    West Brom to snatch the spoils in six-point affair versus Sheffield United

    West Brom host Sheffield United on Saturday in a massive six-point affair. The Baggies and Blades desperately need a win to kickstart their campaigns.

    Slaven Bilic is tipped to be the next manager sacked in the Premier League. His team have taken just three points from 27 possible. They are yet to win this term and all three points came from three draws.

    Sheffield United have taken just one point from 27. They also have not won a game this campaign. The Blades are on a four-match losing streak. Last season, Chris Wilder’s team played strong defence and got timely goals.

    This season, they are not playing good defence having conceded 15 times in nine games and are not getting timely goals. Sheffield United have only scored four times. They have tallied the joint-fewest goals in the division.

    West Brom have allowed 18 goals to opponents while scoring six goals. They are on a three-game losing streak in the Premier League. A loss to Sheffield United could see Bilic sacked by the club.

    These teams last met during the 2018-19 EFL Championship campaign. The away team won both of those matches. West Brom went away to Bramall Lane and secured a 2-1 win. Sheffield United returned the favour with a 1-0 victory at the Hawthorns.

    Two of West Brom’s three points this season were taken at home. Sheffield United have not taken points on the road, losing all four matches and being outscored 9-3.

    Wilder could finally have forward Lys Mousset back from a long-term injury. He has been out of action with an ankle issue. Enda Stevens could be back as well after recovering from a knee injury. Jack O’Connell is the only player ruled out for Sheffield United.

    Bilic is missing Sam Field due to a knee injury. He won’t be back until December. Both Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs are ruled out due to positive COVID-19 tests.

    With neither side out of form, which team wins on Saturday between West Brom and Sheffield United? West Brom have been slightly better this season. They should gain the win thanks to their home form being slightly better than Sheffield United’s away form.

    Both teams should score and take advantage of their weaknesses. Expect a West Brom victory with over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring. Both teams are staring relegation in the eyes. A win for West Brom should allow them push on to fight for survival.
