West Ham – Sheff Utd Match Prediction | 27-10-2019 10:00

A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko, who has been in a fine form in the first half of the season. West Ham United will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Everton when they host Sheffield United at their London Stadium on Matchday 10. The Hammers continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are definitely capable of beating the newcomers on home soil.

He must of been shocked to have been left out of the last game as Arthur Masaku was favoured. There is increasing hope, if not yet genuine belief, that they may be able to finish in a top seven position with so many top teams struggling. Defender Aaron Cresswell has also discovered some scoring form with two in four, including the equaliser in the draw against Bournemouth. Andriy Yarmalenko is growing into the Payet role quite nicely with three goals in four matches, a reminder of his talents after an injury-hit debut year in England. West Ham sit 11th in the table following a six-game unbeaten run which was ended in their last two games versus Crystal Palace and Everton. The Hammers have finished between 13th and 10th in six of the last seven seasons but seem better equipped than ever to break out from mid-table mediocrity, and match if not improve on their seventh-place finish from the Dimitri Payet-inspired 2015-16 campaign. After leaking five on the opening day of the season against Manchester City, Manuel Pellegrini's side have tightened things up at the London Stadium, keeping successive clean sheets in wins over Norwich City and Manchester United. The double midfield pivot of Declan Rice and Mark Noble is starting to become a formidable first line of an improving defence, albeit one which will have to contend without influential goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for a couple of months due to a hip injury.

Theyll see this season as an opportunity to prove that they have nothing to lose, and up to this point, theyve done a solid job of doing just that. Chris Wilder has worked wonders with Sheffield United ever since joining the club, and thats especially true of their return to the top flight of English football. They arent just picking up the results they need, though, because theyre also putting in genuinely good performances and playing some attractive football.

However, Oli McBurnie has been in the news for all wrong reasons following his arrest for drink driving during the early hours of Friday morning. The Blades, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late. The Blades come into this game following an impressive 1-0 home victory against Arsenal and they have received massive plaudits for the way they have fought this season in the top division. In their last meeting in the English capital West Ham defeated Sheffield Utd 1-0. The Hammers continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are definitely capable of beating the newcomers on home soil. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko, who has been in a fine form in the first half of the season.

If we look ahead to the immediate future, however, there are plenty of other games littered throughout the weekend that should be quite a lot of fun. The Premier League is back in our lives once again, starting with Friday Night Football later tonight. One such example is West Ham United vs Sheffield United, which is a fixture that hasnt been played all that often over the course of the last decade or so. Despite that, the overwhelming tension from the Carlos Tevez debacle is still painfully evident to see.

The Blades have 23 wins, 14 draws, and 18 losses thus far against their rivals from a distance away. Remember, it was West Ham that infamously relegated them over a decade ago, though, so that still stings fans of the Blades the world over. In 55 total meetings, West Ham trail behind Sheffield United. The only recent meeting came back in the 2014 EFL Cup when the Blades downed the Hammers on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

They have used their style to pressure the opponent and have kept a calm, organized head at the back, leading them to do extremely well. Expert Verdict: The perception of Sheffield United, to many, would be that they would be a weak side and easy to score against. On the contrary, though, they have been anything but that. Their is no reason to think they won't have a similar showing in London, which means they can take advantage and possibly grab themselves a valuable point.

West Ham United will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Everton when they host Sheffield United at their London Stadium on Matchday 10. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko, who has been in a fine form in the first half of the season. The Hammers continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are definitely capable of beating the newcomers on home soil.

In their last meeting in the English capital West Ham defeated Sheffield Utd 1-0. The Blades, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late and seeing that West Ham are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the Bramall Lane outfit will return home empty-handed from the trip to London.

West Ham have had an up and down time of it in general this season, but the same can be said for their home record as well. They currently have two wins and two losses to show for themselves, putting them on six points from a possible 12. Thats very encouraging for a team looking to stave off what many expected would be a routine relegation. As for the Blades, they have done very well on the road so far. In fact, they are unbeaten having picked up six points via three draws and a win. They lost to City and Palace while beating United and Norwich, so your guess is as good as mine on them.

In goal, Dean Henderson is well worth the watch. There are a plethora of local heroes and players that came from the Championship in this Blades side, but it looks like the latest to join the ranks of the heroes is now Lys Mousset. The former Bournemouth man struck his second goal, for the club lead, in the win over Arsenal, gifting them a famous three points in the process. He may have made a big mistake against Liverpool a few weeks back, but this is a very talented goalkeeper that has been an integral part of keeping clean sheets with such regularity.

The Frenchman has four goals and an assist so far, and theyll be hoping he can add to those tallies here. The Ukrainian has come back from injury woes and has three goals already this term. When they have been at their best this season, its been when Sebastien Haller has been at close to his best form. It might be a shame, but its just how it is for the Hammers to have ebbs and flows. In midfield, Andriy Yarmolenko is one to watch, whether hes coming off the bench or starting.

Ahead of this fixture, they are in ninth place on 12 points, having lost just once in their last four and grabbing seven points in that stretch. Every point is huge at this stage, and they will know that very well. Sheffield United, like West Ham, wont be seriously challenging for European places, but they will be starting to dream of a fairly comfortable season nonetheless. They were a Dean Henderson howler away from another point, against Liverpool, too, so that has to buoy them greatly.
