Sheffield United are taking on Wolves tonight at Bramall Lane as the two clubs begin their Premier League campaign.
The Blades made a blistering return to the top flight last season, finishing in the top half with one of the best defensive records in the league under manager Chris Wilder. Wolves has been excellent too since coming up the previous season under Nuno Espirito Santo and will expect to push the top six once more.
