Sheffield United will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 2-1 Premier League loss in their previous game against Arsenal.

Sheffield United have been quite ineffective in attack in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 3 against opponents during their previous six outings. In those meetings, The Blades have also seen the number of goals against them come to 10.
Looking at their past form shows that Sheffield United:
- have not emerged victorious against Fulham in their last 2 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 matches in the league.
Since a loss in their previous game against Wolverhampton Wanderers in Premier League action, Fulham and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Fulham had 53% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 on target. At the other end, Wolverhampton Wanderers had 14 shots at goal with 5 on target. Pedro Neto (56') was the scorer for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
A tendency of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Fulham has been apparent of late. Checking on their last 6 games reveals that this has happened 5 times. During these clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal tally of 11 and The Cottagers have scored 6. Despite that, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend will continue on in this upcoming match.
Coming into this contest, Fulham are without a win away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.
Head to head
A glance at their prior head-to-head clashes going back to 30/01/2007 shows us that Sheffield United have won 2 of them & Fulham 3, with the tally of drawn games being 1.
20 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 8 of them from The Blades and 12 coming from The Cottagers. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.33.
Team News: Sheffield United
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Fulham
Fulham manager Scott Parker has to choose a team with limited availability. Jay Stansfield (Ankle Surgery), Harrison Reed (Knock), Kenny Tete (Calf Injury) and Joachim Andersen (Ruptured ankle ligament) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We feel that Fulham may not find it easy to hit the back of the net against this Sheffield United team who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore tipping a highly competitive game with a 1-0 victory for Sheffield United at full-time.
