Sheffield United Preview – Victory needed in pursuit of Europa League football?

The Blades (8th – W14 D12 L10) away woes continued in midweek. Extending their winless run on their travels in the league to five games with a deserved 2-0 loss at Leicester on Thursday, winning one of their last nine away encounters. Manager Chris Wilder had no complaints with the final score, though, admitting post-match that his team were clearly second-best throughout the King Power contest.

Fortunately, their record at Bramall Lane hints at a swift return to better ways. This season, only five teams – all currently sixth or higher – have registered more points at home than Sheffield United (33 – W10 D3 L5) who are unbeaten on their own patch in six, with five of those victories, since a narrow 1-0 loss to last season’s league champions Man City. Thrashing fourth-placed Chelsea 3-0 last time out on home soil.

With a top-seven finish likely to reward Europa League football next season, there is still everything to play for across these final two fixtures for The Blades. However, not only must they acquire as many points as possible, those directly above them must also drop some with Tottenham and Wolves one and two points better off respectively. Meanwhile, Arsenal are only one position and one point further back in ninth.

Everton Preview – Frustrating season set to peter out in dismal fashion?

Unless they can secure the full quote of points from their final two match-ups, Everton (11th – W12 D10 L14) are destined to conclude an underwhelming league campaign by finishing in the bottom half of the table. The first of those match-ups is undoubtedly the most testing, trying to become only the sixth visiting team this season to win at Bramall Lane, before hosting a relegation-threatened Bournemouth side at Goodison Park on the final day.

Everton have collected fewer away points (15 – W4 D3 L11) so far this season than all but four teams, losing more often than not whilst only managing wins at Southampton, Newcastle, Watford and Norwich – all teams currently beneath them in the table. It would therefore be some departure were they to clinch maximum points away to a Sheffield United outfit sat eighth and boasting the eighth-strongest home record.

In addition, The Toffees will touch down in South Yorkshire hopelessly out of form. Thursday’s 1-1 draw on Merseyside with struggling Aston Villa serving as the latest insipid display from Carlo Ancelotti’s men, who were lambasted for a meek effort in a 3-0 defeat away to Wolves in the preceding fixture, leaving them without a win in four league games (D2 L2) since a 2-1 home win over Leicester at the start of the month.

Sheffield United Vs Everton Betting Advice

Carlo Ancelotti has cut a disgruntled, almost powerless figure during some of his recent post-match interviews. His Everton team seem intent on seeing out a hugely disappointing campaign in lacklustre fashion, registering two of the last twelve points on offer whilst offering up a paltry two goals. Away from home they have fared even worse, conjuring one goal across their latest four away outings which include three losses to nil.


Sheffield United Vs Everton – Key Facts

  • Five wins from their previous six home league games for Sheffield United, who have acquired eight out of ten home victories this season by keeping a clean sheet.
  • It is now four defeats in five away league games for Everton, who are aiming to avoid a third consecutive away loss without scoring (lost recently to nil at Wolves and Tottenham).
  • In their first Premier League meeting for more than eight years, Sheffield United produced an accomplished display to win 2-0 at Goodison Park on Matchday 6 – they last won as the home team in 1993 (D2 thereafter).


This is bordering on a must-win game for Sheffield United, who need to amass more points than the teams above them to qualify for Europe. With Everton seemingly disinterested and providing scant resistance as of late, a straightforward bet on the hosts, who have won five of the last six home league games in a run boasting victories over Chelsea, Tottenham and Wolves, holds substantial appeal at odds-against.
