Tip Sheffield United - Southampton
Sheffield United have an impressive record at home; in their last 15 matches at Bramall Lane, they have won 11 and they will feel this is their chance to not only extend that but also take early advantage to rise on the standings after their promotion from the Championship. Sheffield have a loss, two wins and two draws in their last five matches and they have scored in each of their five matches this season – one being a League Cup game. Before this season, Sheffield last played in the Premier League in 2007, and they didn’t have a very encouraging run; they have three wins in their last 15 Premier League matches but the record is better at home, with the team having won three of the last five and five in 10. In their last home game in the Premier League, however, they suffered a loss to Leicester City. In their last 15 competitive matches at home, Sheffield United have managed 11 wins, and 10 clean sheets. Southampton started the season with two straight losses, but they have improved well since and go to this game unbeaten in three matches. They will look at this as a winnable game after their draw with Manchester United in their last match before the international break and will be keen to stretch on with the good run they have had recently. While they have not lost any of their last three matches, Southampton have not had it easy in the Premier League; in the last nine league matches, they have managed one win and they have just one clean sheet in 11 league matches but they have scored in 13 of their last 15 league matches. Southampton’s major struggles in the league in recent times have come away from home; they have picked just four wins in 19 away Premier League matches, all with only four clean sheets and they will be keen on improving on the clean sheet they picked in their last away game, against Brighton. Sheffield are unbeaten in the last three meetings against Southampton
