Sheffield United vs Watford Prediction

Sheffield United edged past Brighton on the road last week after Oliver McBurnie scored the sole goal of the game. The hosts are now on a stellar three-match winning streak in the Premier League and have admitted defeat just once in their last five clashes.

With twenty-eight points in the bag, the home side are sitting fifth on the ladder, sixteen points ahead of their counterparts for the weekend.

On the other hand, Watford picked up what was only their second win of the season in their most recent matchup with Manchester United at home. The visitors were much the better side in that latter fixture and slotted two unanswered goals past their foes by the end of the ninety minutes.

Miserably though, Watford are still stuck to the bottom of the ladder. They have stumbled thrice in their last five PL fixtures, and have garnered no more than four points from a possible fifteen.

To pile on even more misery, the guests have been at the losing end in each of their last three outings. And, have tasted success on the road just once this season.

The Blades have looked far more convincing in their respective clashes at home. Given the current run of form that Watford are on, Sheffield United are the front runners to come out on top in this one.

Furthermore, disappointingly the visiting contingent have been losing without so much as a consolation goal in each of their previous two away games. As of now, they have found the back of the net just five times in their outings as well.

Meanwhile, Sheffield have been tough to breach in the defensive third, especially at home. They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five games here.

Moreover, six of the previous nine fixtures at Bramall Lane this season have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. Hence, expect goals to be hard to come by this week.
