Sports Mole looks at how Sheffield United could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers for Saturday's Premier League clash.

Paul Heckingbottom has more fresh injury problems to contend with as Sheffield United prepare to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday evening.

The Blades could be relegated with defeat at Molineux and make the trip to the West Midlands without as many as seven players.

It was confirmed this week that Billy Sharp will not play again this season after undergoing surgery on a thigh issue sustained in training.

Oli McBurnie is also out after injuring his foot as a substitute in last week's 3-0 loss to Arsenal.

David McGoldrick and Rhian Brewster therefore seem likely to get the nod up top, with the latter seeking his first goal since joining the club from Liverpool last summer.

Heckingbottom can at least call upon Jayden Bogle and George Baldock, with the pair included in the squad to face Arsenal despite a concussion scare the previous week.

However, the likes of Chris Basham, Jack O'Connell, Jack Robinson and Sander Berge remain sidelined and are in a race to feature again before the end of the campaign.

Despite a run of four straight losses, United will stick with a 3-5-2 formation this weekend, which will again see Ethan Ampadu, John Egan and Enda Stevens link up at the back.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup: Ramsdale; Ampadu, Egan, Stevens; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Osborn; McGoldrick, Brewster
