Sheffield United and Wolverhampton meet on Monday in the first round of the new Premier League season.
The match will take place at Bramall Lane Stadium in Sheffield, starting at 20:00.
It comes after a series of training games; the last match he played was on 04.09.2020 (2-2 with Preston).
In the previous Premier League season he did very well; finished in 9th place with 54 points (complete balance: 14 wins, 12 draws, 12 defeats and a goal difference of 39:39).
Of the 19 games played at home, he lost only 6. The most important loss suffered during this summer break is that of goalkeeper Dean Henderson; his loan from Manchester United expired.
In terms of arrivals, among the most important acquisitions are: Oliver Burke (from West Bromwich Albion), Aaron Ramsdale (from Bournemouth) and Ethan Ampadu (who came on loan from Chelsea London).
He failed to play a friendly game. Thus, the last game he played was on 11.08.2020, in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
In the previous edition of the Premier League, he ranked 7th with 59 points (complete balance: 15 wins, 14 draws, 9 defeats and a goal difference of 51:40).
He made a transfer for a large amount during this summer break; he bought the Portuguese striker Fabio Silva from Porto for 40 million euros.
However, he also managed to obtain a significant amount from the sale of 2 players; Helder Costa was sold to Leeds for 17.7 million euros, and Matt Doherty was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for 16.8 million euros.
