West Ham vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).

Sheffield may have been inducted into the top division just this summer, but they surely are not performing like one. With a solid backline, they have placed themselves at the moment as the best defensive unit in the competition along with Liverpool.

While the away handicap for the day will certainly prove to be a challenge, the off-form of West Ham could act as a blessing for the visitors. Prima facie, the upper hand goes to the guests marginally. And in regards to scoring, as expected, due to the hardships of being on the road, goals should be scarce in nature.

West Ham vs Sheffield United Prediction

The Irons lost the last day on the road against West Ham to keep in track with their dismal run. The final scoreline was 2-0, as all the guests could chip in with, was two yellow cards. However, the Blades are on cloud nine after defeating the top-tier Gunners the same match-day, courtesy – a solitary goal.

As of now, Manuel Pellegrini’s men are winless in their previous four games on the trot and lost three of these as well. They conceded two or more goals in all of these fixtures while failing to score in two.

At home, the team lost three of their former five clashes and conceded twice or more in six of their preceding nine.

Meanwhile, their opposite number is unbeaten in their preceding two games, and importantly, has not faced a single loss away from home this whole campaign.

These being said, the chances for a home win is likely ruled out.

Coming to goals, Chris Wilder’s men may have been monsters at the back so far, but it begs to be mentioned that they are timid at the front. Till now, they have scored a total of just eight goals, and with the additional away handicap to deal with, we probably are in line for a low goal-scoring affair.
