not happen, they did finish in 9th place in the standings. Last season, Sheffield found a lot of success and a big reason was because of how they played at home. They were able to pick up 54 points last season and 33 of those were picked up at home. It’s a little different with no fans in attendance but it’s still going to be important this team picks up as many points as possible at home. Sheffield United has played two different exhibitions heading into this game and the offense was good in each of those games. Against Derby County they were able to win 2-0 and in the last game against Preston they played to a 2-2 draw. They are playing a defense first team so it’s going to be important they take advantage of the few chances they might get.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wolves who are a defense first squad and last year in the EPL they only gave up 39 goals. One big problem for this team is they are going to be without Dean Henderson who played a big role with last year’s team but he is back with Manchester United. Last season the Wolves also really struggled to score goals away from home putting only 24 balls in the back of the net. In this game the Wolves will play a defensie first style but they also need to make sure they don’t just try to play defense. Playing for a draw shouldn't be the attitude for this game.
Who is going to win in this game is a true toss up but one thing is for sure, there won’t be a whole lot goals scored in this game. Look for the Wolves to play a defense-first style and this game is going to stay under the total.
