      Tip Reasoning

      • Sheffield United have won five of their 12 home Premier League games without conceding.
      • Bournemouth have lost six of their last seven away games in the Premier League.
      • Three of Sheffield United’s home wins have been by 1-0 scorelines.

      Blades continue to impress in the top flight

      Another hard fought win over Crystal Palace last weekend saw Sheffield United, the pre-season favourites for relegation, move ahead of Manchester United in the Premier League standings. Remarkably, the plucky underdogs are just five points adrift of the top four and would move into 5th position with a win on Sunday.

      This is all thanks to Chris Wilder’s excellent tactical knowledge and the hard work and commitment of the players, and the results speak for themselves. They have lost just seven of their 25 Premier League games and currently hold the 2nd best defensive record in the top flight.

      The Blades’ lofty standing isn’t down to some flash-in-the-pan run of form either. They have won five, drawn two and lost three of their last 10 games, and are easily matching their competitors when it comes to overall consistency this season.

      Bournemouth still in trouble despite recent successes

      Travelling Bournemouth fans will be rightly concerned about their chances this weekend, despite their two recent victories over Brighton and Aston Villa. The Cherries may have turned a corner, but they still find themselves just two points above the relegation zone and their overall form is a real worry.

      In fact, they have lost 10 of their last 14 Premier League matches, and their travelling form is yet to improve. Six of their last seven Premier League away days have ended in defeat, with them failing to score in each of their last three trips away.

      Defensive stability points towards win for the hosts

      This lack of goalscoring form will play into Sheffield United’s hands nicely. The hosts have won four of their seven home games against teams in the bottom half of the table, and each of those victories was topped with a clean sheet. Meanwhile, Bournemouth have failed to find the net in six of their last nine league away games, making a Sheffield United Win to Nil bet look very generous indeed.

      Three of the Blades’ aforementioned victories have been by 1-0 scorelines as well, and with them averaging 1.08 goals per home game this season we think backing a 1-0 correct score prediction is a great choice.
