Sheffield United vs. West Ham: High-flying hosts ‘favourites to halt the Hammers’



Sheffield United host West Ham in the first Friday night Premier League match since early November (20:00 GMT).

Chris Wilder’s side will be looking to get their Sheffield show back on the road after consecutive 2-0 defeats at Manchester City and Liverpool has seen them drop to eighth in the table.

West Ham, meanwhile, recorded by far their most impressive win of the season when beating Bournemouth 4-0 in David Moyes’ first game back in charge in his second spell as manager.

However, the Hammers remain firmly locked in a relegation battle and every point until the end of the season could prove crucial in ensuring they do not return to the Championship for the first time since 2012.

The bookmakers don’t expect them to have any joy at Bramall Lane, though, with the hosts the favourites to halt the Hammers at 17/20.

The draw is 13/5, with a West Ham win 3/1.

The Hammers’ away form hasn’t actually been too bad of late, recording 1-0 wins at Chelsea and Southampton in their last four trips.

Sheffield United’s only win at home in their last four, meanwhile, was against fellow promoted side Aston Villa.

There may well be value on the draw here, then, with both sides likely content to avoid defeat. Five of Sheffield United’s matches this season have ended 1-1, including the two sides’ previous meeting at the London Stadium in October, and 13/2 looks a good price for the same outcome on the correct score market.

In terms of goalscorers, 13/2 on Felipe Anderson to score anytime looks an outrageous price with the winger looking back to his best against Bournemouth.

Incredibly, he scored his first goal of the season in that match after a fine solo run, but his tally of nine in the Premier League last season was more reflective of his outstanding ability.

Striker Sebastien Haller, who also scored against Bournemouth to take his tally to six for the season, is also well-priced at 14/5.

For Sheffield United, goalscorers are always harder to call in what is a well-balanced unit with everyone able to chip in. Lyss Mousset is their biggest threat in behind and top goalscorer with five, but is a skinny-looking price to score anytime at 21/20.
