Wolves team news: Attacker will be assessed ahead of game with Sheffield United

Premier League top four hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers face off against Sheffield United in a Premier League clash at Bramall Lane on Wednesday evening.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side heads into the game in sixth position on the league standings with 52 points from 33 games and three points adrift of fifth-place Manchester United.

Fifth place in the Premier League standings could be sufficient to grant Wolves entry into next season’s Champions League as a result of Manchester City’s two season ban from Europe’s Premier club competition.

Wolves attacker Pedro Neto is set to be assessed ahead of the game after having picked up a knock during the team’s defeat against Arsenal, according to BBC Sport.  

The report added that Daniel Podence will also be available. The 24-year-old was required to undergo a period of personal isolation following a trip to Portugal.

Wolves heads into the game on the back of a frustrating 2-0 away defeat to Arsenal.

They will need to bounce back and will be aiming for a win against Sheffield. On paper, they do have a better side than Sheffield.

In addition to this, their form has also been better than the Blades since the re-start.

Prior to their defeat against Arsenal, Wolves had won three consecutive League games.

Though Sheffield did claim a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur last week, their form since the Premier League re-start has been largely disappointing.

The Blades were touted as potential top four candidates prior to the break but they now look unlikely to achieve a top-four finish.
