Sheffield United vs Watford: Sheffield United has only proven success in its last three games of PL. With Watford marked as the worst side of the group, expect the hosts to be too hot to handle this Thursday as well.
Sheffield United beat Brighton on the road last week after Oliver McBurnie scored the only goal of the game. The hosts are now on a brilliant winning streak of three games in the Premier League and have admitted defeat only once in their last five games.
With twenty-eight points in the bag, the home team is fifth in the standings, sixteen points ahead of their weekend counterparts.
On the other hand, Watford got what was only his second victory of the season in his last game with Manchester United at home. The visitors were much better in the last game and scored two goals without response against their enemies at the end of the ninety minutes.
Unfortunately, Watford is still trapped at the bottom of the stairs. They have tripped three times in their last five PL matches and have only accumulated four out of fifteen possible points.
To accumulate even more misery, the guests have been losers in each of their last three outings. And, I’ve tried success on the road only once this season.
The Blades seemed much more convincing in their respective clashes at home. Given the current form of Watford, Sheffield United is the first to reach the top in this.
In addition, disappointingly, the visiting contingent lost so much comfort in each of their two previous away games. So far, they have only found the bottom of the network five times during their outings.
Meanwhile, Sheffield was hard to break in the defensive third, especially at home. They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five games here.
In addition, six of the previous nine meetings at Bramall Lane this season have scored less than 2.5 goals in the ranking. Therefore, hope that the goals are difficult to achieve this week.
