Wolves fancied to cut down the Blades
Kick-offs 7.45pm Wednesday
There were teething problems after Fosun International completed their takeover of Wolves last summer but the considerable investment of the new owners is starting to pay dividends.
Nuno Espirito Santo was appointed as Wolves' new head coach this summer with the aim of winning promotion and has made a promising start.
Wolves are playing exciting, attacking football and are among the early pace-setters after taking 20 points from nine games.
They are likely to get even better as the season progresses and may just have the edge over United, who are only two points below them.
The Yorkshire hosts go into the game on a high after their 4-2 victory at Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday – inspired by two goals from striker Leon Clarke – but they are not the equals of Wolves in terms of quality and may lose out in a hard-fought contest.
Wednesday will be hoping to issue an immediate response to their weekend derby defeat and are narrow favourites for an away victory at Birmingham, who continue to be under the caretaker stewardship of Lee Carsley.
