Sheffield United vs Everton odds
Odds correct as of 15:30 on August 31
Sheffield United’s return to the Premier League has not gone to plan so far, suffering defeats in all three of their matches. After opening with a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, Sheffield United thought they were heading to a point in their second game, level with Nottingham Forest late on. But Chris Wood’s 89th-minute strike denied the Blades the draw, and there was a similar story last time out. This time Man City were the opponents and Jayden Bogle had equalised following Erling Haaland’s opener with five minutes of normal time left to play. But just three minutes later, Rodri won it for Man City, making it three losses from three for Sheffield United.
However, it could be worse, they could be Everton. Having narrowly escaped relegation last season, Everton are seemingly doing their all to go to the Championship. After three games the Toffees are bottom of the table, without a point and are the only Premier League team still to score. Two 1-0 defeats to Fulham and Wolves sandwiched a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Aston Villa, and Sean Dyche is already looking to have a hard battle on his hands. There were finally goals in the EFL Cup for Everton in midweek as they came from behind to beat Doncaster Rovers, while Sheffield United lost to Lincoln City on penalties.
The Toffees are also unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games in Yorkshire (W5 D3) since a 2-0 loss at Hull in January 2015 and will be hoping that run continues.

Sheffield United vs Everton match tip
Everton may be goalless in the Premier League but they finally found their feet in midweek in the EFL Cup. It wasn’t a pretty match as they had to come from behind against lower-league Doncaster Rovers, but Everton actually scored two goals! One came from Beto who had been signed just the day before, and will be hoping to hit the ground running in the Premier League.
