Sheffield United vs Luton Town

, KO: 15:00 Dec 26, 2023, Bramall Lane
Luton Town

It is a battle of the troubled teams as Sheffield United welcome Luton Town to Bramall Lane for a Boxing Day Premier League fixture. Both teams have found things difficult this season but Sheffield have shown some fight lately and should have the edge over Luton, who are poor on their travels.

Sheffield United have shown some fight since the reappointment of Chris Wilder as manager as they are unbeaten in two of their last three matches. They are still rooted to the foot of the table but will have renewed hopes of beating the drop this season.

The Blades showed all the hallmarks of a Wilder team as they earned a 1-1 draw at in-form Aston Villa in their previous Premier League fixture. They looked to have snatched a late win following Cameron Archer's 88th minute effort but somehow conceded a dramatic injury time equaliser.

If Sheffield United are to survive this season, Bramall Lane is likely to play a pivotal role. While they have been mostly erratic this season, there have been some key results at home, including a 2-1 victory over Wolves and a 1-0 win over Brentford in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Luton Town were victorious last time out in the Premier League as they triumphed 1-0 over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Andros Townsend struck the only goal midway through the first half and they were able to hold on for the win.

It was a vital win for Luton Town as it ended a run of three straight defeats, although they had shown some fight in those fixtures. Rob Edwards’ men are now just two points from safety and could climb out of the bottom three if results go their way this week.

A major problem for Luton is their away form having picked up just one win on their travels all season. They have been beaten five times away from home and suffered a 3-1 defeat to Brentford in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Sheffield United have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 11/8 by BetVictor to claim the win. A victory for Luton Town is valued at 21/10 by bet365 while Paddy Power is offering odds of 23/10 for a draw.

Head to head

Sheffield United have a 7-6 edge with five draws from 18 previous matches against Luton Town. However, Luton claimed a 1-0 victory in their last visit to Bramall Lane in a Championship fixture back in April.

Players to watch

Cameron Archer is often a handful for opposing defenders with his pace and movement and will be the one to watch on Tuesday. Having been on target at Villa Park, the forward could be backed to get on the score sheet once again at 14/5 with William Hill.

Although he failed to get on the score sheet last time out, Elijah Adebayo remains the one to watch for Luton Town. The striker had been on target in the previous two matches and is priced at 3/1 by Unibet to find the net once again.

Anything else catch the eye?

Sheffield United and Luton Town have not been particularly solid at the back this season and both teams could be tipped to score at 10/11 with bet365. Luton have seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last four matches and a repeat is priced at 11/10 with BetVictor while over 3.5 goals is valued at 3/1 by bet365.

The Blades have opened the scoring in two of their last three matches and are priced at 10/11 with Coral to grab the first goal.
