Two sides are looking to carry their first points of the Premier League lock horns this weekend. Sheffield United play host to Fulham this Sunday. The match schedules at Bramall Lane with kickoff at 12 pm.
Blades and Cottagers are currently stuck at the Premier League table’s bottom with no points so far. Both sides have a goal of four goals since the start of the season with eight matches.
Chris Wilder is experienced the second season syndrome in charge of the Blades side who got off to a flying start in the previous campaign. It is proving to be a tough challenge for Wilder, especially with their poor goal scoring record.
The Blades are currently on four defeats, with only one goal scored so far. McGoldrick scored the first goal of the Blades’ season following their 2-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. The side almost qualified for the Europa league but could be facing a relegation battle, especially with a weak transfer window.
Scott Parker is another manager under pressure in the Premier League looking for their first win. He might feel like the international break came at a wrong time, especially following their 1-0 reverse at Wolverhampton Wanderers. The stakes keep getting high for Parker to remain at the helm at the Craven Cottage. Sunday will leave a major impact on both managers.
