Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Preview
The Peacocks have shown signs that they really could be the dark horses this season at PL. In fact, their arrival at the top flight was expected from the middle of the 2019-20 season itself, and they got off to a good start.
Led by the legendary Marcelo Bielsa, the team faced Liverpool in the opener at Anfield and almost escaped with the victory.
Still, they scored three goals against one of the best defenders in world football, and without an 88 penalty from Mohammed Salah, the Reds could have become the laughingstock of the competition.
The Peacocks scored goals for fun and the fluid style of play was very difficult for the coaches to understand. His defense is the only area that could currently be considered a weak point.
And that’s exactly what the Blades would count on. They have the experience of playing in the top flight for one more season and they hope to counter Bielsa’s men with that.
You probably expect a good performance from Leeds, but not a clean sheet.
Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Head to Head (H2H)
- Chris Wilder’s men had won four of the five previous matches.
- They had also recorded seven of the previous nine overall victories.
- Since 1992, the Peacocks have only won once at this stadium.
- The last meeting between the two ended with a 0-1 victory for the Blades.
Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Prediction
Wilder’s men lost 1-0 on the road on the final day of the game, against Aston Villa. Meanwhile, Bielsa’s men managed a 4-3 home win over Fulham.
He has scored a total of seven goals so far in the PL, which is the most in the league, and has had graceful performances in both games. And one of those games was at Anfield against defending champion Liverpool.
The Blades, meanwhile, have lost their first two games and are at the bottom of the table. His last game was against Aston Villa, who was a relegation fighter last season and still couldn’t put up a good showing.
Probably expect Leeds to be the best team on the pitch this weekend.
However, Bielsa’s men are still new to this competition, and they are also the top scorer so far in England’s top flight. On top of that, they are on the way, and Wilder’s men will allow themselves to win their first three matchups for free without a fight.
For the reasons, expect goals from both teams this Sunday.
