Here are our Premier League predictions for Sheff Utd's trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

Hot Tip – Draw

  • Crystal Palace have only won one of their last six matches in all competitions.
  • Sheff Utd have only won one of their last six outings in league and cup.

Another reason that we have a draw as our main prediction is that neither of these teams are in good form right now and both struggle to keep clean sheets.

Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United team news

Palace

The Eagles made the trip to the Emirates Stadium for their last league game but will wish they had stayed at home. Arsenal scored five goals without reply against Crystal Palace in what was a dominating display from the home side. Roy Hodgson's men simply have to write off this result and start afresh against Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

Cheick Doucoure, Michael Olise, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Rob Holding and Joel Ward are all injury concerns for the hosts, while Jordan Ayew is away with Ghana at AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Clyne, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Richards, Schlupp, Hughes, Lerma, Eze & Mateta

Sheff Utd

Sheff Utd picked up a decent point at home to West Ham last time out, having to come from behind on two occasions to secure a 2-2 draw. The Hammers first got in front just before the half-hour mark but Ben Brereton equalised for the Blades with his first goal since joining on loan from Villarreal in the forty-fourth minute. A seventy-ninth-minute penalty looked to have won the game for West Ham only for Sheff Utd to convert a spot kick of their own via Ollie McBurnie in the thirteenth minute of time added on.

The Blades look set to be with the services of Chris Basham, John Egan, George Baldock, Max Lowe and Tom Davies due to injury while Rhian Brewster is suspended.

Predicted Lineup: Foderingham (GK), Robinson, Ahmedhodžić, Trusty, Bogle, Hamer, Souza, McAtee, Brooks, Brereton & Osula

Player to Watch: Ben Brereton Diaz

Sheffield United brought in Ben Brereton Diaz on loan from Villarreal with the hopes that the Chilean striker would add goals to the team.

The former Blackburn Rovers striker scored on his Premier League debut against West Ham and we're backing the 24-year-old to impress once again for the Blades on Tuesday night against Crystal Palace.

While his goals might not be enough to keep Sheff Utd up, Brereton Diaz will be eager to prove himself in England's top flight ahead of a possible transfer in the summer as his time at Villarreal has proved fruitless.
