Sheffield United faces West Ham United on Sunday, November 22nd at Bramall Lane for an English Premier League match.
Sheffield United's last match was on November 7th on the road against Chelsea. In that match, Sheffield United was taken down by Chelsea by the final score of 4-1. Sheffield United was able to score the first goal in that match, but could not build on the early lead. Sheffield United could have used the three points in that one, as this club has been miserable to start the season. Sheffield United is 0-1-7, as the club is one of three that do not have wins yet this season. Sheffield United is alone in last place in the Premier League standings, one point behind Burnley. Sheffield United has only scored four goals this season, yet the club has conceded 14; therefore, Sheffield United has a -10 goal differential. Sheffield United will look for its first win of the Premier League season at home against West Ham here, but it will not come easy.
West Ham United is coming off a 1-0 victory over Fulham at home on November 7th. West Ham United has earned points in four of its last five matches overall in Premier League action, putting the club in 12th place in the Premier League table heading into this match. West Ham United has a record of 3-2-3, as it has been a decent start to the season for the Hammers. West Ham United would love to take advantage of a weak Sheffield United squad and earn three important road points; and to do so, the offense is going to have to start fast. Sheffield United's counterattack has been nonexistent this season, so an early West Ham lead could be enough for the Hammers to take over.
The last time Sheffield United and West Ham United met was on January 10th of 2020. In that match, Sheffield United was victorious by a final score of 1-0.
I think we see two teams coming off a long break that need a few minutes to get back into the swing of things in Premier League action. I would not be surprised to see both teams scoring in this one, as even though Sheffield's offense has been abysmal, I could see the team cracking the back of the net. I am going to take a draw here, as I think a 1-1 or 2-2 result could be in store.
