Sheffield United News and Form – Can the Blades beat West Ham?

The Blades have lost their last two league games, so they will be looking for a return to some form. Granted those were back to back losses against Liverpool and Manchester City away from home. So they were totally excusable. The question is, can they find their feet back at Bramall Lane on Friday night. The Blades have lost only one of their last six home games, winning three of those. Overall this season the Blades have picked up a W4 D2 L4 record in the Premier League.

West Ham News and Form – Can the Hammers win at Sheffield United?

The Hammers secured a 4-0 home win over Bournemouth in their last league game. That was the first game in charge for David Moyes on his return to the club. The Irons have been having a rough time of things on their travels this season. They have taken only a W3 D3 L4 road record this season. The positive out of that is that two of those three road victories have happened in their last four away games (L2). Those were both 1-0 successes at Chelsea and Southampton. So there has at least been some kind of improvement from them. Can they build on that success over Bournemouth at the start of the year?

The Irons average under a goal per away game this season, taking three clean sheets. Less than half of West Ham’s away games this season have finished under 2.5 goals. Of the six league victories that the Irons have secured this season, four of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Three of their four away losses have been by a margin of at least two goals. A half time away draw is not unreasonable, with the Hammers having been level at the break in six of their road fixtures. Four of those six half time draws were 0-0 results.

Sheffield United vs West Ham Predictions

Sheffield United to win: The Blades can shake off those recent away losses against the top two by collecting three points in this one. The Hammers still have a lot to prove and a home win over the struggling Bournemouth is no real indication of drastic improvement. Home win.
