Sheffield United will win

Sheffield United haven’t collected as many points as Sunderland so far this season but we have them down to win this game. The reason for that is largely owing to their home form. The Blades have won three of their last four home games, which is a starkly contrasted picture to Sunderland’s away form where they’ve won just one of five! Sheffield United have also beaten Sunderland the last two times they’ve hosted them. They’re a couple of rather good omens!

A game lacking goals

Our next prediction for this match is that it will be a low scoring one. The home side, Sheffield United, have seen three of their last four matches fall short of the 2.5 goal mark. Sunderland have gone under 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches and their away record is the same with 60% of their past five ending south of the 2.5 mark. Finally, we can bring in the head to head record as well; three of the last five clashes between these two have fallen short of the all important cut off.

Can Sunderland maintain their strong start?

It might be early days but these two will be more than content with the start they’ve made to the Championship season with both holding top half positions and in reasonable form. If either can find a way to win this game then a decent start would become an excellent one.

Sheffield United suffered a bitter playoff failure at the end of last term but there is a little sign or two of a hangover following them into this season; the Blades haven’t been woeful but they’ve not exactly hit the ground running either. That said, a win here will likely see them into those top six positions.

Sheffield United Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Norrington-Davies, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Lowe, Fleck, Norwood, Berge, Baldock, Sharp, Ndiaye
