Reason For Sheffield United vs Leeds Predictions

  • Leeds’ Premier League matches have averaged 7.0 goals per 90 minutes so far this season.
  • Sheffield United lost just four of their last 16 Premier League home games.
  • Leeds are conceding more shots on average per game (18) than any other club in the division.
  • Sheffield United kept just three clean sheets in their last nine league home assignments.

Blades searching for cutting edge

Sheffield United’s poor start to the 2020/21 campaign has sparked fears that second season syndrome could be about to take hold, and after successive defeats to nil in the Premier League and an early Carabao Cup exit, the Blades are desperately in need of a pick me up.

United can draw some positives from a lengthy period of good form at Bramall Lane however, and their opening day defeat there to Wolves was only their fourth loss in 16 matches on their own patch since October last year.

Leeds continue to thrill

All the early indicators suggest that newly promoted Leeds will be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the Premier League this season.

Following their white-knuckle 4-3 opening weekend loss to Liverpool at Anfield on September 12, Leeds picked up their first win of the new campaign against fellow former Championship outfit Fulham at Elland Road, ousting the Cottagers by the same scoreline as their defeat on Merseyside.

Marcelo Bielsa’s unique tactical blueprint has allowed Leeds to create plenty of openings, though their defending has so far, been dangerously lacklustre.

Exciting game anticipated at Bramall Lane

While Leeds’ easy on the eye passing patterns have brought them plenty of success in the final third, Bielsa’s side have looked worryingly porous at the back, and we think a combination of those aspects should result in a third high-scoring Premier League encounter on the spin involving the Yorkshiremen at the weekend.

Leeds’ Premier League tussles have averaged an incredible 7.0 goals per 90 minutes so far, and the Whites have conceded more shots on average per game (18.0) than any other side in the division.

That figure suggests Sheffield United should have plenty of opportunities to break their duck for the season on Sunday, though the Blades, who failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their three competitive matches this term, should struggle to contain their visitor’s impressive free-flowing attacking surges.

Contests involving Leeds have been a thrill a minute so far this season, and with the aforementioned factors aligned, the over 2.5 goals market looks excellent value at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction tips the teams to share the spoils in a 2-2 draw.

Sheffield United’s home record since October last year (four defeats in 16) is strong, and Leeds conceded enough chances against Fulham in their last assignment to suggest a stronger Blades United can take something from the game at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United injuries and team news

John Egan is suspended after his red card against Aston Villa on Monday, and that could allow Ethan Ampadu to make his full league debut in the Irishman’s absence.

With Lys Mousset still injured, Oli Burke and Oli McBurnie will complete for a spot up front alongside David McGoldrick.

Leeds injuries and team news

Leeds have close to a clean bill of health for Sunday’s game, with their only doubt, Pablo Hernandez, expected to shake off a groin injury in time to feature.

Record signing Rodrigo Moreno will hope to keep his place in the XI having made his full league debut last weekend against Fulham.
