Fulham vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
The Cottagers are a relegation-battler in the PL – placed 18th in the table at the moment. However, it needs to noted that they have improved their form lately, and even registered a confidence-boosting victory against Everton the last match-day.
Moreover, they are at home this weekend, and most importantly are pitted against the worst team in the whole competition – the Blades.
Chris Wilder’s men are placed dead last in the table, and have scored the least number of goals so far in the campaign (just 15 from their 24 games so far).
They are also on the road, and their performances in away fixtures have been terrible in 2020-21.
Furthermore, Scott Parker’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Fulham to emerge victorious this Saturday.
Fulham vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Cottagers had recorded wins in three of the former four fixtures.
- They had scored a total of twelve goals from the past four meetings.
- It’s been 14 years since they have lost against this foe.
- At this venue, the hosts are unbeaten since 2000.
- The combined scorecard for the last two games at this venue is 6-0, in favor of the hosts.
Fulham vs Sheffield United Prediction
Parker’s men won 0-2 on the road the last match-day, against Everton. In the meantime, the Blades lost 3-0 on the road the past game week, against West Ham.
Going on, the Cottagers were unbeaten in four of their preceding five overall matches, and had kept clean sheets in their last two fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 18 of their preceding 24 overall matches, and of the six total wins during this stretch, three had come in the FA Cup, against teams from lower divisions.
And two other victories had come against West Brom, and Newcastle – two of the worst-performing teams in the PL at the moment.
On top of that, Parker’s men also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the past two decades, and especially so at this venue.
As such, expect the determined Fulham to make the most of this fixture, and post the three points on the board.
