Sheffield United vs Brighton

With only two points separating Sheffield United and the top four, Chris Wilder’s men will be hoping to pile more pressure on their rivals with a win over Brighton this weekend.

Following a run of three straight wins in all competitions, Sheffield will be looking to maintain this run when they welcome Brighton to Bramall Lane.

Wins over Millwall, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth not only helped United to improve their position in the league but also to progress in the FA Cup.

This weekend, they take on a Brighton side which is struggling for victories. Graham Potter’s men have picked up two wins from 16 games across all competitions; a run which sees them only three points above the drop zone.

The bookmarkers have made Sheffield the clear favourites at 10/11 – Brighton, on the other hand, are priced at 3/1.

It’s well documented that Sheffield don’t score many goals; in fact, 18th placed West Ham have scored more! Nevertheless, Wilder’s men do tend to win a majority of their games by the one goal margin. This to happen again is priced at 13/5 which clearly offers more value than the outright price.

Recommendation

Sheffield United to win by a margin of one goal – 13/5 PaddyPower*

Sheffield United at full strength ahead of clash with Brighton

Sheffield United have returned from their winter break in Dubai with a fully fit squad heading into their home game against Brighton.

David McGoldrick was an unused substitute in the win against Bournemouth on February 9 after a foot injury but the striker has now fully recovered from the problem.

January signings Richairo Zivkovic and Panos Retsos played in a behind-closed-doors friendly this week and will hope to be involved on Saturday.

Brighton manager Graham Potter will assess a number of players ahead of the trip to Bramall Lane.

Dale Stephens, Tariq Lamptey and Alexis Mac Allister will all be looked at before Potter makes a final decision on his matchday squad, although Stephens is expected to miss out.

Potter will be without Jose Izquierdo, although the winger returned to grass-based training during the winter break.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Eastwood, Moore, Egan, Basham, O’Connell, Robinson, Jagielka, Retsos, Stevens, Fleck, Besic, Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Rodwell, Freeman, Berge, Mousset, Sharp, McBurnie, McGoldrick, Zivkovic.

Brighton provisional squad: Ryan, Schelotto, Duffy, Dunk, Burn, Propper, Mooy, March, Gross, Trossard, Murray, Lamptey, Webster, Jahanbakhsh, Button, Bernardo, Connolly, Alzate.

    Sheffield United 1-1 Brighton - Match Highlights

    Date published: 2/22/2020 10:37:02 PM

    Sheffield United had the better of the game but were forced to settle for a point from a 1-1 draw at home to a battling Brighton side.

    The hosts stuck with the same starting XI who began the 2-1 win at home to Bournemouth just before the winter break, while Albion made three alterations to the team who drew 1-1 with Watford.

    Leandro Trossard, Pascal Gross and Solly March were the players to make way, with Neal Maupay, Yves Bissouma and Adam Webster all handed starts.

    The Blades made a fast start, pinning their opponents back for much of the opening few minutes of the game, with Oli McBurnie just unable to make contact with a George Baldock pass when he was well placed.

    The first shot on target came 19 minutes in as Bissouma shot tamely at the waiting Dean Henderson in the home goal and seven minutes later the hosts broke the deadlock through Enda Stevens.

    A deep cross from the right eventually dropped to the left-back and he flashed a fierce left-foot shot just inside the near post of Seagulls keeper Mat Ryan.

    However, the lead lasted a mere four minutes before Albion drew level, with Neal Maupay swooping to nod home after a free-kick into the area had been headed on by Lewis Dunk.

    Early in the second half, Dunk flashed a shot over the crossbar after another ball into the area caused problems for the home defence.

    The hosts regained the upper hand as the hour mark approached, with John Fleck flashing a shot a yard wide from 25 yards out, before Ezequiel Schelotto saw claims for a penalty waved away as his cross struck the arm of Ben Osborn.

    As the game entered the final 10 minutes McBurnie miskicked as he met a ball in from the left flank and the striker then saw his close-range flick kept out by the alert Ryan.

    However, despite their late charge, the Blades had to settle for a point which probably suited the visitors rather better.
