Winning 10 out of their 19 home matches last season allowed Sheffield United to have a comfortable return to the English Premier League with 6 of their home wins being won by a solidary goal.
Their success was down to having a strong defence by only conceding 15 goals at home resulting in the second-best defence in the league behind Manchester City.
However, this season, keeping clean sheets will be a challenge for Sheffield United with exceptional goalkeeper Dean Henderson having returned to Manchester United who has been replaced by young goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, who has big gloves to fill this season.
On Monday night they start the season at home to Wolves who finished five points above them in 7th.
This will be a tough test for Sheffield United as Wolves only lost five matches away from home last season, including big wins at Manchester City & Tottenham.
If Wolves are serious in mounting a challenge on the top four this season winning at Bramall Lane will be a test in which they must pass.
Opening days wins away from home for Arsenal & Leicester have shown that teams cannot afford to rely on only home victories and with players of Jimenez and Traore’s class, I expect Wolves to start the season with a win and build on the positive news of highly rated manager Nuno Santo signing a new contract with the club.
Best Bet: Wolves to win 6/4 – (Betfair, Bet Victor)
