Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace – Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 35 encounter, with Sheffield United taking on Crystal Palace on Saturday the 8th of May, 2021, at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United visited Tottenham last weekend, went 1-0 down in the 36th minute, stayed – sort of – in the game until the 61st, but when Gareth Bale scored his second goal in the match, it was rather obvious that the winner was already decided. Sheffield United collapsed after that second Tottenham goal and ended up losing 4-0. Their current form reads; LWLLL. They are on 17 points from 34 matches, at the very bottom of the table, knowing already that next season they will be competing in the Championship. They have 5W, 2D and 27L, having scored no more than 18 goals (by far the worst tally among all 20 Premier League teams this season) and conceded 60 (West Brom have done even worse than them defensively). Coach Paul Heckingbottom played a 3-4-1-2 formation against Tottenham last weekend, with McGoldrick and Brewster up front and Osborn right behind them. As hosts, United beat Brighton(!) 1-0 in their most recent game, with McGoldrick scoring the only goal of the match in the 19th minute.

Crystal Palace hosted Manchester City last weekend, knowing that their mission against the almost certain Premier League champions was close to impossible. The game stayed at 0-0 until the 57th minute, but by the 59th City were 0-1 up, scoring twice in a matter of two minutes. That was the final score as well. Palace’s current form reads; LLLDW. They are on 38 points from 33 matches (they have one in hand), sitting 13th in the table. They have 10W, 8D and 15L, having lost three games in a row now. Goals, 34 scored, 56 conceded. Coach Roy Hodgson played a 4-3-3 formation against Manchester City last weekend, with Benteke, Zaha and Townsend up front. As guests, Palace lost 2-1 to Leicester in their most recent game. Going further back, one sees that they have won just one of their last five matches as visitors, a 1-2 over Brighton, two and a half months ago.

In the reverse fixture back in January, Crystal Palace won 2-0 as hosts.

A 0-1 victory for the visitors is predicted at full-time.

Date: Saturday, 8th of May, 2021.

Venue: Bramall Lane

Kick-off time: 16:00 (GMT+2).
