Sheffield finished 6 points off the promotion play-offs straight after winning promotion from League 1. This cannot be counted as anything other than success. The Blades played well most of the season but an unfortunate slump of form at one point saw them slip behind.

Sheffield will be even more determined this season and they’ve shown it in their pre-season games. Four victories and 2 draws with particular highlight being the 1-1 draw against Italian side Inter Milan.

Swansea had very different fortunes compared to their opponents in the first round. The team fell short and got relegated from the Premier League after 7 consecutive season in the English top tier football. Managerial changes and lots of turbulence lead the team here in the EFL Championship.

Things are not looking much rosier even in the preparations for this campaign. Only 1 victory in 5 games losing the other 4 is not exactly what manager Graham Potter had in mind. The only victory came against lower tier Yeovil Town and wasn’t nearly impressive enough.

Sheffield United vs Swansea: Head-to-head

  • Sheffield won their last 3 games against Swansea at Bramall Lane with clean sheet
  • In 4 of the last 5 direct clashes between the sides at least 1 team failed to score
  • In the last 4 games at Bramall Lane there was only 1 over 2.5 game and none saw both teams on the score-sheet
  • Swansea were atrocious last season on the road – 2 victories, 6 draws and 11 losses

Sheffield United vs Swansea: Predictions

Sheffield United showed in the pre-season that they mean business. The team will go for the victory to show its desire for top 6 finish. Swansea are likely still wondering where their team stands in terms of quality in this league and will be happy to avoid defeat against one of the good sides last year.
