Crystal Palace – Sheffield United will likely be a tight, tense clash on Saturday (start time 10am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) as two teams woefully out of form meet at Selhurst Park.
STREAM LIVE CRYSTAL PALACE – SHEFFIELD UNITED
Palace have one win in their last eight outings, as Roy Hodgson’s side were reeling after their 7-0 home defeat to Liverpool and coughed up a late equalizer at home against Leicester City last time out.
Sheffield United have lost 14 of their 16 games so far this season and have equalled the longest-ever run from the start of a Premier League season without a win. Chris Wilder’s side haven’t been playing bad at all, but they’ve come out on the wrong end of several one-goal games and they’ve got just two points on the board.
Here’s everything you need to know before the Eagles and Blades square off.

Sheffield United are without Sander Berge who is out long-term, and so too is Jack O’Connell who has been out since September for the Blades.
Here's how the Blades line-up. 👊

Both teams are severely lacking in confidence, but I think Palace just have enough to get over the line. Wilfried Zaha usually comes up with the goods to win these games, and I expect him to do it again. Crystal Palace 2-1 Sheffield United.
