Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to face in-form Sheffield United in their next Premier League fixture at the Molineux Stadium on Sunday.

Both teams have been doing exceptionally well in the ongoing campaign as they were placed fifth and sixth position on the league table with 19 and 18 points respectively before Saturday’s action.

Wolves are definitely exceeding expectations this season as they are also participating in the Europa League.

However, on Sunday, the expansive Molineux outfit will come up against one of the strongest defensive units in the competition in Sheffield United, who have been proven to be extremely hard to break down.

Wolves are set to make one forced change to the starting XI that played against AFC Bournemouth, as Romain Saïss is facing a one-game suspension after receiving his fifth yellow card for the campaign.

In his absence, Ryan Bennett might well start his first game after missing last two league and cup matches due to groin injury.

However, his fitness will be assessed before the game as reported by BBC Sport.

The teams last faced each other on February 3, 2018 in a Championship tie where Wolves emerged victorious with a 3-0 margin courtesy goals from Ruben Navas, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro.
