Sheffield United will hope to bring down the curtains after a memorable and historic 2019/20 campaign. The side plays host to another in-form side Southampton at the Saint Mary’s Stadium. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 6 p.m.
The Blades are currently eight on the table as they head to take on Southampton. The home side is currently on a six-game winning streak in the league. The side is currently sitting 12th on the table with 49 points.
Chris Wilder might have lost hope for making it to the top six, but a win this weekend will prove to be the best form for the side. However, the side enters the match on a two losing streak after defeats to Leicester City and Sheffield United.
The results this season have not been a vintage one for the home side. They started off on a low note with losses threatening the side for relegation. However, the side has picked up since the restart to become a threat.
