Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder faces a "big decision" whether to pick Jack O'Connell or Jack Robinson at centre-back.

O'Connell made his return from injury as a second-half substitute - replacing Robinson - against Burnley on Sunday.

Wolves forward Pedro Neto will be assessed after picking up a knock against Arsenal last time out.

Daniel Podence will be available after a period of self-isolation following a trip to Portugal.

LAWRO'S PREDICTION Fack off Lawro

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

Wolves have only lost one of the last eight league meetings, winning four and drawing three.
They have won two of the last three away league encounters, more victories than in their previous 16 visits to Bramall Lane (W1, D7, L8)..
Sheffield United

Sheffield United could win three consecutive home Premier League matches for the first time since 1993.
Only Liverpool and Manchester City have conceded fewer home league goals than the Blades, who have shipped 14.
Chris Wilder's side lost three of their first four home league matches this season but have only lost two of 12 since.
Their tally of 48 points is the highest by a newly-promoted team after 33 matches of a Premier League season since Wigan also recorded 48 in 2005-06.
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves could lose back-to-back Premier League matches for only the third time this season.
They have won six of their last seven league games against newly-promoted sides, drawing the other match.
Wolves could win four consecutive top-flight away fixtures for the first time since a run of five victories in 1980.
They could also equal the club top-flight record of three consecutive away clean sheets.
If Premier League matches finished at half-time this season, Wolves would be bottom with a record of W5, D12, L16.
Adama Traore has provided a club-high nine Premier League assists this season

Cinci I have acknowledged the players that have failed, I have also acknowledged the players likely to succeed, how in any way could that be construed as talking in isolation?

I might also add that, Cutrone was being looked at as competition up front, Vallejo was simply being accessed, as it was a simple loan deal, and not a major signing, or a signing at all as it turned out.

Oh Tamwolf you mentioned two Prem players, and you can debate how good or bad a signing they are compared to Neto.

But if we add Fernandes, that is just 3 teams in the whole of the Prem you deem did any better in the transfer market. A market that Cinci claims we failed miserably in.

Did anyone do worse. We basically added a solid substitute option Nuno has only recently started to trust. Have others added so little?

Well adding more does not necessarily mean better Cinci. Aston Villa spent over 100 million, and it could be argued are now worse than they were before.

We signed Neto, who I think every Wolves fan can appreciate, Podence, and Campana I think could be great signings, and Jordao some on here seem to rate.

I would argue that is some decent business.

But at the level we are now at you need solid signings to go with good prospective buys, if we had done better business last summer we wouldn't be looking over our shoulder now and would be in a very strong position to secure a CL spot. That is what will propel us toward the top. If we have a similar window this coming summer then we won't be closing the gap at all.

Cinci, I'm not having a go at you. But what does better business even mean?

Signing more players, spending more money, paying higher wages, what is it you think Wolves are doing wrong?

We were trying to spend more money so why is it you are so opposed to that? It isn't your money, the club know what they have, don't worry about that side of it. What we did wrong is not identifying better options, it isn't in any clubs plan for new signings to be gone within months, THAT is bad business.

And better business is obvious, better business than what we did, prospective buys are great but you need immediate impact players as well, the best clubs don't sit still waiting for prospects to come good.

Neto was signed in the summer. I just did January as you were talking about Fernandes and the January window. Do you want me to go back to the summer and start adding more players?

Pulisic to Chelsea, Kovacic to Chelsea, Tielemans to Leicester, Ayoze Perez to Leicester, Danny Ings to Southampton etc.

Why do we need to limit it to the Premier League too. Can we only sign players other Prem sides do? I think you need to stop looking at things in isolation.

Yes Cinci agreed we were trying to spend, that I have no problem with. But obviously the club for whatever reason chose not to. and I could list numerous reasons why that would be. Spending is easy, spending wisely is key.

Better business sounds great, but that is an aspiration not a given, I'm sure Villa wish they had done better business with their 140 million spend

Tam you can sign players from where you like, you have mentioned some good players, but are they that much better than our signings?

My point is we have done pretty well in our transfer dealings, all things considered.
