Under 2.5 goals Sheffield United vs Fulham 8/11 for Sunday’s Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides enduring a woeful start to the New Year, Sheffield United will host Fulham on Sunday lunchtime from behind closed doors.
Starting with the hosts, while Sheffield United might have shocked many across the Premier League last season, it has been a very worrying start to proceedings this time around. In their opening four top-flight contests so far this year, they are yet to record a single point after being hit with four defeats on the bounce, scoring just one and conceding six in return. One of three teams who are yet to get themselves off the mark this season, it should also be noted that Sheffield United hold the worst-attacking record in the division on returning from the international break. With only their goal difference stopping them from falling to the foot of the table, the Blades have lost all five of their competitive contests this season and have been hit with back-to-back 2-0 and 1-0 defeats against Wolves and Leeds on home soil so far. It should also be noted that continuing on from last season, four of their last five Premier League home fixtures have finished with under 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, also in the midst of what has been a dreadful run of form since making their Premier League return, many have already tipped Fulham as the leading contender to be hit with an immediate relegation. In their opening four top-flight contests this year, much like Sunday’s hosts, the Whies are yet to record a single point so far, scoring just three and conceding 11 in return. Marking their return from the enforced break already sat at the foot of the table, it should also be noted that Fulham hold the second-worst attacking record in the Premier League so far. Now losing their last three straight contests across all competitions after their EFL Cup victory last month, it should also be noted that last year’s play-off winners have drawn a blank in all three of those consecutive defeats. In a battle between two sides enduring a woeful run of form, we’re backing a low-scoring encounter this weekend.
