West Ham United v Sheffield United Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Still looking to add to their measly single point, Premier League strugglers Sheffield United make the journey to the London Stadium this weekend where they will lock horns with a West Ham outfit sitting in seventh position in the table.

West Ham United managed to overcome League One side Lincoln City to the tune of 1-0 in the third round of the League Cup earlier this week although the Imps made life difficult for their Premier League opponents. It took 70 minutes for the Hammers to finally make their breakthrough with Tomas Soucek bundling home from a corner and securing a place in the fourth round of the competition for the Europa Conference League champions.

West Ham got things off to a bright start in the Premier League but having taken nine points from their opening four league outings, David Moyes’ men have suffered back-to-back losses. In fairness, the East London outfit weren’t expected to get the better of Manchester City and Liverpool, therefore there’s no real cause for concern ahead of this clash with bottom side Sheffield United. The Hammers are currently seventh in the league table – above the likes of Manchester United and Newcastle United – and they are still very much in touch with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as things stand, four points separating them from the North London duo.

Sheffield United have had a full week to dissect last weekend’s annihilation by Newcastle United, eight different Magpies players getting onto the scoresheet in what was an embarrassing 8-0 defeat on home soil. This did wonders for Newcastle’s goal difference and left Sheffield United firmly rooted to the foot of the table with just a solitary point to show from their six-game exertions.

This 8-0 thumping may prove to be a one-off but one can’t help but think that the Blades are going to be seen as cannon fodder by many in the Premier League. An injury-ravaged Blades outfit will surely find the going tough in East London this weekend and while the likelihood of them leaking another eight would seem very slim, the evidence suggests that the visitors will be in for another forgettable afternoon.

 

Back West Ham to win and over 4.5 total goals at best odds of 5/1
