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.

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.

After a drab first 45 minutes where only a Kurt Zouma header that rocketed back off the crossbar threatened either goal, Olivier Giroud put Chelsea ahead when his effort squeezed through Rui Patricio and was awarded by goal-line technology.

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.
