Nuno Espirito Santo could be without Morgan Gibbs-White against Sheffield United as the 19-year-old is an injury doubt and ‘will be assessed’ ahead of Sunday’s meeting. Premier Injuries have given Gibbs-White just a 25% chance of returning in time to face the Blades, but a late fitness decision could be made over the weekend.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Sheffield United?
The England u21 international has made 10 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring one goal. Gibbs-White’s last outing in a Wolves shirt came in their 2-1 win over Slovan Bratislava (October 24). He’s missed five of his side’s last six games ever since, however.
Gibbs-White wasn’t in the matchday squad for Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Newcastle United (October 27), but he was an unused substitute in their 1-1 draw with Arsenal (November 2).
However, the 19-year-old suffered a setback in his recovery from a back injury and was left out of Wolves’ 1-0 win over Slovan Bratislava (November 7), 2-1 win over Aston Villa (November 10), 2-1 win over Bournemouth (November 23) and 3-3 draw with Braga (November 28).
With Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho at their disposal, Wolves have more than enough quality to cope without Gibbs-White.
