Sheffield United vs Sunderland Prediction

 by Indran |

Sheffield United welcomes Sunderland to Bramall Lane for this fourth round encounter in the Championship. The home team will be disappointed with their 2-2 draw away to Middlesbrough especially as they led twice only to settle for the share of the points. Sheffield United have won their only other home match and will be looking to maintain their perfect home record with another win. They have experienced a mixed bag of results recently as they have only won one of their last five matches. Sheffield United have only four points after three matches but they will be glad that traditionally tough games against Watford and Middlesbrough are out of the way so early in the season. Sheffield United have only won two of the last eight matches across all competitions. Their home record though is very impressive as they have only lost two of their last 17 matches.

Sunderland came through the League One promotional qualifiers to gain promotion into this year’s Championship. They have made an excellent start for a promoted team as they are unbeaten in their opening three matches with two draws and a win. The visitors sit in a very respectable sixth position on the table, with a victory in this match taking them to within one point of the leaders. Sunderland had an extended pre-season playing seven matches, winning three and losing three with one draw. They have struggled in their away matches with just two wins in their last eight matches on the road.

Our prediction

Sheffield United have won three of their last four league matches against Sunderland but the home team will be looking for revenge as they were beaten by the visitors in the most recent meeting which was in a 2019 League Cup match. Sheffield United have proven very difficult to beat at home as they have been miserly in defence while Sunderland have struggled defensively especially on their travels. We are backing Sheffield United to inflict their first defeat on Sunderland in this match.
