Wigan Athletic vs Sheffield United Tips and Prediction
Former Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has been given his first managerial position at the DW Stadium after Leam Richardson was fired just 16 days after receiving a three-year contract extension last month.
In his first game in command last Saturday, the 120-cap Ivory Coast defender led his new team to a remarkable 1-1 draw away to Millwall. Will Keane’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Zian Flemming’s goal before halftime.
Wigan dominated possession with 58% of the ball at The Den, which is rather amazing considering they were playing away from home. This indicates that Toure will concentrate on enhancing the Latics’ ball retention as they attempt to avoid sliding immediately down to League One.
That might be challenging on Monday against a team like Sheff Utd, and the 41-year-old is probably satisfied to watch his squad avoid loss yet another time.
Despite winning their final game before the Championship season was suspended due to the World Cup being played in Qatar, Sheff Utd may have benefited from the break given the number of injuries they were dealing with.
Last weekend, in their first game back, Paul Heckingbottom’s team easily defeated bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield 1-0 at Bramall Lane, with Billy Sharp scoring his 116th league goal for his boyhood team. The Blades travel to Wigan six points behind Vincent Kompany’s team after Burnley defeated Middlesbrough 3-1 on Saturday. They will undoubtedly be wanting to halve that gap while regaining breathing room ahead of the following group within the play-off spots.
Sheff Utd should be superior than Wigan after winning all three of their recent away games without giving up a goal.
Last weekend, the Latics showed signs of improvement under Toure’s leadership, but there is no question that they will encounter a higher level of competition in the Ivorian’s next match.
