Sheffield United v Southampton Match Preview & Trends

Having finally overtaken Derby County’s worst ever premier league points haul, Chris Wilder will take little consolation in it if his side go down. The Blades won their last outing and will be hoping to continue the momentum against a spiralling Southampton side. Saints lost again last week and desperately need a result at Bramall Lane to cling onto their Europa League dreams. They will be encouraged by the fact of having the better recent results in this fixture at least but find themselves bottom of the form league. Sheffield Utd have conceded the opening goal in 74% of their matches, losing 71% of all home fixtures. Sheffield United are the Premiership’s lowest scorers but will find hope in Southampton’s tendency to concede late goals. Saints have given away 8 goals in the final 15 minutes of this year’s games. Can their victory over Villa inspire a spirited resistance against relegation or will the Saints once again go marching in?

Key trends

In their last six league matches, Sheffield United have won two and lost four.

Southampton,  have drawn one and lost five in their last six.

Saints haven’t earned a win away since December 2020 against Brighton at the Amex Stadium
