Manchester City, were defeated at the hands of Wolves last time out in the Premier League, 2-3.

Sheffield meanwhile are coming off a draw at home with Watford.

Both teams coming with adverse results and with one looking to escape the relegation zone and the other looking to keep its place in Champions League qualification, something will have to give.
