West Ham vs Sheffield United
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 15 February 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.
The Hammers are one of the best teams in the competition, and are one of the main contenders to qualify for Europe at the end of the season.
They are currently placed sixth in the table, and have an opportunity to break into the top-most tier, since the third-placed Leicester and fourth-placed Liverpool are taking on each other this weekend.
Going on, David Moyes’s men have also been scoring goals in plenty lately, and they are at home this Monday, which should increase their chances further – especially against the dead-last placed Blades.
Chris Wilder’s men have easily been the worst team in the league this whole season, and are the frontrunners to get relegated at the end of 2020-21.
They are also on the road, and have been utterly dismal in away fixtures all through this campaign. Furthermore, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the past several years.
By the looks of things, expect West Ham to deliver a winning performance this Monday.
West Ham vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-1 win for the Hammers.
- They were unbeaten in 14 of the former 18 encounters.
- They have failed to score just thrice in the past eleven games.
- The hosts have a 100% unbeaten record at this ground since 1990, barring one single match-up.
West Ham vs Sheffield United Prediction
Moyes’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road, by Fulham. In the meantime, the Blades lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Chelsea.
Going on, the Hammers were unbeaten in 11 of their previous 12 overall match-ups, and their only defeats in the period had come against the defending champions, Liverpool.
Note that they had also gone on a six-fixture winning run in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 22 of their last 28 overall games, and three of the total six wins during this stretch had come in the FA Cup, against teams from lower divisions.
In addition, Moyes’s men do also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
Taking these observations into account, expect West Ham to post the three points on the board this Monday.
