West Ham vs Sheffield United: Predictions
David Moyes has been working wonders with the Hammers this season, guiding the east London club to sixth after 23 games, just one point adrift of Liverpool in the fourth and final Champions League spot. The Hammers will have been disappointed to only manage a 0-0 draw against Fulham last time out, but that did extend their run of just one defeat in nine Premier League games.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, have rallied in recent weeks, winning three of their last six Premier League games after failing to pick up a single victory across their first 17 outings. Still, Chris Wilder’s men remain rooted to the bottom of the table with 12 points separating them and safety. The Blades must keep picking up unlikely wins if they’re to stand any chance of pulling off a great escape.
