West Ham vs. Sheffield United: Punters backing Hammers to bounce back from Goodison defeat

Published

on

Sheffield United travel to east London on Saturday afternoon as they look to build on what was a fantastic victory over Arsenal on Monday night.

Chris Wilder’s side continue to shock the entire Premier League with their resolute defending. Up next for them is a visit to West Ham. The two clubs go into the encounter level on 12 points, with three league wins, three draws and three losses this season.

The home side are currently 11/10 to return to winning ways after losing out to Everton last weekend.

The away side are 5/2 to pick up another league victory, while a draw is also priced at 5/2.

The Hammers return to London Stadium after a 2-0 away loss to Everton last weekend. They are now without a win in their last four games in all competitions, and have conceded exactly two goals in each of their last three league games.

It’s currently 3/1 for Sheffield United to grab two goals on Saturday.

However, despite a promising start to the campaign, the visitors have certainly had their problems in front of goal. Lys Mousset is their joint top scorer this season with two. And he’s level with own goals scored by the opposition.

Another own goal in this meeting is priced at 7/1.

Their saving grace has been their tenacious defensive performances. Their total of seven league goals conceded is a joint-lowest with leaders Liverpool. And their four clean sheets is a joint-highest with Manchester City.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been crucial to their success at the back. His 25 clean sheets in the league since the start of last season is more than any other keeper in England’s top four tiers.

He is 10/3 to keep another one at West Ham.

For the Hammers, their big-money signing Sebastien Haller has certainly stepped up to the plate in his first season in English football. The striker already has four league goals to his name. He’s 5/1 to open the scoring against Sheffield, and 6/4 to score anytime.

His team-mate Andriy Yarmolenko has also been chipping in with goals. The Ukranian has three for the campaign, and is currently 15/2 to score first and 12/5 to score anytime.

The Blades defended like their lives depended on it against Unai Emery’s side, with the home team more than worth their 1-0 victory.

They will be looking for another solid display at the back against an attacking West Ham outfit.

They may also be boosted by the injury to Hammers number one Lukasz Fabianski. He’s been replaced by summer signing Roberto. The away team may just fancy their chances in front of goal against a goalkeeper with very little experience in English football.

Billy Sharp is 7/1 to score first, along with Callum Robinson. Fellow forward David McGoldrick is currently 15/2 to score the game’s opener. And he’s 12/5 to score anytime throughout the 90 minutes.
