Sheffield United form and stats

Sheffield United's struggle is real here at Bramall Lane with only 7 points collected from 12 Premier League games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-1-9. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Sheffield to get some points in this home game.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 216 minutes without scoring a league goal. A. Rudiger (own goal) was the last player to find the net.

In their previous game, the manager C. Wilder led his Sheffield to a defeat in the Premier League match away at Fulham. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Bramall Lane. Prior to that, an away loss at West Ham United.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Premier League game versus Aston Villa in only three days. This game is also played here at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield have scored 9 league goals here from 12 matches, not a lot. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Sheffield defense is not exactly impregnable. 18 goals conceded from 12 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

A quick return to home after this game, as Liverpool are hosting Chelsea in the Premier League only four days away.

Liverpool are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 23 times in 12 away games so far. In the opposite end, Liverpool have conceded 18 goals in their away games.
