Sheffield United vs Southampton Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield United and Southampton go head to head at Bramall Lane in what is expected to be an exciting Premier League game. 

The Blades desperately needed a win against Aston Villa, and they managed to get one thanks to David McGoldrick’s goal. 

Sheffield United are 12 points behind the safe zone, meaning that this has go to down as a must-win game for the hosts.

The Saints, on the other hand, have been slipping down the standings week by week, with the team losing eight of their previous nine games. 

Southampton are eager to give fans something to cheer about, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Chris Wilder’s troops. 

In the first half of the season Southampton crushed Sheffield United 3-0, meaning that the relegation-threatened hosts are hungry for revenge.

Team News:

Jagielka will play no part in this one after his red card against Villa, while Wilder is also without fellow centre-backs Jack O'Connell, Chris Basham and John Egan due to injuries, and Jack Robinson is also struggling with a foot problem.

As a result, Max Lowe could deputise alongside Ethan Ampadu and Kean Bryan in Wilder's back three, unless the hosting manager switches it up and goes to a back four amid his centre-back crisis.

Jayden Bogle will not be ready to return for this one, but Wilder had no such worries at the other end of the pitch, with Oli McBurnie hopeful of earning a recall over Rhian Brewster.

Hasenhuttl expressed concern over Moussa Djenepo after the Everton defeat as he was on the receiving end of a crunching tackle, but the winger has a chance of recovering in time for this game.

There is also optimism over Takumi Minamino, Kyle Walker-Peters and Ibrahima Diallo's potential involvement as the trio aim to shake off hamstring problems, but Theo Walcott, Oriol Romeu and Will Smallbone remain out.

Nathan Tella should feature out wide if Hasenhuttl does have to cope without three wingers, and the Southampton boss is yet to decide whether Alex McCarthy or Fraser Forster - who started against Everton - will feature in goal.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Ampadu, Bryan, Lowe; Baldock, Norwood, Fleck, Lundstram, Stevens; McGoldrick, McBurnie

Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Bednarek, Vestergaard, Salisu, Bertrand; Redmond, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Minamino; Ings, Adams
