Today's Predictions for Sheffield Utd vs West Brom

Sheffield United have won nine of their last 11 home matches ahead of their latest test against West Brom on Wednesday evening. Read our top Sheffield Utd vs West Brom predictions for this week’s fixture.

Sheffield United to Win

Sheffield United’s FA Cup dreams were dashed at the weekend in the semi-finals by Man City, though the Blades’ automatic promotion charge is on track in the Championship and they can cement their position in second with a win over WBA on Wednesday. United have won nine of their last 11 matches at Bramall Lane and home advantage should be key when they host the Baggies this week. The visitors have dropped points in five of their last seven assignments and the first of our football betting tips this week recommends opposing them in the match result market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United know how to get the job done at Bramall Lane, though their performances there are rarely goal-filled and five of their last six matches there in the Championship have featured under 2.5 goals. The Blades have already played West Brom twice this term in league and cup, and two or fewer goals were notched on each occasion. Margins should be slim again on Wednesday, and our second Sheffield Utd vs West Brom prediction recommends a stake on under 2.5 goals once more.

Sheffield Utd vs West Brom Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Sheffield Utd vs West Brom lineups and team news for Wednesday’s Championship tussle below.

Sheffield Utd

Ben Osborn, Enda Stevens, Rhian Brewster, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Jack O'Connell are all out injured for Sheffield United at present. The Blades held out until 43 minutes of their FA Cup semi-final against Man City on Saturday before they eventually succumbed to a 3-0 defeat.

Predicted Lineup for Sheffield Utd: Foderingham – Ahmedhodžić, Egan, Robinson – Baldock, Berge, Norwood, Fleck, Lowe – Jebbison, Nidaye

West Brom

Dara O'Shea, Grady Diangana, Adam Reach, Daryl Dik and Mat Phillips are out of action for WBA this week. The Baggies were beaten 2-1 at home by Sunderland in their last assignment, despite taking a second half lead. Albion are still just two points outside the playoff positions, however.

Predicted Lineup for West Brom: Palmer – Furlong, Ajayi, Pieters, Townsend – Molumby, Yokuslu – Wallace, Swift, Ahearne-Grant – Thomas-Asante

Player to Watch – Iliman Ndiaye

Iliman Ndiaye was the star of the show when Sheffield United last played and beat West Brom in October. The 23-year-old attacker scored one goal and made the other in the Blades’ 2-0 win at The Hawthorns and Ndiaye will be determined to be a difference-maker again in Wednesday’s rematch.
