Sheffield United vs West Ham Betting Tips

Sheffield United have lost their previous two Premier League games, the result of which is that they dropped a few places in the table. Before their losing streak started, the Blades were in the top 5. They surely want to get back there as soon as possible and a win over the Hammers could get to a much higher position.

Still, even if they don’t finish the season in the top half of the table, they need to feel good about themselves. This team has just come from the Championship and is already one of the toughest teams in the league, especially when it comes to defending. Speaking of which, there are only two teams that have allowed fewer goals than Sheffield United. And those two teams are Liverpool and Leicester City, who are currently occupying the top two spots.

The same hasn’t been the case with Sheffield United’s next opponent. The Hammers are very low in the table, which was the reason why the club sacked their previous manager Manuel Pellegrini and appointed David Moyes. In his first match at the West Ham helm, he was more than successful. West Ham thrashed Bournemouth by 4:0.

Even though their confidence is very high after the victory, the Hammers are now facing a much tougher challenge. It’s not just that Sheffield United are in a much better form than Bournemouth; it’s also because this game is played at the Bramall Lane.

Sheffield aren’t the very best home side in the league, but the problem is that West Ham aren’t too great when playing away from London. Still, they definitely look capable of snatching at least a point in this match. It’s not going to be easy to score against the Blades, but they have no other option but to try. A win on Friday evening could potentially get them to the 11th place, which is more than enough of motivation for Moyes’ team.
