Sheffield Utd – Stoke Preview

  • Bramall Lane, England’s oldest football stadium, has seen some historic matches, but the way Sheffield United are shaping up this season it looks like there will be very few memorable results here in 2021/22. The ‘Blades’ have so far responded to Premier League relegation last term with a whimper, winning just three of their 11 Championship games (D3, L5) and already sit closer to the bottom of the table than the top.
  • The tide may be turning at Bramall Lane though, with a 6-2 thrashing of Peterborough last month sparking a three-game unbeaten league run at home (W2, D1). They now welcome an old foe in Stoke City, a side Sheffield United first faced back in 1893, but one they have beaten just once across the last five H2Hs at this venue (D2, L2).
  • While visiting boss Michael O’Neill could use those recent H2H results as motivation for his squad, he likely won’t need to as this ‘Potters’ side are already flying high in the league (W6, D3, L2) and look like potential promotion candidates. A win as underdogs over West Brom last time out showed they can take points off anyone this term, and they’re unlikely to be fazed by starting as outsiders again here.
  • Still, there’s no doubt their Championship away form has plenty of room for improvement (W1, D2, L2), and their downfall this season may be a forward line that is struggling to find the net on the road, averaging just one goal a game so far.
  • Players to watchBilly Sharp looks set for his 304th appearance in Sheffield United colours – his last two Championship strikes opened the scoring. Once lauded by Sir Alex Ferguson who signed him back in 2012, Nick Powell has looked a class act in recent weeks scoring in four straight Stoke appearances, three times grabbing the opener.
  • Hot stat: Four of Sheffield United’s last six Championship games have featured a penalty.
