Draw 1-1 @ 6/1

Reason For Brighton vs Sheffield United Predictions

  • Sheffield United drew six of their eight away games this season.
  • Both teams scored in 75% of those matches.
  • Goals were scored by both teams in five of Brighton’s last six Premier League matches.
  • The Seagulls lost just one of their last six top-flight matches at home.

Brighton continue to improve

Having flown under the radar for much of the campaign, Brighton are finally starting to get some of the plaudits that Seagulls fans feel they deserve, and a win this weekend would put Albion within two points of a much-lauded Sheffield United team in the Premier League table.

Brighton took a point from their trip to play Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday, though Albion will feel that they deserved more from a contest that they dominated for large periods.

The draw did extend the Seagull’s recent unbeaten streak to three matches – a stretch that included a haul of four points from two games against Arsenal and Wolves.  Back in the familiar surroundings of the Amex Stadium this weekend, Brighton will be confident that they can prolong that positive sequence against Sheffield United.

Sheffield United proving tough to conquer

The Blades remain one of the toughest nuts to crack in the Premier League however, and United were beaten only once in their last 10 top-flight assignments.

Chris Wilder’s men took maximum points from their last two outings against fellow newly promoted clubs Norwich City and Aston Villa, though the Blades have been taking points in singles more often than not in recent weeks.

In total, Sheffield United shared the spoils with their opponents in five of their last 10 Premier League contests, and in six of the eight away games they have navigated since the summer in total. No other team in fact, has drawn more often than the Blades on the road this term.

Sheffield United currently hold the Premier League’s third best defensive record, though the Blades rarely keep clean sheets away from Bramall Lane. United kept their hosts out just twice in eight attempts overall since August, though the attacking thrust they carry allowed them to respond in all but one of those eight games at the other end.

Goals likely at both ends

Both teams scored in 75% of Sheffield United’s eight away games this season – a percentage that Brighton’s games have topped in the Seagulls’ last six matches.

Goals went in at either end in 83% (five) of Albion’s most recent Premier League fixtures, and with boss Graham Potter’s footballing philosophy conducive to open games, we expect goals to be scored at both ends again this weekend.

Our correct score prediction settles on a 1-1 draw however. Sheffield United’s record of six draws from eight on the road and their habit of picking up points in singles away from home doesn’t look like breaking anytime soon, while Brighton’s run of just one loss in six at home highlights their own strengths and knack for collecting points on their own patch.

With Brighton’s improvement this season stark and Sheffield United’s ability to avoid defeat well established, a draw would be seen as an acceptable result for both managers. Three of United’s lats four away matches finished 1-1 and we’re tipping the Blades latest away assignment at Brighton to follow suit.
