Sheffield United vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.
The Blades are easily the worst team in the competition at the moment, and are placed dead last in the table. In fact, they have lost all but one of their games, and even this sole undefeated fixture was a draw against the newly-promoted Fulham.
Going on, they have so far scored a total of just four goals all through this campaign, and in return they have conceded a total of 14 goals.
Suffice it to say that there are already talks regarding if their previous season in the PL (where they had managed a top-10 finish) was a fluke. They had made huge waves in 2019-20 after getting promoted from the Championship.
But now, from the looks of things, they are gearing up for a return to the lower division.
The Hammers, who have been on an impressive run lately, will surely try to make full use of this fixture against the weakest team in the competition. Note that they have lost just twice in the last eight game-weeks, and the defeats had come against Liverpool, and Everton.
In short, David Moyes’s men will easily have the edge this Sunday at the Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United vs West Ham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the previous fifteen overall encounters had goals from both teams.

- Five of the preceding seven clashes had goals from both teams.
- Five of the last six meetings had three or more goals.
Sheffield United vs West Ham: Prediction
The Blades lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, the Hammers won 1-0 at home against Fulham.
Going on, Wilder’s men had lost eight of their preceding nine fixtures, and they are also on a ten-game winless run. They had also remained so in 13 of their last 15 match-ups, and it’s over four months since they won at home. In fact, they have not even scored in four of their last six home appearances.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in six of their last eight fixtures, and these two defeats had come against two of the best teams in the competition.
On the road, they were unbeaten in seven of their last ten fixtures, and had scored three or more goals in five of the past nine such matches.
As such, expect West Ham to be the better team on the pitch against the worst squad in the PL this Sunday.
