Leeds United v Sheffield United Match Preview & Trends

Can the Blades sharpen up at Elland Road?

A highly-anticipated Yorkshire derby awaits us on Saturday afternoon as Leeds look to do the double over Sheffield United this season when they host the bottom-placed club in traditional 3pm kick-off. Back in September, Marcelo Bielsa’s men recorded a single goal victory at Bramall Lane and even without the fans present, the result of this return fixture will mean a lot to the supporters of both clubs. 

Paul Heckingbotham will no doubt have appreciated the preparation time afforded him by the international break. After being thrust into the Sheffield United hot seat following Chris Wilders’s mutually agreed departure earlier this month, he now faces an uphill battle to improve results and avoid the drop. Leeds meanwhile, will be keen to end their first season back in the top flight strong and continue the progress made this year.

If Leeds Utd win, they would increase their lead over Sheffield Utd to 28 points in the league table, and it would be Sheffield Utd’s 5th consecutive away defeat. Leeds have only won one of their last 5 home games against the Blades and have picked up an average of 1.29 Points Per Game in their 14 matches played at Elland Road this season. Keep an eye out for derby day discipline as there has been at least one red card in the last 3 meetings between the two Yorkshire rivals.

Sheff Utd have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games with 71% of their points have been earned at home. The Blades have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 22 away games and have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 5 fixtures away from Bramall Lane.

Key trends

Sheffield United’s average Points Per Game in their 14 away games is 0.29.

64% of Leeds Utd’s conceded goals occurred in the first half.

Sheffield Utd conceded at least 1 goal in 100% of their away matches.
