West Ham – Sheffield United: Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United look to continue their rebound from a historically-bad start to the season when they visit suddenly-uneven West Ham United on Monday (start time 1pm ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Blades have handled a brutal run of scheduling fairly well after getting their first win of the season on Jan. 12 versus Newcastle, falling to Spurs, Man City, and Chelsea but mixing in defeats of Manchester United and West Brom.
David Moyes’ West Ham, however, has dropped points in two of three after a six-match unbeaten run to start 2021.

The Blades may well be able to keep the Hammers off the board but can it get enough goals to collect another win? Chelsea has only scored more than two goals once this season, and it came in the FA Cup against lower league opposition. West Ham 2-1 Sheffield United.
