Sheffield United v Brighton and Hove Albion Match Preview & Trends

Blades Look to Change Abysmal Home Record

Having had their relegation confirmed after defeat in their last outing, Paul Heckingbotham’s side faces a strange last few matches in the Premier League with nothing to play for but pride. Brighton are not safe yet and if there is any lack of motivation in the Sheffield United side then they will look to exploit it as they bid for safety themselves. Grahame Potter will be pinning his hopes on a vital 3 points as the Seagulls make the trip up to Yorkshire on Saturday evening.

Sheffield Utd have lost their last 5 matches and have conceded at least 1 goal in 88% of their home matches. The Blades have failed to score in 50% of their games at Bramall Lane. 71% of Sheffield Utd’s points have been earned at home but they have conceded the opening goal in 78% of their matches. The Blades have lost 81% of their matches and have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 6 games. They have also lost those 6 fixtures and have won just one of their last 5 Premier League home games.

Brighton have won just one of their last 5 Premier League away games and need to address this soon if they are to avoid the drop and suffer the same fate as their next opponents. If Brighton win, they would increase their lead over Sheffield Utd to 23 points in the league table, and it would be The Blades’ 6th consecutive defeat.

Key trends

Sheffield United have picked up an average of 0.63 Points Per Game in their 16 matches played at home
