The Blades' fate was finally sealed with a 1-0 loss at Wolves last weekend and they will be playing Championship football next season. The Defeat was the club's fifth in succession and 26th of the campaign. 
"If you pick a game to typify this season, it was that. We were on top, missed chances and this league won't give you a second chance," said caretaker United boss Paul Heckingbottom following their loss at Molineux Stadium. 

"There has to be a mentality to get straight back [to the Premier League]. Everyone wants to play in this league. You need to get promoted and that's everyone's driving force."
Brighton are winless in two matches following a 0-0 draw at home to Everton and go into back-to-back games away to Chelsea and Sheffield this week sitting six points above the drop zone.

The reverse fixture at Amex Stadium earlier this season ended in a 1-1 draw. Jayden Bogle opened the scoring but a late Danny Welbeck equaliser earned the Seagulls a point against the Blades, who had John Lundstram sent off in the first-half.
