Units: 2/5

There’s no denying that Sheffield United have enjoyed a fantastic season to date in the Premier League. The fact that the Blades are not regarded as relegation material is amazing although Chris Wilder won’t be counting any chickens at this point in the season.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The Yorkshire outfit sit eighth in the table after racking up 29 points although the plain fact is that they have only won four of their ten matches at Bramall Lane this term, so it’s interesting that the bookies are going odds-on about United.

Their short price is partly down to the fact that West Ham are sitting in a lowly sixteenth place, although David Moyes has recently taken charge and the Scot oversaw a recent 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth before the Hammers triumphed 2-0 at the Priestfield Stadium in the FA Cup.

The London side have avoided defeat in 60% of their away games this season and a draw from this clash would continue their quest to avoid relegation this season, with Moyes fielding a strong line-up for the recent win over Gillingham.

The Scot will be delighted with back-to-back clean sheets and the return of Lukasz Fabianski between the sticks is a massive boost to the defence, while Pablo Fornals has now scored in two of his previous three games and is starting to show why the club paid £24 million for his services.

Indeed, on paper, you could argue that West Ham are the stronger team despite the fact that the Blades have played some enterprising football, with Wilder cultivating a fantastic team spirit using wing-backs to good effect.

The main problem for United has been a lack of firepower and we’re comfortable backing West Ham on the Asian Handicap with half a goal start in this one.
