Securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League in midweek, Wolves will now turn their attention back to Premier League duties when they welcome fellow high-flyers Sheffield United to Molineux on Sunday afternoon.
Despite throwing away a two-goal lead out in Portugal on Thursday evening, the Oranges will open the weekend sat fifth in the table and are in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions, including landing back-to-back Premier League victories.
On the flip side, Sunday’s hosts are not the only side who have continued to enjoy what has been a scintillating run of form.
Putting in a Premier League classic in their six-goal thriller against Manchester United at Bramall Lane last weekend, Chris Wilder’s men sit only a single point behind this weekend’s hosts and are unbeaten in their last six top-flight appearances.
With both Wolves and Sheffield United playing out their own dramatic 3-3 draws in their last outings, you might be interested to know that another shock six-goal thriller can be found at 80/1 with Bet365 for Sunday afternoon.
Raul Jimenez’s stellar run continues
While Wolves may have seen Braga snatch two late goals in the Europa League in midweek, Sunday’s hosts have continued on what has been quite the run of form.
Bagging back-to-back Premier League victories thanks to 2-1 wins over Bournemouth and bitter rivals Aston Villa, it is no surprise that Head Coach NunoEspírito Santo is being linked with the now-vacant job at Arsenal.
Now bagging at least a pair of goals in each of their last three matches on the bounce, one man who has really started to catch fire and continued to spearhead Wolves’ charge is leading marksman and attacking talisman, Raul Jimenez.
Once again finding the net on foreign soil on Thursday evening, the Mexico international has now found the net in each of his last five matches across all competitions and even more impressive, the 28-year-old has five goals in his last six Premier League appearances.
You might be interested to know that Jimenez can be found pencilled in at 8/5 with Paddy Power to once again find the net at Molineux this weekend.
Bramall Lane flying high
While Sheffield United would have been disappointed to have thrown away a two-goal lead at Bramall Lane last time out, Chris Wilder has praised his side for yet another rugged display.
Dreaming of a first top-half finish this season, the Blades are unbeaten in their last six outings, a run that stems back to the 28th of September.
While Wolves have one leading marksman who is enjoying an extended purple patch, the Blades will be looking for Lys Mousset to carry on from where he left off last weekend.
Despite coming off at Bramall Lane with a tight hamstring, the former Bournemouth striker has been declared fit for Sunday and has now bagged three goals in his last five Premier League matchups, more than he managed during his whole tenure at the Vitality.
You might be interested to know that the 23-year-old is pencilled in at 7/2 with 888sport to bag back-to-back strikes on the road.
Elsewhere, Wilder will be glad to be able to call upon #1 keeper Dean Henderson who was ineligible to face parent club Manchester United last weekend.
