Sheffield United vs Bournemouth – Top Two Betting Tips

We're bringing you our Premier League predictions for Saturday's clash between Sheffield United and AFC Bournemouth. Some might dub this match a ‘relegation six-pointer' but believe it's still too early to be calling it that.

However, a win for the Blades would close the gap between the two clubs to just a single point, and the Cherries could put even more distance between themselves and the drop zone with a win of their own.

Both Teams to Score

  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six encounters between Sheff Utd and Bournemouth.
  • Four of Sheff Utd's last five outings have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net in four of Bournemouth's last five fixtures.

Over 2.5 Goals

  • At least three goals have been scored in three of the last six meetings between these two clubs.
  • Four of the Blades' last five matches have witnessed at least three goals scored, including a 5-0 defeat to Arsenal.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been produced in five of Bournemouth's last six matches in all competitions, including a 6-1 loss at Man City.

Sheffield United vs Bournemouth Lineups and Last Match

Sheff Utd

The Blades' trip to the AmEx last time out didn't start as they had planned, as Brighton took the lead after just six minutes. However, Sheff Utd stayed in the game, looking compact and solid in all areas, and once Brighton had a man sent off in the 69th minute, the visitors started to push forward more.

In the end, the pressure grew and Sheff Utd scored the equaliser, and the point their play deserved, although there was an element of fortune about the goal which has been credited as an Adam Webster own goal. The likes of Chris Basham, Max Lowe, Rhian Brewster, Rhys Norrington-Davies, John Egan, Tom Davies and Daniel Jebbison look set to miss the Bournemouth game through injury or illness.

Predicted Lineup – Foderingham (GK), Baldock, Robinson, Trusty, Bogle, Thomas, Norwood, Hamer, Souza, McAtee & Archer

Bournemouth

The Cherries picked up a surprise three points at home to high-flying Newcastle before the international break. Following a goalless first half, the hosts took the lead on the hour mark via Dominic Solanke and 13 minutes later, they and Solanke doubled their advantage.

Newcastle weren't at their best but the Bournemouth fans won't care about that as their club picked up a crucial three points in their bid to avoid relegation. Tyler Adams, Alex Scott, Ryan Fredericks, Emiliano Marcondes and Darren Randolph are expected to miss the trip to Sheffield this weekend but Philip Billing and Max Aarons should start the game.

Predicted Lineup – Neto (GK), Senesi, Aarons, Kelly, Zabarnyi, Billing, Cook, Tavernier, Solanke, Kluivert & Semenyo

Player to Watch: Gustavo Hamer

Gustavo Hamer enjoyed his best goal-scoring season in professional football in 2022/23 whilst playing for Coventry City in the Championship. The Dutch midfielder netted 11 times in the league alone before being signed by Sheff Utd in the summer transfer window.

Hamer has struggled somewhat to make the step up to the Premier League has managed to score two goals in 11 starts and could play a vital role in the Blades' attempts to avoid relegation. Goals are going to be an issue for most teams that earn promotion to the Premier League and Sheff Utd are going to need their midfielders, especially Hamer, to chip in with a decent amount of goals throughout the campaign.

We have singled out Hamer as our player to watch this weekend, as he could make the difference in what will be viewed as a winnable game for the home side.
