Wolves know that a win today would guarantee 12th position in the Premier League table, while Man United will end the 2020-21 campaign in second spot regardless of the result at Molineux.

The 23-year-old has scored 12 times and registered six assists in 31 appearances for the Blues this season but has struggled for regular action in recent weeks.

The Blades are 18 points adrift and it will be mathematically impossible for them to escape the drop should they lose at Molineux and Newcastle United beat West Ham United.

The Magpies lost 3-1 to Manchester United on Sunday evening, whereas Wolves’ turnaround in fortunes continued with a 1-0 win over Leeds United.

Meanwhile, the home side head into the contest at Molineux on the back of a much-needed 2-1 win against Arsenal, a result which has moved the club 12 points clear of the relegation zone.

Palace will enter today’s contest off the back of a 3-2 home defeat to West Ham United on Tuesday, while Wolves held Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

While the home side have gone five matches without recording maximum points, the Baggies last recorded success on November 28 when they edged out bottom-placed Sheffield United.

Spurs have lost their last two in the league to Liverpool and Leicester City, which has seen them drop down into eighth position in the table, while Wolves currently occupy 11th position.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the weekend with only goal difference keeping them off the top of the table, but Wolves could move to within just one point of their opponents if they end the Reds’ long unbeaten run at home.

The Gunners have won just one of their last five top-flight matches and enter the weekend’s fixtures down in 12th, one point behind opponents Wolves.
