Fulham vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

Fulham vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.

There will be fireworks when Fulham and Sheffield United face each other at Craven Cottage in the relegation six-pointer on Saturday evening. 

The Cottagers picked up vital three points from the Goodison Park clash, with the team shocking Everton on Matchday 24, but the capital club need to keep on impressing in the remainder of the season if they are to secure the Premier League survival.

Midfielder Tom Cairney should be the only absentee in the home team. 

The Blades, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to West Ham, and seeing that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to London, home win should be considered. 

Fleck should be fit to face the Cottagers, while Berge, O’Connell, Robinson, and Egan remain sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.

Team News:

Fulham will again be without the services of Tom Cairney this weekend through injury, while Aleksandar Mitrovic is unavailable for selection, having recently tested positive for coronavirus.

Parker is expected to stick with the same side that started against Burnley on Wednesday evening, meaning that Maja should again lead the line with support from Ademola Lookman and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the wide areas.

Ivan Cavaleiro and Andre-Frank Anguissa are options for change in a midfield position, but Parker is likely to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack for what is another key clash for the Cottagers.

As for Sheffield United, Sander Berge, Jack Robinson, John Egan and Jack O'Connell are all out, while John Fleck is expected to miss out once again through illness.

Egan's absence could see Phil Jagielka earn a spot in the XI, while George Baldock is likely to be handed a starting role, having been on the bench against West Ham last time out.

Rhian Brewster and Oli McBurnie are both options for change in the final third of the field, but Wilder could ultimately decide to stick with Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick as a front two.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Reed; Loftus-Cheek, Reid, Lookman; Maja

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Basham, Jagielka, Ampadu; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Osborn, Stevens; Sharp, McGoldrick
