BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

Sheffield United vs

It’s Sheffield United vs Fulham in the early kick-off on Sunday. The action gets underway at noon, and BT Sport Box Office will be screening the game for a fee. Both teams will be desperate to stop the rot in this bottom of the table clash.

Sheffield United

You could forgive Sheffield United fans for being excited when the 2020/21 season started. Last year the Blades finished 9th in the Premier League, just two points behind Arsenal! Unfortunately, this season Sheffield United have completely tanked. Four games down and not a single point to show for their efforts.

Chris Wilder’s men have not won a league game since a 3-0 home win against Chelsea back in July. This season the Blades have lost to Arsenal, Leeds, Villa and Wolves. This weekends match against Fulham is a must-win game. Thankfully, the only team with a worse record than Sheffield United are Fulham!

It’s always tricky to pick out a winner when you have two teams playing this poorly. The bookmakers are favouring the home side, Boylesports is giving you 11/10 on Sheffield winning and 14/5 on Fulham. It would be a brave man (or woman) who lumped big money on either of these teams winning.

Fulham

The game against Sheffield United is likely to be Fulham’s only hope of securing points away from home this season. A win at Bramall Lane could see Scott Parker’s senses filled up like a greasy chip butty.

While it’s true to state that Sheffield United are not in great form at the moment. Nevertheless, they’re not conceding many goals. Arsenal got two against them, and Leeds beat them with a single goal. This will be a concern for a Fulham team that struggles to score at the best of times.

Punters might want to look elsewhere for betting opportunities this weekend. This game seems as difficult to call as a top of the table clash. If you forced me to make a prediction, I would bet on BTTS NO, but it would be a small bet.

Team News

Sheffield United are without John Egan, John Fleck, David McGoldrick, Lys Mousset and Simon Moore.

Fulham has doubts over Mario Lemina, Harrison Reed and Kenny Tete.

Match Prediction

This game is a difficult one to call, both teams are without a win this season. I think the safest bet is BTTS NO.

Odds 4/5
