Fulham vs Sheffield United odds
*Odds correct as of 15:50 on October 5
Fulham will be looking to get back on track in the Premier League after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Craven Cottage on Monday. Two goals in two minutes from Mykhailo Mudryk and Armando Broja meant Marco Silva’s side suffered their first defeat in four games in all competitions after wins against Luton and Norwich were sandwiched with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, followed up their heaviest ever top flight defeat to Newcastle with more misery in a 2-0 loss to West Ham to make it seven defeats in their eight games across all comps this season. Their 2-2 draw against fellow strugglers Everton remains their only point to date.
The Blades have faced 156 shots in the Premier League this season (22.3 per game), more than any other side. They’re currently the only team on record (since 2003/04) to have faced more than 20 shots per game across a Premier League campaign.
