Sheffield United Prediction – Can Sheffield United open account?

Newly promoted Sheffield United will play their first home match of the new Premier League season on Sunday afternoon when the hosts play host to Crystal Palace at Bramall Lane in a game where United will fancy their chances of grabbing their first win of the new term.

A 1-1 draw on the south coast on the opening day of the Premier League season last Saturday saw Sheffield United pick up a solid point on the road, and as they return to Bramall Lane this Sunday, The Blades will be confident of further success here.

Sheffield United’s consistent results in last season’s triumphant Championship campaign resulted in The Blades grabbing the second automatic promotion spot behind title winners, Norwich City, from under their Yorkshire rivals’ noses, Leeds United.

Blades boss, Chris Wilder, has further boosted his attacking personnel in the shape of new signings Robinson (Preston NE) and McBurnie (Swansea City) to link up with existing forwards, Sharp and McGoldrick, with the latter two providing 38 goals between them last season.

Crystal Palace Prediction – Can Crystal Palace continue form on the road?

Following a dour 0-0 draw at home to Everton at Selhurst Park in last week’s Premier League season opener, Crystal Palace will make their way up north to Yorkshire to take on one of the top flight’s newcomers, Sheffield United, on Sunday afternoon.

Immediate thoughts would be that Palace would make their way up to Yorkshire and settle for another point on the road, but Roy Hodgson’s side finished in strong fashion on their travels in the latter stages of last season’s top flight campaign.

Although they found it difficult to gain wins at Selhurst Park from the end of December through to early March, The Eagles ended their season with 5 wins out of their last 6 away matches with wins recorded at Leicester City, Burnley, Newcastle United, Arsenal and Cardiff City.

However, with all their positive efforts and results on the road, Crystal Palace have a propensity for also conceding goals and this is evident as 10 of Crystal Palace’s last 15 away matches have resulted with both teams scoring.

The challenge for Hodgson now is if he can continue to motivate and get the best out of want-away Wilfred Zaha.


Key-Facts – Sheffield United v Crystal Palace

  • Sheffield United have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches at Bramall Lane
  • 10 of Crystal Palace’s last 15 away matches resulted with both teams scoring
  • The last meeting between these two teams at Bramall Lane ended in a 3-2 home win


Betting Tips Verdict

Both Sheffield United and Crystal Palace possess the necessary personnel to score here in a match both teams will fancy their chances of winning.
