Sheffield United continue their search for a first Premier League wins after the end of the international break. The side play host to West Ham at the Bramall Lane. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at5 pm.
The Hammers make their trip to Yorkshire on the back of a late victory against Fulham before the international break. The Hammers are currently 12th on the table due to the win while their opponents struggle with relegation.
The five defeats in Sheffield’s past seven matches come with the margin of one goal. However, it remains overly harsh to criticize the performance under Chris Wilder. After securing a top ten finish last season, all the pressure falls on Wilder to rediscover their form.
Despite their 4-1 loss to Chelsea, there were positives to take home. However, their lack of an attacking threat in the final third remains a hurdle, especially with the miss of Jack O’Connell to make the difference.
The signing of Rhian Brewster looked like the perfect addition to a bolstered squad and, in the long run, for the club. However, the 21-year-old is yet to adapt to the pressure of the Premier League.
On the other hand, Davi Moyes is making life easier for the Hammer since overcoming a disappointing start in his managerial role. Their last win against Fulham elevated the side within two points of the seventh position.
