Leeds United vs. Sheffield United Match Analysis and Prediction

Leeds United has a chance to climb up the top half of the Premier League and record back-to-back wins when they face off against Sheffield United. The match schedules for Saturday at Elland Road, with kickoff at 5 pm.

Before the international break, Leeds registered a 2-1 win over Fulham. On the other hand, Blades went down with a 5-0 loss to Leicester City in their most recent league outing.

It dates back to September when Leeds United made it back to back successive wins in the Premier League. The aim for Marco Bielsa will be to make it a win against the division worst team.

Patrick Bamford became the star of the night with a goal and setting up the assist for Raphinha in their 2-1 victory. The win leaves the side 11th on the table, two points behind Aston Villa above them and a point below ninth-placed Arsenal.

Even though the inconsistencies are shown, it has been an impressive first campaign for the Whites. Bielsa will be eager to play to build momentum ahead of their tasking schedules. The Whites have Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham in four of their next five fixtures.

All form goes away when Blades enter into this clash with something to give their disgruntled fans a Yorkshire derby win. The visitors threw away any chance of survival after recording six defeats in seven matches.
