Brighton vs Sheffield United: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Two of the Premier League’s biggest strugglers go head-to-head on Sunday when Brighton host Sheffield United at 12:00 PM (UK time).
Brighton vs Sheffield United: Predictions
Brighton have won just two of their opening 13 games so far this season, sitting 16th in the table with only 11 points to their name. The Seagulls are enduring a four-game winless streak and, to make matters worse, have failed to score in each of their last two matches.
But if you think Graham Potter has it bad, spare a thought for Chris Wilder, whose Sheffield United side are languishing bottom of the table with only a single point to their name so far.
Only Burnley (6) have netted fewer than the Blades’ seven goals over the opening 13 games of 2020/21, while only West Brom (26) have conceded more than the 24 they’ve allowed.
After such a positive first campaign back in the top flight in 2019/20, where Sheffield United finished ninth, few could have foreseen such a wretched start to the current season. Now, it’s all about getting some points on the board as quickly as possible before the Blades are cut adrift.
