Sheffield United Preview – Can Sheff Utd take bragging rights?

Sheffield United seem unable to shake off their disappointing end to last season this term as well as The Blades have lost all three of their competitive matches so far in this new season, which includes early back-to-back defeats in the Premier League.

Losses to Wolves 2-0 at home and a disappointing defeat at Aston Villa 1-0 in the top flight were either side of being bundled out of the League Cup on penalties by another Premier League outfit, Burnley, so this upcoming Yorkshire derby against Leeds United takes on even more importance with not just bragging rights at stake but also a precious three points as well.

After putting together a solid six-match unbeaten run towards the end of last season (winning five of these), Sheffield United have now lost their last two matches on the trot at Bramall Lane while goals were also in short supply with 68% of the host’s home games resulting in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:

Leeds United Preview – Can upstart Leeds grab the points?

Goals have certainly featured in Leeds United’s opening two matches in their return to the Premier League as they lost 4-3 away at Anfield against Liverpool but won by the same margin against fellow promoted side, Fulham, in last weekend’s win at Elland Road.

In between these eventful and entertaining matches was a loss on penalties to League One outfit, Hull City, in the League Cup, but this competition is far from being a priority for Marcelo Bielsa’s side with Premier League survival being the number one objective this season.

It’s been 16 years since Leeds were last in the English top flight so there’s very little to draw upon in terms of trends or statistics but four of the last five meetings between these two teams at Bramall Lane have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
