Sheffield United vs AFC Bournemouth

, KO: 15:00 Nov 25, 2023, Bramall Lane
AFC Bournemouth

It is a battle of the strugglers as Sheffield United host Bournemouth in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Both teams have been among the poorest this season but Sheffield have done some good work at home and should have the edge over Bournemouth, who have been particularly woeful on their travels.

Like their fellow newly-promoted sides, Sheffield United have struggled to adapt to the quality of the Premier League this season. Paul Heckingbottom’s men have spent much of the campaign wallowing in the relegation zone having picked up just one win from 12 matches so far.

Sheffield United head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion last time out in the Premier League. They fought back from a goal down with Adam Webster’s own goal earning them a share of the spoils.

The major problem for Sheffield United is a leaky defence that has failed to keep a single clean sheet this season. However they will still head into Saturday’s clash with confidence as their only win this season came in their previous home fixture, a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Bournemouth are in their second consecutive Premier League season but are also finding it difficult adapting to the rigours of the topflight. They are currently in the relegation scrap, sitting just four points above the bottom three.

The Cherries were showing some improvements prior to the international break as they claimed two wins from their last three matches. First they triumphed 2-1 over Burnley before picking up a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United in their previous Premier League fixture.

While Bournemouth will be pleased with their recent form, both wins have come at home as they continue to struggle on their travels. Amdoni Iraola’s men are winless on the road this term and have actually lost six of their last seven away matches stretching back to last season.

How the bookies view it

Bournemouth are the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 6/5 by Paddy Power to claim the win. Sheffield United are considered outsiders with a home victory valued at 23/10 by BoyleSports while William Hill is offering odds of 13/5 for a draw.

Head to head

Sheffield United have only lost once to Bournemouth, claiming five wins and two draws from eight previous matches. The last meeting between both teams was a Championship clash at Bramall Lane back in 2022 which ended in a 0-0 draw.

Players to watch

Cameron Archer has caught the eye for Sheffield United this season as he often troubles defenders with his pace and movement. The forward will be looking to add to his two goals this season and is priced at 13/5 by Paddy Power to find the net on Saturday.

Dominic Solanke has been the shining light for Bournemouth this season with his brace against Newcastle United taking his tally to six goals this season. The striker was also on target in the Cherries’ only win over Sheffield United back in 2021 and is priced at 2/1 with bet365 to find the net on Saturday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Bournemouth have seen over 3.5 goals in five of their last six away games across all competitions and a repeat is priced at 2/1 by BetVictor. Over 2.5 goals could also be considered at 4/5 by bet365 while both teams could be backed to score 7/10 with William Hill.

Given Bournemouth’s abysmal form away from home, Sheffield United could be backed to score first on Saturday at 13/10 with bet365.
