The Premier League’s bottom two sides face off in this midweek fixture as Sheffield United welcome home West Brom. The match schedules for Tuesday at Bramall Lane, with kickoff at 9 pm.
Meanwhile, West Brom, who narrowly beat Chris Wilder this season, is looking to double over the Blades for the first time since 1988 to claim their second away win of the campaign.
In what can sum up as a terrible start to their 2020-21 season campaign, performances over the last week gave Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder hope to their danger start the season. A surprise 2-1 win over Manchester United on Wednesday was a good start.
However, a hard-fought 1-0 loss to Manchester City provided their eighth loss in top-flight match by a 1-0 scoreline. A major positive sign was how City managed to limit their chances for league leaders to few chances.
The Blades failed to win any of their first 18 matches in all competitions this season, have since won four of their last six games. It includes two triumphs in the FA Cup against League One position.
Sam Allardyce quickly pointed to their defensive frailties following their 2-2 draw to relegation-battled Fulham. The side is currently six points apart from Brighton, who just sits outside the top three. Since their draw to Liverpool, Baggies picked up four points from a possible 18.
