Sheffield United – West Ham will see the unexpectedly bottom-of-the-table Blades look to finally kickstart their 2020-21 Premier League campaign when the Hammers visit Bramall Lane on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, online via Peacock Premium).
Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United side has endured a truly horrendous start to the season, in which they managed to win just one point from their first eight games as they quickly sank to 20th place, though only three points away from safety in 17th.
West Ham, meanwhile, are perhaps exceeding expectations ever so slightly having already played four of the “big-six” sides. David Moyes’ men took a point each from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, and were only beaten 2-1 by each of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Sheffield United are third-worst in the Premier League in terms of expected goals for (0.73 xG) and against (1.58 xGA), indicating serious problems at both ends of the field. Don’t back the Blades to turn things around until they put together two or three halfway solid performances in a row. Until then, status quo. Sheffield United 1-3 West Ham.
