Sheffield United, who are in the battle for a top-four finish this season, will be on the hunt for their third straight league win on Saturday. They play host to Brighton, who have at this point forgotten how to win fixtures.

Blades can maintain winning form

Back to back one-goal margin wins over Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have left Sheffield United well in the mix for a top-four finish. They start the weekend in sixth place, just two points outside the Champions League spots.

The Blades have earned a W6 D2 L5 record on home turf in the EPL. They have suffered just one defeat in their last five played there (W3 D1) and that loss was against Man City.

Sheffield United have conceded only 12 goals in 13 home fixtures this season, taking a clean sheet in 38% of games at Bramall Lane. They haven’t been a high scoring side, averaging 1.15 goals per home fixture.

Four of their six home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. Seven of their ten in the league this season (home and away combined) have also been by that margin.

Another trend with them is that the Blades have been drawing at half time in 8 of 13 home games. Sheffield United are on a three-match winning streak against Brighton in all competitions.

Runaway leaders Liverpool are the only side currently in the top flight with a better defensive record than that of the Blades. Can they shut out a low-scoring Brighton?

 

Seagulls to come up short on long trip north?

There has been no win in six by Brighton in the Premier League. They have taken a D4 L2 return in that sequence of games. The forecast of an away looks pretty slim in this fixture.

Brighton have only won twice on their travels this season (D3 L8) and one of those was on the opening weekend of the season. The Seagulls have conceded an average of 1.85 goals per road fixture.

69% of Brighton’s away game has made it over 2.5 goals. In their seven away games played against the current top-ten (starting the weekend), Brighton have a W1 L6 record.

Sheffield United vs Brighton Betting Advice

One win in eleven is all that Brighton have to show from their most recent form (home and away), so they can’t be backed with any confidence. They may well get sucked into a bigger relegation dogfight at the end of the weekend.
