Sheffield United vs West Ham Prediction

Sheffield United completed back to back defeats in the Premier League for the first time since earning promotion after both Liverpool and Manchester City took them down on the road with a 2-0 scoreline.

The hosts, however, managed to bounce back to winning ways in their most recent FA Cup clash by posting a 2-1 victory over AFC Flyde. At the moment, the Blades are sitting eight on the ladder, with a safe seven-point cushion over West Ham.

Meanwhile, the Hammers pulled off what was their biggest win of the season yet, by slotting four unanswered goals past Bournemouth at home. The visitors also tasted success in their respective FA Cup encounter with Gillingham and will be making the trip to Bramall Lane on the back of a positive 2-0 scoreline.

Be that as it may, West Ham have been erratic on the road this term. Miserably, they have dropped points in seven of their past ten outings.

Furthermore, the visiting contingent have secured the bragging rights just once in their last four trips to this stadium. In sharp contrast, Sheffield are currently unbeaten in their previous three games in front of the home crowd.

Taking into account that they have stumbled just once in their last seven fixtures here as well, count on Sheffield United to make no mistake in picking up the win this week.

Additionally, the hosts have looked organized at the back. They have conceded just ten goals at home so far, and have kept a clean sheet four times already.

On the other hand, West Ham have failed to get their names on the scoresheet in four of their last seven outings in the Premier League.

To top it off, all of the past four first-division fixtures at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Hence, expect a low scoring affair by all means in this one.
