Sheffield United vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
After losing to Burnley and Crystal Palace on the road in recent outings, Sheffield United went on to defeat Manchester United last time out with a 1-2 scoreline. The Red Devils were trying to regain their top spot on the table at Old Trafford.
The surprising win will improve the morale as they return home to face the Albions in the next Premier League fixture on Tuesday.
With 11 points in the campaign so far this season, West Brom is at the second-last position on the table, just three points ahead of the Blades.
The visitor is on a two-game losing streak in the league, following a massive 0-5 loss at home to the likes of Manchester City in their schedule. Their poor form in recent games will open doors for the home team to climb up the table.

Sheffield United vs West Brom Prediction
Bramall Lane will welcome their team back after the Manchester United win. However, the clash with the Albions will come after Manchester City visits them on Saturday. Be as it may, any result in that clash will still not change their dynamics against the Tuesday guest as they are close to each other on the table.
Stepping into the Tuesday game, Sheffield United is likely to continue their scoring streak. With both teams displaying a weak defense, goals can come at any time. The safest bet of the goals area will be over 1.5 goals in full-time at 1.40 odds in the encounter.
The home win is the most anticipated result, as the host has shown a slight improvement in recent league clashes in their schedule. Besides, West Brom will not be a huge threat with their poor form on the road this season in the Premier League.
