After gaining promotion last season from the championship, Sheffield Utd were on everyone’s cards to be going back down by the end of the season. Chris Wilder so far has done the opposite. With the back end of the season slowly approaching The Blades are sitting in sixth place of the premier league and looking more comfortable than ever. Holding the second best defensive record in the league whilst being unbeaten away from home gives the side the chance to emulate Wolves’ achievements last season as the best performing team after being promoted ever in the premier league. An interesting, but astounding stat. If they continue what they have already shown, which everyone believes is possible at this point they will finish on 54 points, their fourth highest finish in the completion of all time.
Another side that have recently been promoted, albeit it was two seasons ago have well and truly shown their worth as being Premier League top 10 contenders. Nuno’s offensive style of play have brought the best out of their technical attacking players such as Traore and Jota. Continuing their form on from last season The Wanderers sit in 8th position and will be looking to do what they did the season before and achieve European Football. Something that many fans are believing is possible once again. With many fixtures throughout the season with the Europa league, Fans thought it was an impossibility to recreate what they did but Wolves are well on their way.
