Sheffield United vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield United vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).

Sheffield United will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Man City when they host West Bromwich Albion at their Bramall Lane on Matchday 22. 


The Blades did well to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in their penultimate league fixture, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Tuesday’s relegation six-pointer. 

The likes of Berge, O’Connell, Osborn, and Robinson are all out of contention with injuries for the hosts, while Stevens is rated doubtful.

The Baggies, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding nine goals in total in the previous three league fixtures. 

WBA were anything but impressive in a 2-2 draw with Fulham, and given the importance of the midweek clash for the Blades, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.

Team News:

Sheffield United pair Enda Stevens and Jack Robinson are both expected to miss out through injury, although Ben Osborn could return to the matchday squad.

Wilder has used three different players at left wing-back in the last five games but in Stevens's absence, Jayden Bogle – who started the match against Man City – could get the nod once again ahead of Osborn, Kean Bryan and Max Lowe.

Striker Rhian Brewster, who has yet to score a Premier League goal for the Blades in 17 appearances, could be replaced in the starting lineup by top goalscorer David McGoldrick.

As for the visitors, Grady Diangana is West Brom's only injury concern for the trip to Bramall Lane as the winger is suffering with a hamstring problem.

Allardyce began with a three-man defence against Fulham but then changed to a 4-4-1-1 formation after just 25 minutes - a setup that he may decide to start with on Tuesday.

New signing Mbaye Diagne could be handed his first start up front for the Baggies at the expense of Callum Robinson.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, Ampadu; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Bogle; Burke, McGoldrick

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Gibbs; Phillips, Gallagher, Livermore, Snodgrass; Pereira; Diagne
