After an impressive first breakout season in the Premier League, Sheffield United start their second campaign this weekend against side Wolves. The match schedules for Sunday at the Bramall Lane with kickoff at 8 pm.
Chris Wilder had the whole Premier League on attention after an impressive breakout season. The newly-promoted Championship team would become a thorn in the Big Six’s flesh, including Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, and Arsenal.
Despite missing out on a Europa League qualification, Chris Wilder most definitely earned the top sides’ respect. The second season syndrome will be put to the test and whether Chris Wilder can push the side to contend for a Europa League remains in question.
Nuno Espirito is another big deal in the Premier League after an impressive 2019-2020 campaign. Despite losing out on a Europa League qualification, the side proceeded to the semi-finals of the competition. It remains a big year for Wolves to cement their stand as a top-six side.
The transfer market has been kind for the team, with several impressive signings joining the team. The side recently lost Doherty to Spurs, paving the way for highly rated Vitinha and Fabio Silva.
The Portuguese starlets might need time to get the Premier League’s hinds but look like an exciting prospect under Nuno Espirito.
