In the ninth round of the Premier League on Sunday 22 November, Sheffield United will try to break the streak of failures in the match with West Ham – we have made a forecast for this meeting.
Few expected such a weak start from the “blades” in the current championship. Sheffield United played well last season, solidified well in the summer transfer window, but the results after eight rounds are simply terrible. Chris Wilder’s wards scored only one point and occupy the last place in the championship standings. Together with Burnley and West Bromwich, the Blades are one of three teams that have yet to win the championship.
Sheffield United are one of the least damaging teams in this championship. For eight fights, Wilder’s guys scored only four goals, while they themselves have already conceded fourteen. Although in the past season it was defense that was one of the trump cards in the team’s game.
The only point Sheffield United got in a home match with direct rival Fulham, rolling with him into a goalless draw. In three other matches, the “blades” “dry” lost at home to Wolverhampton (0: 2), Leeds (0: 1) and Manchester City (0: 1).
John Fleck and Lys Mousse returned to training in the general group and are ready to take part in the match, which should add creativity to the attack. Jack O’Connell remains in the infirmary. In question for the game Sander Berge, Enda Stevens, John Egan and Rian Brewster
The London club has had a weak start this season, having lost both matches in the first rounds. Conclusions have been made. David Moyes found the right words and in the next six matches West Ham appeared as a fighting and rather uncompromising team. The Hammer’s calendar for this period turned out to be difficult, but they lost only to Liverpool (1: 2), although in terms of the game they looked no worse than the Liverpool.
At the same time, they managed to beat not so simple opponents, with the exception of Fulham (1: 0) in the last round. Prior to this, West Ham defeated Wolverhampton (4: 0), then defeated Leicester (3: 0) and drew twice – with Tottenham (3: 3) and Manchester City (1: 1) ).
As a result of such results, Moyes’ wards have moved up to 12th place in the standings and have 11 points on their balance sheet.
It should be noted, however, that West Ham rarely wins on the road. In their last 14 away games in the Premier League, the Hammers have achieved success only twice.
Only Andrei Yarmolenko, who was diagnosed with coronavirus, will definitely not play in the match. The participation of Angelo Ogbonna and Michale Antonio is in question.
In all four West Ham away games in the current championship, the forecast was “total over 2.5”.
In three of the four away matches, West Ham played the “both will score” bet.
Sheffield United have lost seven of their eight games this season.
In all four of Sheffield’s home games, the forecast was “total under 2.5”.
The Blades have scored just one goal in four home games.
Last season, Sheffield beat West Ham 1-0 at home and ended in a 1-1 draw away.

Guests are the favorite of the match, but not everything is so simple. The Blades looked very good in the matches against Liverpool and Manchester City, but they could not stand it a little. The owners need to score points, and urgently. In “Sheffield” has character, especially in matches at home. “Blades” are good at restraining attacks, but their own attack fails. It was time to work on the mistakes. West Ham attacking team, but also miss the hammers often. It is unlikely that the meeting will be effective here. Most likely, everything will be decided by one or two accurate hits.
Our forecast – total under 2.5 goals for 1.83 in BC Winline
