Sheffield United – Blades looking sharper of late?

“We’re alive.” Despite his side sitting 13 points adrift of Premier League safety at the foot of the table, Sheffield United (W2 D2 L17) manager Chris Wilder still believes his team are capable of turning around a dire situation. On recent evidence, after earning two wins from their last four league games, perhaps there is still signs of life about a side that finished a respectable ninth on their return to the top tier last term.

It was always going to be a near impossible task following up last week’s gargantuan effort at Old Trafford, when showing greater desire in a thoroughly deserved 2-1 victory over Man Utd, with something similar at the Etihad against the league leaders. However, there were positives to be had from Saturday’s narrow loss to Man City. None more so than limiting a side which scored five in its previous outing to one goal.

The sorry team on that occasion were West Brom, offering further hope that Sheffield United, with four wins in their past six competitive matches across the league and FA Cup, can continue their mid-season revival at the Baggies expense. For that to happen, though, Wilder’s men will need to better dismal returns of one win and only six goals scored from ten home league games this season (W1 D1 L8).


Mateus Pereira To Score



West Brom – Pereira to the fore once more?

Having spurned the opportunity to claim three valuable points last time out against a direct rival in the battle for survival, West Brom (W2 D6 L13) are immediately presented with another, this time against rock-bottom Sheffield United. The Baggies prevailed 1-0 when these sides met at The Hawthorns in November, with England U-21 international Conor Gallagher opening his Premier League account in a 1-0 triumph.

More recently it has been a Brazilian providing the vast majority of the team’s attacking output. A goal and an assist in Saturday’s frustrating 2-2 draw with 18th-placed Fulham, a game they trailed early doors but led after the break, means that of the seven league goals scored since Sam Allardyce was appointed manager in December, Mateus Pereira has had a direct hand in five with four goals and an assist.

Big Sam will once again be relying on his Brazilian playmaker pulling the strings at Bramall Lane, where their hosts have kept a solitary clean sheet in ten league outings in 2020-21. Moreover, the Baggies have netted at least once in each of their past five away league games (W1 D2 L2), a run which seem them secure unlikely draws at Liverpool and Man City while also scoring three in a 3-2 victory at Wolves.

Sheffield United Vs West Brom Betting Advice

The Premier League’s bottom two go at it inside Bramall Lane in what is a fixture of huge significance at the foot of the table. The pair are already cut adrift in the bottom three, meaning a draw will suit neither. So we can probably rule out the spoils being shared, especially as just one of the 13 meetings (all in the Championship) to have taken place here in Sheffield concluded without a winner.


Sheffield United Vs West Brom – Key Facts:

  • No team has scored fewer goals at home this season than Sheffield United, whose tally of six is four fewer than West Brom have managed in the same amount of away matches.
  • Eight of Sheffield United‘s 21 league defeats this season were via a 1-0 scoreline, including the reverse of this fixture.
  • Out of the 13 meetings held in Sheffield between the clubs since 1989, only one finished in a draw. Moreover, West Brom avoided losing in four of the past five such matches (W3 D1 L1).


Sheffield United arrive with renewed belief following four wins in six matches in all competitions, but have one win at home all season. Winning breeds confidence, though, something West Brom have sampled just once under Sam Allardyce (W1 D2 L4). Yet the Baggies are finding form in front of goal (six in last four league games) and can boast one defeat in their past four away Premier League games (W1 D2 L1).
