Sheffield United – West Brom is a massive relegation six-pointer on Tuesday (start time 1pm ET on Peacock Premium) as the Blades and Baggies are in the relegation zone and are in real danger of being cut adrift from the rest of the Premier League.
Sheffield United continue to plug away and after their shock win at Manchester United last week they narrowly lost at Manchester City this weekend. West Brom drew at home with Fulham, as Sam Allardyce’s side continue to leak plenty of goals but the Baggies did make some key additions in the January window to boost their survival hopes.
Heading into this game, Sheffield United are on eight points for the season and are 13 points from safety. West Brom sit one place and four points above them in the table. A win is huge for either team in their hopes of staying up. Both have to go all-out for the win.
