Wolverhampton Wanderers will be without Romain Saiss against Sheffield United over the weekend as the 29-year-old is ‘suspended’. He’s picked up five yellow cards in the Premier League and will serve a one-match ban as a result.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Sheffield United?
Saiss has been a regular this season, making 19 appearances in all competitions while racking up 1338 minutes of playing time. He’s operated in both defence & midfield and will be a loss on Sunday as a result.
In the Premier League, the Moroccan international picked up single bookings against Chelsea (September 14), Newcastle United (October 27), Arsenal (November 2), Aston Villa (November 10) and Bournemouth (November 23). He was also sent off against Crystal Palace (September 22).
Saiss will return against West Ham United (December 4), but his absence is bad timing as Nuno Espirito Santo is already without Willy Boly. Wolves aren’t blessed with a lot of cover at the back and may have to continue putting square pegs into round holes until they have a clean bill of health.
Wolves are still picking up results amid their injury crisis, but the Midlands outfit have kept just one clean sheet since early-October. Sunday’s meeting with the sixth-placed Blades will be a tough test.
